Cavtat comprises a wide coastal area with two peninsulas - Rat and Supetar, which enclose two ports. Cavtat existed as the Adriatic Epidaurus and Civitas Vetus both in Helenic and Roman times, as the predecessor of Dubrovnik. After the fall of the Western Roman Empire and invasion of the Slavs and Avars, Epidaurus was devastated. According to the legend, inhabitants moved to the neighbouring Laus, a settlement from which Dubrovnik grew later on. Among the great men that were born in Cavtat are Baldo Bogisic, Vlaho Bukovac Luko Zore and Frano Supilo.
