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.
