Dubrovnik



Vladimir from Croatia contacted me through my blog to arrange a swap. The postcards from Croatia always show those beautiful typically summerish scenes, so I gladly said yes! Along with a splendid view of Dubrovnik, I found some very pretty stamps on the card as well.



Lord Byron was not overstating the matter when he proclaimed Dubrovnik ‘the pearl of the Adriatic’. Dubrovnik is clearly special. A magnificent curtain of walls surrounds marble streets and baroque buildings that exude a pearly light in the Adriatic sun. The main pedestrian thoroughfare, Placa, is a melange of cafés and shops with outstanding monuments at either end. Churches, monasteries and museums ornamented with finely carved stone recall an eventful history and a vibrant artistic tradition. Beyond the city is a heavenly landscape of beaches, wooded peninsulas and a sea strewn with lush islands. [source: lonelyplanet]


Thank you very much Vladimir!
