Looking around Dubrovnik, Croatia 

Just a few snaps as I’m going through the city of Dubrovnik. I can see why is a ‘must see’ place in Croatia. So old, so detailed and full of history. They are so many think to say about Dubrovnik, I bet you already know the history and if you don’t it’s not hard to just google it. I’m just bringing you some street view 😊

Fountain where you can freely drink water. Delicious.  


Before you climb up to the walls of Dubrovnik, there is so much to see. If you like photography you will love Dubrovnik. And if you looove history you will enjoy this city completely.  
Have a nice day and don’t forget to follow 😊

Sunset on Dubrovnik old city walls 

If you are a Star Wars fan you probably heard about new episode of it is filmed in Dubrovnik, Croatia. Well, I was there during the shooting of it and what you didn’t hear is – we couldn’t walk in old part of the city or take photos. Everything was a movie set. 

So, I stopped here, on the top of the stairs and snapped a quck photo of a sunset on Dubrovnik walls. Enjoy 💛

  

Outside the walls, Dubrovnik, Croatia 

You only have one chance to see outside the walls but you need to rent a boat! You can go on big boat, wooden boat, boat with a glass bottom and a regular one. Also you can pedal in the kayak! Anything you pick, it’s fine. You will see it all.


Not only the walls, you can look at the outside Dubrovnik and just see it all!


Nothing to do with boat theme but I have one for the streets again 😉 I just love tiny streets!

That amazing view – Split. Croatia

When you get out in the back of Diocletian palace your eyes will lay on this view. Love love love it!

Statue of Grgur Ninski, made my Ivan Meštrović. Don’t forget to rub his toe and make a wish! 🙂 

Grgur Ninski, who strongly opposed the Pope and official circles of the Church and introduced the national language in the religious services after the Great Assembly in 926.  Until that time, services were held only in Latin, not being understandable to the majority of the population. Not only was this important for Croatian language and culture but it also made Christianity stronger within the Croatian kingdom.

Surrounded by history – Split, Croatia

Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, centered on the Roman Palace of the Emperor Diocletian.

Church of ST. Donatus, Zadar, Croatia

A stunning sight as you walk around center of beautiful Zadar.   Its name refers to Donatus of Zadar, who began construction on this church in the 9th century and ended it on the northeastern part of the Roman forum. Church of St. Donatus is the largest Pre-romanesque building in Croatia. Originally named the church of the Holy Trinity in the 15th century it was renamed the Church of St. Donatus. Definitely a sight to see, inside and outside. I just love it.

In second half of 1. century Romans occupied this place and built a city in their standard – decumanus and cardo – style.

Reading the history of this Roman forum and looking at the ruins that are still here, is amazing just to think what was going on and what they witnessed all this hundreds of years. It’s never just a peace of stone as it’s peace of amazing history.
