St. Blaise (St. Vlaho)
The traditional patron saint of Dubrovnik is St. Vlaho, known in English and French as St. Blaise. Images and sculptures of this saint can be found all over town, and in each one, he's shown holding the entire city of Dubrovnik in his hands.
A good place for teenagers....
....when they get out of hand.
This is one of the towers on the wall around the old town of Dubrovnik. The building of the city walls began in the 12th century. The Dubrovnik Statutes mention that new, stronger walls were in the process of being built, while documents dating back to 1296 mention them as finished.
Fishing off the Old Town's Banks
The water's clear and warm...the scenery is great...and the sun is setting. I'm watching these Italians fish and swim (at the same time!). No wonder they didn't catch anything. Or maybe they just wanted to look busy for me.
One of the alternatives in our free day in Dubrovnik was a trip to the Elaphiti Islands. Having visited worderful Islands as Hvar, Korcula or Peljesac we thought that it wouldn't add much to our program, and decided to visit Mostar. Anyway, the island of Lokrum, just some minutes away from town, was easy to see from the distance, and, though adding harmony to the views of the city, it seemed empty - I know that it has a botanic garden, and a Benedictine monastery, but... one cannot see everything, and the curiosity about Mostar...
I used to love going to Buza 1 (a beach bar, probably much different than how you are imagining it....The beach is rocky, there is a small bar, torches all over the beach, the music is good) but this year it turned from simple cool laid back place to "upscale" crap(o.o.p.s.) with VERY VERY HIGH prices. A beer is 35 kunas - elsewhere it is between 15-25....Ridiculous. I will never go back again. Ripoff.
And you alse need to wait for an hour to get service....
