Dubrovnik IPA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Phonetic_Alphabet): [ˈdǔ.bro̞ːʋ.nik]) is an historic city on the Adriatic Sea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adriatic_Sea) coast in the extreme south of Croatia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croatia), positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isthmus_of_Dubrovnik). It is one of the most prominent tourist (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourist) destinations on the Adriatic, a seaport (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seaport) and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubrovnik-Neretva_county). Its population was 43,770 in 2001 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2001)[1] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubrovnik#_note-0) down from 49,728 in 1991 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1991).[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dubrovnik#_note-1) In 2001 the absolute majority of its citizens declared themselves as Croats (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croats) with 88.39% (2001 census (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Census)).
Since 1979, the historic centre of Dubrovnik has been included in the UNESCO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_Nations_Educational%2C_Scientific_and_Cultu ral_Organisation) list of World Heritage Sites (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Heritage_Site).
The prosperity of the city of Dubrovnik has always been based on maritime trade. In the Middle Ages (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Middle_Ages), as the Republic of Ragusa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_of_Ragusa), it became the only eastern Adriatic city-state (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City-state) to rival Venice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venice). Supported by its wealth and skilled diplomacy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diplomacy), the city achieved a remarkable level of development, particularly during the 15th (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/15th_century) and 16th centuries (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16th_century). Ragusa was one of the centres of the development of the Croatian language (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croatian_language) and literature (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Croatian_literature), home to many notable poets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poet), playwrights (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Playwright), painters (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Painter), mathematicians (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mathematician), physicists (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physicist) and other scholars (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scholar).

Surface: Hard

Cape Town (Afrikaans (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afrikaans) and Dutch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dutch_language): Kaapstad; Xhosa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xhosa_language): iKapa) is the third most populous city (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_largest_cities_in_South_Africa_by_populati on) in South Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Africa), forming part of the metropolitan municipality (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metropolitan_municipality_%28South_Africa%29) of the City of Cape Town (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_of_Cape_Town). It is the provincial capital (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital) of the Western Cape (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Western_Cape), as well as the legislative (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legislature) capital of South Africa, where the National Parliament (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Parliament_of_South_Africa) and many government offices are located. Cape Town is famous for its harbour as well as its natural setting in the Cape floral kingdom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_floral_kingdom), including such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Table_Mountain) and Cape Point (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Point). Often regarded as one of the world's most beautiful cities because of its geography, Cape Town is the most popular South African destination for tourism (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tourism).
Cape Town was originally developed as a victualling station for Dutch (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Netherlands) ships sailing to Eastern Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eastern_Africa), India (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/India), and the Far East (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Far_East) more than 200 years before the construction of the Suez Canal (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suez_Canal) in 1869. Jan van Riebeeck (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jan_van_Riebeeck)'s arrival on 6 April (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/April_6)1652 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1652) established the first permanent European settlement in South Africa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_Africa). Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Castle_of_Good_Hope). It was the largest city in South Africa until the growth of Johannesburg (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Johannesburg) and Durban (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durban).
According to the 2001 Census (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/South_African_National_Census_of_2001), the city has a population of 2.95 million.[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Town#_note-mdb-ctmp2006) Cape Town's land area of 2,499 square kilometres (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_kilometre) (965 sq mi (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Square_mile)) is larger than other South African cities, resulting in a comparatively lower population density of 1,158 people per square kilometre (2,999/sq mi).[2] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cape_Town#_note-mdb-ctmp2006) Cape Town is town twinned (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Town_twinning) with Nice (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nice) in France (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/France) and Haifa (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Haifa) in Israel (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israel).

1° International Ladies Tournament of Augusta Siracusa

Surface: Clay

http://www2.esperia.it/Images/localita/siracusa_provincia.jpg


Syracuse (Italian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italian_language) Siracusa, Sicilian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicilian_language) Sarausa, Greek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_traditional_Greek_place_names) Συρακοῦσαι, Latin (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Latin_language) Syracusae) is an Italian (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Italy) city on the eastern coast of Sicily (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sicily) and the capital of the province of Syracuse (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Province_of_Syracuse). Once described by Cicero (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cicero) as "the greatest Greek city and the most beautiful of them all," the ancient center of Syracuse is on the UNESCO (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UNESCO)World Heritage List (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World_Heritage_List).
Syracuse and its surrounding area have been inhabited since ancient times, as shown by the findings in the villages of Stentinello, Ognina, Plemmirio, Matrensa, Cozzo Pantano and Thapsos, which already had a relationship with Mycenaean Greece (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mycenaean_Greece).
Syracuse was founded in 734 or 733 BC by Greek (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Greece) settlers from Corinth (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corinth%2C_Greece) and Tenea (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tenea), led by the oecist (colonizer) Archias (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Archias), who called it Sirako, referring to a nearby swamp. The nucleus of the ancient city was the small island of Ortygia. The settlers found the land to be fertile and the native tribes to be reasonably well-disposed to their presence. The city grew and prospered, and for some time stood as the most powerful Greek city anywhere in the Mediterranean (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mediterranean)
