RIT Croatia Dubrovnik Campus
RIT Croatia campus in Dubrovnik is located in the vicinity of the Dubrovnik Old Town at the address Don Frana Bulića 6. The campus building is home to more than 200 students, staff and faculty.
Dubrovnik is truly a unique destination that magnificently combines the natural beauty of the pristine Adriatic Sea and mountainous Croatian landscape with outstanding architecture and old-world charm. The stunning city of Dubrovnik with its historic Old Town became a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1979. The gleaming marble streets are lined with baroque buildings and Renaissance fountains and have recently become the setting for the popular television series "Game of Thrones”. The history of Dubrovnik is a fascinating study of the rise of a great maritime power that lived in peace and prosperity for nearly five centuries. But Dubrovnik is so much more than a fascinating Old Town. It is a first- class Adriatic resort completed with beautiful pebble beaches and vibrant nightlife.
