Being able to walk the perimeter of a walled city on the Adriatic and look to the right and see the sea, and to the left see the rooftops of such an historic city was extremely special. The history of Dubrovnik dates back as far as the seventh century, but this historic city with its drawbridges and 18 foot high walls is far from antiquated. Those walls and drawbridges provided a place of refuge for Croatians during the Croatian War of Independence, which took place from 1991-1995. Today, the entire city of Dubrovnik is a UNESCO world heritage site. If you ever have the chance to visit Dubrovnik, I highly recommend walking the city walls and experiencing the view from above of the Adriatic and the city. Here are a few photos from our walk.
