DUBROVNIK: Why I fell in love with this city?

Tripoto

I suggest that the vicariousness of my tryst with Dubrovnik would be best attained if you devour what Dubrovnik have to offer not in words but in pictures. Thus, my penchant for a Photo story rather than a verbose account. But I suppose a little prologue is apropos-

Late at night, around 10, with only 2% charge left in my mobile, I decided to walk the distance to my accommodation once I got off the bus. I memorised the navigation, well sort of, keeping in mind the alleys and turns. Naturally, I skipped a couple of turns and then I entered the old city from the other end of the city wall. I am glad that I didn't memorised the map to perfection.

[ALL ABOUT JETTIES] Jettison your woes at this little jetty, sit and relax and embrace the splash. There is a bench (next pic). This was my first photograph of Dubrovnik.

[ALL ABOUT JETTIES] Like I said, there are benches and the view is endearing.

[ALL ABOUT JETTIES] Speaking of jetties, here is another one. This is my favourite spot perfectly nestled between two architectural structures that serve as key spots for Game of Thrones

While we are outside of the city wall gallivanting on the streets seems like a suitable choice. Consider the streets to be a teaser to what lies where they lead to.

This was my first morning at Dubrovnik. I picked the farthest gate and went straight ahead.

How it looks from outside. If you look closely at Episode 2 of Season 8 of GOT you can see that hill and a few of these houses in the backdrop in a scene that features Cersei and Qyburn.

[THE SUNSET ARC] Another day another sunset. Only this time I didn't go too far. Found a sweet spot right outside the gate.

[ GOT PLOTS ] Tyrion and Lord Varys had a conversation up there. And you can have as well. You can walk around the walls for some spectacular views (see next pic)

[AN INSIDE STORY] My everyday routine included countless walks in those streets. That's it. I couldn't think of anything else.

[THE FAREWELL ACT] Truth be told, I was not mentally prepared to leave Dubrovnik. So I ate a lot. Also I came to know that day that this street was used as a shooting location for Star Wars: The Last Jedi.

[THE FAREWELL ACT] These streets at night feels like from another dimension. This was my last photograph of Dubrovnik.

I guess it might be clear by now that why I would visit Dubrovnik at every opportunity that I get for eternity. Initially I planned to stay for 4 days but I couldn't resist the pull and so I extended my stay for another 2 days and rescheduled my flight.
