The Dubrovnik old town at night is as beautiful as it is during the day.
This beautiful building is a harmonious mixture of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements. The original palace was modeled after the Roman imperial palace, with some influences from Venetian palaces. There were two gun powder explosions in the 15th century and an earthquake in the 17th century which destroyed part of the palace. The existing building was rebuilt at the end of the 17th century.
Further stroll brought us to the nearby beautiful Luza square where we found the Church of St. Blaise, who is Dubrovnik’s patron saint. St. Blaise was also the protector of the Independent Republic of Ragusa. The church is easily recognizable by the statue of the city’s patron, St. Blaise on its top! This 18th century Baroque church is one of the most recognizable Dubrovnik attractions.
This restaurant really looked nice and it was blissful just to sit here and have alfresco dinning while gazing at the beautiful buildings nearby with the nights on.
When we reached our hotel. it was already late and we collapsed onto the comfortable seats by the pool while others opted for an evening swim.
We were happy that we were given another fine and blissful day and an enjoyable evening!
