Afternoon in Dubrovnik

Once again, I was a tourist in my own country. Although this was my third visit to Dubrovnik, the town never seizes to amaze me. It’s still as gorgeous as ever, despite all the visitors. I went there with my friend Kyle, as one of the stops on our four day trip to southern Dalmatia. We didn’t get to see all of it, but enough to experience the afternoon vibe of the city.

Our initial plan was to walk the walls of Old Town, but we ended up visiting the Lovrijenac fort only. It has the famous view of the city. Kyle made some nice panoramic shots. I only had my 50mm with me so I couldn’t capture the entire city. Still, I’m happy with the little bits I managed to photograph. I’m not a fan of direct sun, but Dubrovnik is one of those cities that looks good regardless of the time of day.

We weren’t typical tourists. Yes, we walked the old cobbled streets pointing out Star Wars/Game of Thrones filming locations, but we spent a lot of the afternoon chilling in the shade and eating fries in a nice bar near the Old Town. We kinda managed to avoid the tourists by walking the less known little alleyways and streets that can be found on higher levels. Basically, it was cats and us.

Would be nice if we could take the Dubrovnik Cable Car all the way up to Mount Srđ to get that famous view. Or walk the Walls. However, we chose to have a casual afternoon in Dubrovnik without putting too much pressure on ourselves. I think we made the right decision. And not seeing it all just makes it more probable that we might return one day. Or at least one of us. God bless!

    I’m visiting Croatia next month and I’m so excited already!
    Would love to know some of your fav places to take pictures of not so touristy places alongside the Dalmatian coast. Please let me know if it’s not much of a hassle for you.

    p.s. you’re one of my most fav photographer on flickr for ages. Love your photos, love your unique style. Keep it up!

      Apart from Dubrovnik, we visited place called Ston. It doesn’t have many tourists but it’s simply gorgeous. It’s kind of like mini Dubrovnik, has the longest walls in Europe. Also, cute coastal places are Primošten, Omiš, Rogoznica as well as cities like Šibenik.
      Also the islands; Korčula, Hvar, Mljet. You can’t go wrong either way.

      Thank you ^^
