Dubrovnik, Croatia has become the pearl of the Adriatic and is most commonly known for the complex fort system of the city walls surrounded by beautiful waters. Retained so perfectly since the medieval times, the city walls have become a UNESCO World Heritage site.
As we entered through the main Pile Gate, I immediately noticed the unique white limestone beauty circulating the city and the stone bridge leading up to the entrance. Surely a strong fortification of the middle ages used as defense from foreign attacks. The Pile Gate, always open so visitors can come and go as they please, leads to the inner Pile which ultimately guides to the city core.
As we make our way to Placa street, the main open area, I can’t help but notice Renaissance and Gothic arches and grand Romanesque doors. Once at Placa street, there are many tourists as it is the venue for gatherings, festivities and is overall an enjoyable promenade. Placa street is also where businesses are as it is the city core and near the Sponza palace (see photos above), which was once a bank and a treasury, where the avenues divide into the north and south halves.
The Sponza palace is original and still stands strong with beautiful white and elegant arches, perfect to sit by, just for a few moments as I did.
Until next time,
And Happy Holidays
