  Harbor at Dubrovnik, Croatia
by karenincalifornia

Favorite thing: In the past, Dubrovnik was always a threat to Venice. When the city was liberated in 1358, its maritime fleet grew to such prominence that Dubrovnik became the most important port on the eastern Adriatic coast. Dubrovnik also became famous for its shipbuilding and had an excellent reputation for building seaworthy ships in the 16th century.

Fondest memory: This picture was taken in the famous Dubrovnik harbor. In the background is the island of Lokrum. I was told in 1986 that is has a naturist beach, but I didn't check it out in 2004. A very, very good VT friend once asked me if I had a picture of this beach. The answer is no, but if I did, I would have sent it.
