Position

Mokošica is the first major western suburban town of Dubrovnik (7 km from Dubrovnik). It was named after Mokosh, the goddess of fertility and protector of women. It is located just above the Adriatic Highway which leads to Split. From the north and east it is surrounded by the high mountains of the Dalmatian coast. Towards the north lies the slopes of Golubov Kamen Hill. From the 16th century onwards Mokošica was the summer location for the citizens of Dubrovnik (House of Bona, Zuzorić, Ragnina, and Giorgi). The most important building is Gozze-Giorgi, villa where in 1814 the council met for the last time to restore the Republic of Ragusa. In the vicinity of Mokošica, the coast is highly indented with beautiful bays and the very attractive sandy beaches which are suitable for family tourism. Main branches of economy in Mokošica are tourism, shipbuilding and fishing. In the immediate vicinity of Komolac there is a marina. ACI Marina Dubrovnik in Komolac is the holder of a blue flag, and is located near the source of the river Ombla. The marina is completely protected from storm waves and the sea. It is considered to be one of the safest marinas in the world.
