Discover the history of the Dubrovnik Republic on this magnificent replica of the 16th century traditional carrack.

Carrack ships were 3 or 4 masted ships used between the 14th and 17th century intended for cargo transport. They were among the largest ships sailing of that period. During the 16th century when the Republic was at its peak.

The travel agency “Navicula” has undertaken the complex task of building a replica of an historic Dubrovnik's carrack to expand the tourism possibilities and to illuminate the maritime history of Dubrovnik. The reconstruction of the "Karaka" was quite a challenge since no maps or blueprints of an original Dubrovnik's carrack exist. Most of the information was collected and assorted from descriptions and pictures available at the Dubrovnik Maritime Museum.
