St. Francis of Assisi and the Franciscan Church in Dubrovnik

by sungmoctr

I Heard a legend about the Franciscan Church in Dubrovnik, that it has been built in accordance with the wishes of St. Francis himself who earlier sailed
along the Adriatic Coast and his ship has been destroyed by the storm, was saved, and he spent the night (or sometime) in Dubrovnik.

Is there truth to it?

Hi ,
what I found out is that on his way to holy land he stopped in Dalmatia, Zadar ,Split and Dubrovnik.
Some people said st. Peter was preaching on Mljet island.
All are legends it is hard to tell it was a true.
But they have nice Church.
God Bless you

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Lokrum: hide and seek ...

by KristaB

Beaches on Lokrum island are natural flat stone terraces, perfect for sunbathing, swimming, people watching … You can pick your favorite balcony and observe either sea or people, both very interesting. And often there are cruise ships anchored between Lokrum and coastline. Then you are lucky to be on the island, because Dubrovnik is easily overcrowded with hundreds, even thousands of fast walking picture clicking people who leave within couple of hours believing they know Dubrovnik. No, they just touched its polished marble streets. But some of them (those of romantic sensitive constitution are especially vulnerable) get addicted, and want to come back. The town is small, limited within those mighty walls - if you want to enjoy it, come in June or September.
Taxi - boats transfers to Lokrum all day from old city harbor.

Orlando

by croisbeauty

Right in the middle of Luža Square is a high and slender stone column with flag-staff, decorated with the figure of the legendary medieval knight Roland (or Orlando in local speech). The column, carved by the famous sculptor Bonino da Milano, was set up in 1418. It is a fine example of monumental Gothic sculpture.
The question is, how this knight, the symbol of north European cities, came to southern Adriatic. In the 15th century Dubrovnik was protected by Sigismund, the King of Hungary, Croatia and Bohemia. Sigismund was Margrave of Brandenburg, a German province where such columns were common. Thus Roland of Dubrovnik is symbol of loyalty to Sigismund, whose protection was crucial in the strife against Venice.
Orlando, as the locals call it, is one of the emblems of Dubrovnik.

Hoops Crazy!

by acemj

Basketball is a popular sport in Croatia and the country's national team has had a lot of success on the international level. Most notably, at the Barcelona Olympics in 1992 they won the silver medal losing only to the greatest team of all-time, the USA's Dream Team featuring Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson and Larry Bird. Some of the best Croatian-born players include Toni Kukoc, Dino Radja and the late, great Drazen Petrovic. Drazen died in a car accident in 1993, but I remember him as a great player for the New Jersey Nets and one of the best pure shooters I've ever seen.

I took this picture at the port in front of the Old Town. Maybe the reason Croatian players are such good shooters is the placement of the hoops. If you missed a shot long on this hoop, the ball would end up floating in the Adriatic!

Kotor

by TheWanderingCamel

We'd been told the town of Kotor, a scenic 1 1/2 hour drive from Dubrovnik, was well worth a visit, and when we were told we could take our hire car into Montenegro without any extra paperwork or insurance, our mind was made up. A mediaeval walled city to rival Dubrovnik, albeit on a smaller scale, was promised and Kotor delivered. Set on the far end of the Gulf of Kotor, the walls of the city seem to be vertical as they climb for 4.5 km up and down the mountain behind the city. Entering the city through the main gate (meeting some of the city's seniour citizens on the way) by the harbour, we found we had the narrow streets and elegant squares virtually to ourselves on a hot Sunday in June.
The town is charming with street after street lined with old stone buildings. With its palaces, churches and those astounding walls it's hard to realize the town was severely damaged by a massive earthquake in 1979. UNESCO funded much of the restoration since when the city has been declared a World Heritage site.

Spectacular as the the walls of Kotor are, for me the abiding memory of the little town is the heady perfume which filled the air as we towards drove down the long avenue leading through the modern part of town. Huge magnolias line the road and when I got out of the car to go into the bank the perfume was everywhere. It was wonderful!

You'd need to come in summer for this olfactory experience. The old walled city is there for visitors at any time of year

The First Night...

by coceng

I came to the Old Town with Alen & it was really lively ! people were almost everywhere but when you walk to some of the small streets within the Old Town, you could hardly see anybody. Accept maybe some couples commiting sins or married couples having babies !

I cannot put those photos on here but you can see the Old Town during the night time. Many tables & chairs to attract passers-by for a drink or 2.
