Sun!


Ha, the sun came out - finally - at 2pm on my final day in Dubrovnik. And what a difference it made! The pale limestone and red clay-tiled roofs look lovely against a bright blue sky. This is Dubrovnik's main square, at the eastern end of Stradun, the wide central boulevard that bisects the old walled city. In the centre, Orlando's Column portrays an image of the knight Orlando. Dating back to 1419, it is a symbol of the city's sovereignty and freedom. The Renaissance-Gothic building with the arched colonnade is the Sponza Palace, formerly the customs house and treasury of the Republic, now a museum housing the Dubrovnik State archives.
