The ancient city of Dubrovnik began as a refugee center in the 7th century for those fleeing the Barbadians. A Catholic city, it was surrounded by Islamic and Orthodox people. The city came unto its own in the 13th century, hitting its peak in the 15th and 16th century. It was a crossroad for travel and trading with Genoa, Pisa, Venice, the Balkans, and the Ottoman Empire. Today, walking the streets, is like being back in those centuries. The walls remain and everywhere you look there is a spectacular view of the Adriatic Sea. Lord Byron called it ‘the Pearl of the Adriatic’. Bernard Shaw and Agatha Christi were impressed with its beauty. Your author cannot beat those kudos, it is a fabulous place.
The Last Request
She looked out at the placid, almost flat Adriatic Sea, wondering how many times merchants of old stood in this same spot, watching and waiting for their ships. Dubrovnik had an aura of history that reeked of stories untold. Maybe there was something to being centuries old after all.
