Dubrovnik was founded in the first half of the 7th century by combining Ragusa, a camp of refugees from Epidaurus, who were looking for salvation in the valley from the Avar-Slavic invasion and earthquakes that shook the region, and the Croatian settlement of Dubrava. The channel that separated the city buildings was subsequently drained and transformed into the central street of Dubrovnik – Stradun.
