Dubrovnik Photos:-

A very photogenic city!


This page shows a selection of views mostly taken either from Mount Srd or from the surrounding ramparts.


Dubrovnik built its iconic defensive walls in the 15th century in response to Ottoman expansion. However  it wasn't until the Homelands war of 1991 that they proved their worth. If you notice in the aerial photos that most buildings have new bright orange roof tiles. This shows the extent of the bombings, mostly by the Serbs from Mount Srd.


There are two main gates into the city used nowadays: from the West the Pile gate & from the East the Ploce gate.














































The Minceta Tower designed by the Florentine architect, Michelozzo, who was also responsible for the refurbishment of the Rector's Palace (City Sights) and the construction of Ston's great wall.










































Now just a tourist trap, but great for a picnic lunch.








































































































The rather diminutive St Blaise Church is in the centre  of this photo with the Cathedral behind.
