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

To complete the scene, the town lives there, in bars, shops and crowds wandering...

    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 (they said...) forced some changes. No problem for us!
