Medieval Town of Dubrovnik is medieval fortress in the area of Višnjica, Ilijaš municipality, Bosnia and Herzegovina. Although there are no precise data on the origin of the city, it is assumed that it was built in the 13th century because it was first mentioned in the Dubrovnik archives, on July 11, 1404.

It is believed that the town was named after the medieval merchants from Dubrovnik who came in that period with the approval of the Bosnian king to exploit the mines of lead, zinc, gold and other precious materials.

While the work is progressing (albeit at a standstill for now) the old town is taking on what is likely to be a beautiful shape. Let's hope that it will have the contents that were there before, at least symbolically.

I decided to run to the medieval city of Dubrovnik, from Stari Ilijaš, across Misoča. Good trail. Great for running or cycling.

The Church of the Holy Cross

The church of the former Franciscan monastery was built probably between 1515 and 1520. It is located in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Rauma. The church stands by the small stream of Raumanjoki (Rauma river).

The exact age of the Church of the Holy Cross is unknown, but it was built to serve as the monastery church of the Rauma Franciscan Friary. The monastery had been established in the early 15th century and a wooden church was built on this location around the year 1420.

The Church of the Holy Cross served the monastery until 1538, when it was abandoned for a hundred years as the Franciscan friary was disbanded in the Swedish Reformation. The church was re-established as a Lutheran church in 1640, when the nearby Church of the Holy Trinity was destroyed by fire.

The choir of the two-aisle grey granite church features medieval murals and frescoes. The white steeple of the church was built in 1816 and has served as a landmark for seafarers.
