Beautiful Dubrovnik

Despite the terrible weather over the past few days, nothing was hiding just how beautiful Dubrovnik's Old Town is. Dubrovnik is a small City, with a population of around 40k - in 1979 it joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

The prosperity of the city was historically based on maritime trade; as the capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, it achieved a high level of development, particularly during the 15th and 16th centuries, as it became notable for its wealth and skilled diplomacy. [source Wiki]



Whichever direction you turn, the Old Town doesn't fail to deliver on beauty. It was very busy though - with huge Cruise ships docking in the nearby Ports. Prices are higher than other areas of Croatia (mostly due to the Cruise ship trade) but it's still much cheaper than London. As the weather wasn't great during my trip I decided against taking a boat trip - but I'm definitely going to visit this City again, and hopefully with better weather so that I can truly make the most of it.
