Dubrovnik in the Evening

By Ross in Travel on Wed 02 July 2014. Tags: Croatia

I decided not to linger in Montenegro, and I caught the 1555 bus to Dubrovnik, Croatia. When I got to the bus station, I was once again approached by people offering rooms. I ended up with a comfortable room to myself in the house of Ivana Duric, whose family has lived in Dubrovnik for many generations. It is a lovely old house, conveniently located about a fifteen minute walk from the old city. The house is surrounded by a stone wall, inside which is a lovely garden as well as several sleepy cats and one sleepy dog.

After settling in, I walked to the old city. This is Bokar Fortress, one of the larger fortifications on the city walls.

The Minceta Tower is the highest point of the city walls.

I headed through the old city to the harbor, which I reached just after sunset.

From the old port, I took this picture of swallows silhouetted against a bell tower.

This is Dubrovnik Cathedral.

And, finally, here is the crescent moon seen through the skyline.
