Beautiful Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik
You must go up onto the wall and circle the city if you are physically able. This is a fantastic experience. Cost is 30 Kuna Croatian, which is less than $US10.
Fondest memory: Views... From every point the views are spectacular.
Favorite thing: 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.
Dubrovnik is rich in cultural and historical monuments and is included in UNESCO World Heritage List.
The very favourable geographical position of Dubrovnik made its development based on maritime and merchant activities very successful through its history. From the entrance to the Adriatic Sea, Dubrovnik is the first port protected by islands on the maritime route to the West, and by way of the Neretva Valley, it has the fastest connection with its hinterland. New archaelogical excavations in the foundations of the present City prove that a settlement existed in the 6th century or even earlier.
The photo shows me & Alen having our drinks at a table in the Old Town of Dubrovnik.
People watching, enjoying the sights in the Old Town. So lively !
This is what I love most about Dubrovnik. Inside this Old Wall, people were enjoying themself & trendy young guys & girls parading themself, with their flashy clothes & mobile phones.
It's a sight that we could see in much much bigger cities !
Favorite thing: Just walk in the streets, main street Stradun is nice, but also the rest. Enjoy various artists performing at the open spaces and feel the good atmosphere. Lots of restaurants. Lots of tourists in July.
All houses are built from a special stone, from the island of Brac. Also the pavement is made from this stone. What is interesting about this stone is the fact that it gets very shiny after years of walking on it.
Fondest memory: The White House is known to be made of stone from Brac island..like houses in Dubrovnik
Favorite thing: The Stradun is the main Dubrovnik's street. It is inside the walls of the ancient city and you can find many shops, bars, cafe, restaurants and so on. It is full of tourists and it's absolutely lovely.
Fondest memory: A late night stroll on Stradun is magical. The white marble pavers glistten from the lights - the night sky above the Old Town - a gentle breeze - the sound of laughter drifting from bars on the side streets - the bells of the churches ringing on the hour.
Favorite thing: Dubrovnik has some gorgeous views and it's a very romantic city to travel to. The coastline is spectacular ans worthy of many photos.
Fondest memory: Those little alleys are absolutely amazing. There you can find some nice shops and hidden restaurants which serve delicious seafood! Go and taste it!
Favorite thing: Hundreds of alley and corridors with beautiful sights and nooks for discover are at your hand..try to lose yourself and go away from the most touristic cobbled streets where the bloody tourist are!
