Posts Tagged ‘Dalmatian Coast’

After a 9 hour bus ride, we finally reached the Dalmatian coast. Though long, the drive through the mountains was beautiful, and the sunset over the mountains was impressive. At one point, we were all wondering if the bus driver knew where he was going, since we were driving along a barely-defined dirt path under a partially constructed bridge between two mountains. Everything turned out fine, as we eventually ended back up on a paved road. We passed through the strip of coast belonging to Bosnia, and made a quick stop in Neum, which I had visited 2 years ago with my boyfriend. It was already 10:00 at night (22:00 for you Europeans) when we reached our hotel in Mlini, just south of Dubrovnik itself, so we didn’t get to see the sights until the next day. However, we did get to sit on our balcony over the water and watch the moon set over the ocean horizon, which was a unique experience.

I took this panorama in the lovely city of Dubrovnik, Croatia, in July 2009. Dubrovnik is on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia on the Adriatic Sea. The old city is a walled fortress and you can walk around the entire city on top of its walls for a small fee. Though Croatia seemed like a less-frequented tourist spot from my American perspective, it was surprisingly expensive and quite busy. However, it was a truly amazing place to visit.
