The famous wall of Dubrovnik is the ideal place to enjoy some incredible views high above the red slatted roofs of the UNESCO world heritage city. While I looked around, this unique skyline caught my eye immediately. To me, those towers and domes, whose outline pierce against the turquoise blue Mediterranean Sea is a unique sight and I doubt you will find this anywhere else in the world but in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik.

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.
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.
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.
