Ancient city of Dubrovnik.
Every year we spent few days in Dubrovnik visiting our friend. Every year there is not enough time to photograph everything I would like. That balance between socialising, vacationing and working is always hard to find.
“Dubrovnik is a city in southern Croatia fronting the Adriatic Sea. It’s known for its distinctive Old Town, encircled with massive stone walls completed in the 16th century. Its well-preserved buildings range from baroque St. Blaise Church to Renaissance Sponza Palace and Gothic Rector’s Palace, now a history museum. Paved with limestone, the pedestrianised Stradun (or Placa) is lined with shops and restaurants.” Wikipedia
The year of 2020 was hard on Dubrovnik as the city mainly depends on air traffic and cruise ships to bring tourists in. The whole economy of the city was badly hit. It took them a month or two just to realise that they need to offer something else and try to attract domestic tourists to save the season. So, the season was shifted to a late season and it was very, very different. For me, as a photographer it was great to enjoy almost empty streets. It was great to experience the city as locals do.
