My Dubrovnik Game
My Dubrovnik is a unique video game that combines elements of city manager and historical discovery. We invite you to the beautiful world of the old town of Dubrovnik, its streets, monuments and magnificent views. We want you as mayors to show us how this amazing city has to be run, to enjoy it and to discover the enchanting historical stories hidden within the game.
Realistic view of Dubrovnik city!
The game features a realistic model of the old town of Dubrovnik. As you move through the game, you will feel as if you are visiting a real Dubrovnik. Our phenomenal 3D modellers build a model of the real city of Dubrovnik, and minimally modified to make it passable for the game. All important points of Dubrovnik have been preserved and through the game we enable you to find out information about key monuments, so at the end of the game you will have the feeling that you have already visited Dubrovnik. So for example when you get to Orlando’s Column, you will find out that in the Middle Ages fairs were held in that square around him and that his hand, more precisely the part from elbow to toe, was used as a measure of length. It has a length of 52.1 cm. You will find out for example how the people of Dubrovnik kept gunpowder in the Rector’s Palace until it exploded and caught fire for the third time, although it was extremely dangerous, because gunpowder in the Middle Ages was a very valuable commodity that was kept as gold. You will also find out where the secret passage under Stradun that connected the female and male monastery was located.

You will meet Miho Pracat the only man to which Dubrovnik Republic ever put up a statue because of his care for the community and persistence in hard work. After he lost his wealth twice, he was watching a lizard climbing the wall. It fell twice, but tried again… and succeeded. That little creature gave him the strength to try again. And he made it! After the third attempt, Miho Pracat became the richest citizen of Dubrovnik in the long history of that Republic, and after his death he shared all his wealth for charitable purposes and bequeathed it to the Republic of Dubrovnik.
Numerous anecdotes about his resourcefulness are known. So he once found himself in Africa in an area where there were big problems due to numerous mice. Miho Pracat returned to his native Dubrovnik, loaded a ship full of cats, drove it back to Africa and sold it well.
