#1028: Portrait of a City 8

IMG_7013 small

Dubrovnik is a martyr to its success as a stop-off for cruise ships; in summer, it’s population of 42,000 can swell to double that size as tourists from up to five ships disembark for a visit. The ships are huge. Until you have been next to one in a small boat, you really cannot appreciate the scale of them…

* Tip for a trip to Dubrovnik. Get there early. The sites, including the stunning city walls, open from 8am; floating visitors don’t start invading until at least an hour later!
