A colorful boat scene in the Pearl of the Adriatic | Dubrovnik, Croatia

A colorful boat scene in the Pearl of the Adriatic | Dubrovnik, Croatia

During our walk around the walls of Dubrovnik, I noticed that old-style boat. I realized that it perfectly fits the medieval landscape. Although it appeared to be a touristic boat, that didn’t decrease the charm of the scene. So I pointed the camera with zoom lens to that direction and I shot this photo, which reminds me more of some renaissance painting rather than a picture from a modern Croatian city.

City Wall | Split, Croatia

City Wall | Split, Croatia

Patience is a valuable quality, especially for photographers. I say it because taking this particular photo was a real challenge – groups of people kept on entering and leaving, or just standing in front of the small souvenir shop behind the gate. Nevertheless, we had plenty of time and besides – it was a nice, warm evening. The right moment finally came and I took my photo, trying to capture the ancient atmosphere.

Rector’s Palace | Dubrovnik, Croatia

Rector’s Palace | Dubrovnik, Croatia

Daria fell in love with the facade of the building, which skilfully unites the architectural styles of the Gothic, Baroque and the Renaissance era. I used the deserted streets of Dubrovnik in the early morning hours to capture the Rector’s Palace in a way it might have been resting peacefully on the shiny pavement back in its days in the 16th century.

Dubrovnik at night | Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik at night | Dubrovnik, Croatia

To be precise, the title should read: Dubrovnik in the very early morning because this picture was taken at exactly 4:58 am on a morning during the summer. Even at that hour of the day, you meet quite a few tourists on their way into another eventful day of their holiday. This is probably due to the high number of cruise ships which stop in the harbor of Dubrovnik.

Diocletian’s Palace Ruins early in the morning | Split, Croatia

Diocletian’s Palace Ruins early in the morning | Split, Croatia

This photo was taken very (very) early in the morning, but 4 o’clock seemed to be the perfect time to capture the roman Diocletian’s palace in Split in the right light. The palace made from marble and limestone shines in a unique and unusual way during the light of the moon. This scene together with the clear night sky and a million twinkling stars was the perfect picture waiting to be taken.
