I love this game cos there's so MANY great places I haven't visited!!!
That's true and I would add: that I want to visit some time.

You are right, or it is Greece or one of the countries that formed the Yugoslavia

Take a look, you almost reach the place and you don't see the city. On this pictures is just in front. You have to make an effort to see the walls that surround all city, I mean on the bottom and they are big. The scale is so big that makes the city tiny

Great night live

Some great clues: A geographical one.

The city is on a big Fjord, one of the few as south and certainly the most impressive. The Fjord has the name of the town even if the word fjord is not used there.

A historical one:

This city belonged to the Venetian Republic from 1420 to 1797. It was a big rival of Ragusa (Dubrovnick) that was independent for a time and later belonged to Byzantium. The two big rivals on the Eastern Med, the Turks and the Venetians.
