Arriving in Dubrovnik, Croatia

We had a nice flight from Gatwick in London, only about 4 hours – but after the 24 hours from New Zealand we amazingly were quite OK.

An early morning walk to the top of the hill behind the old city

We arrived yesterday from New Zealand – a trip of more than 36 hours. I woke early and decided to walk to the top of the hill behind the old city of Dubrovnik. I did not have a map or any directions but a general idea of how to get up there.

Walking through the town

I found a road and followed it and ended up a little bit above the old town

More up hill steps and then a wonderful view

I found an old track on the other side of the main road and decided to ascend it.

The track had crosses lying down on the ground and then a zig-zag track up to the top

At the top I found a beautiful monument

Wonderful views over the old town of Dubrovnik and also out across the water. I zoomed into the area we were staying and you can just make out the large balcony overlooking the marina.

At the top was a cable car station that had been destroyed in the war – quite dangerous – basically just left there. The centre photo shows a toilet in the building in the first photo.
