In late 2007 I got the chance to travel to the city of Dubrovnik on Croatia's Adriatic coast (Dalmatia).

As usual, clicking a picture makes it bigger.

Dubrovnik is surrounded by massive medieval fortifications, and is nestled between sheer mountains and the Adriatic. Variously a maritime republic and a Venetian possession, it developed many modern institutions in the middle ages. The nearby island of Lokrum is reputedly cursed, and Richard The Lionheart is said to have been shipwrecked there.
