    The (mandatory) walk on the walls of Dubrovnik has two different sides: the ocean side and the land side.

    Promoted as the most complete Roman amphitheater, that may only apply to its external walls.

    Why to use unnecessary letters? The funniest thing we found in this "not really seen" island was the name, without any vowel. The most practical was the port, that saved us a couple of hours of navigation, in a confuse start of our tour. It was supposed to start in Opatija, but the rain (?) forced some changes. No problem for us!
