Old City of Dubrovnik: the city walls

The walled city of Dubrovnik, a listed World Heritage Site of UNESCO since 1979 and extended in 1994 after the restoration works carried out following the war.
The city of Dubrovnik is a significant case for my research especially because it can illustrate problems of heritage conservation in conflicting nationalisms and the power of heritage in national identity building. Moreover this city can showcase the effectiveness of the World Heritage Convention.
