Finally, Up at the Fort Lovrijenac Commanding The Adriatic Sea

“Non bene pro toto libertas venditur auro”

Freedom is not to be sold for all the treasures in the world

– Motto of Republic of Ragusa


The mighty Fort Lovrijenac, or St. Lawrence Fortress, has been built upon a 37 meter high sheer rock defending the city of Dubrovnik of the Republic of Ragusa from the sea and land, dating back to 1018 or 1038.


Very clear Emerald water at Pile Harbor. It seems Emerald/Topaz color is to be found rather easily in nature in Croatia, such as at Plitvice National Park.


It’d be a good idea to start from the City Walls, as the City Walls ticket includes admittance to this place as well. And you can’t and shouldn’t pass the City Walls while you’re there.
If not, not-so-friendly staff here will ask for 30 Kuna ($4.50 USD).


The old well is sealed well.


Oh, the vast Adriatic Sea.


Somehow the Adriatic feels romantic, without any specific reason..


Gradac Park, the site where they filmed the Purple Wedding feast, and Joffrey’s death of Game of Thrones.


Down at the Pile Harbor.


Just couldn’t take my eyes off of it as the City Walls from this side looks just too attractive and handsome..
