Dubrovnik, Croatia

We began our day in Dubrovnik with a walking tour with a local guide. The walls of Dubrovnik are over 800 years old and the interior of the old city is steeped with history.  In 1991, after Croatia declared its independence, Dubrovnik was bombed by the Serbian-Montenegrian remains of the JNA (Yugoslav People’s Army). The city was heavily damaged, but has been well restored. The picture below features some ancient graffiti carved into one of Dubrovnik’s walls.

Marijan explained that early morning and evening are the best times to visit the city center. In the afternoon, cruise ships dock and  thousands of travelers explore the streets. We were sad to see our trip coming to an end. We had our farewell dinner at More Hotel. Below the hotel there is bar built into a cave.
