Awestruck~


by Dubrovnik!


George Bernard Shaw called the city “paradise on earth,”

and it is easy to see why.

Dubrovnik is a 12th Century masterpiece sitting on the jewel like Adriatic Sea.

The old city is surrounded by towering medieval walls, looming up to 80 feet over the city.

The walls can be walked in entirety,

offerring incredible views over the old city and the sea.

Game of Thrones was filmed here,


because the city retains a magical sense of unique ancientness.

Cheers to you from magical old Dubrovnik~

  1. It is pretty isn’t it? If you’re heading up the coast, there’s a little town called Rovinj, which is the only place my wife and I ever went back to for a holiday.

  2. Truly beautiful, ” paradise on earth”, and who knew that of thrones was filmed there….
    And this city is in wich country? I can obviously look it up in google but you know I’m to lazy
    (wink wink I winking here)

  3. What a beautiful place, I love the buildings with their red roofs! The sea looks gorgeous too. Thanks so much for sharing these with us Cindy. Sounds like you are having a wonderful time πŸ™‚

  4. Wow. How fascinating. Did you walk the walls? I watched Game of Thrones once. This city seems to be the perfect setting. The photos are stunning. I love old cities, the history, geographics, and the architecture.

    • I love old cities too, and their imposing walls, and can understand well, why they had them. I did walk them and wish I could have brought you along. Hugs to you dear friend, and thank you for traveling with me~ ❀

  5. You photo stories are absolutely amazing, Cindy! What a delight for sore eyes. ❀ Now we feel awestruck! πŸ™‚

  6. So beautiful! What amazes me about these cities is that there appears to be no space to even walk between buildings! But whereas in modern cities that looks cluttered, here it just adds to the charm!

    • Exactly! These corridors are built for a person to walk through single file. They fascinate me. In some cities they create mazes that are so fun to get lost in, and hopefully, eventually found!
