From the Rooftops

Old Town Keyhole

Old Town Keyhole

One of the most interesting things you can do in Dubrovnik is to walk the wall around Old Town.  They charge a steep $20 to go up there and there is no shortage of takers.  It takes about 1.5 hours to complete the circle while enjoying great views of the area.  The Kayaks were photographed from just outside of Old Town.  The final five photos were taken at locations away from Old Town, several were from my hotel balcony.

  6. Some excellent pictures in this set.

    What I’m curious about is why the roofs all got replaced after the war. What caused damage just to the roofs and nothing else? Was it air burst shells or something? The buildings themselves all look fairly original with no obvious signs of being rebuilt so it seems odd with them having all new roofs.

    • They were replaced and the ones that are original have a brown color rather than orange. The buildings are very sturdy, so perhaps the roof got blown off and the walls remained.

      • Yes, I’ll have a google to try and find out what happened. It is a part of recent European history that I’m not really aware of.

  10. Love that Old Town Keyhole. Is that an accessible spot?


    June 5, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    • Chris, it is accessible from the wall. There were a few other holes like that, but this was the best one. The thing is, you have to be looking out for these opportunities. Otherwise, all it looks like is a hole in the wall.

      • Ron,

        Just curious as it’s a great shot, but I suppose you’re in the right frame of mind when looking for the next one.

  15. It seems that there is the child in all of us – how often we see children unable to resist climbing a walk – like the colourful photos

  18. your photos are always so stunning!

  19. What an amazing set of photos…gorgeous place. Am I being grumpy or does anyone else think this lock mania is just plain vandalism? It’s everywhere and ruining some of the best views and bridges…and throwing the thousands of keys in the water – not nice!

    • You are the first person to express a negative opinion about the locks. When I had photos of graffiti a lot of people had bad things to say about the practice. In most cases the railings are low so locks are out of view. Even so, once there is a mesh fence like the one in the photo, the view has been ruined anyway.

  20. Thank you for liking “Beautiful and Bizarre Butterflies and Moths.” There is a nice variety of perspectives in this photo gallery ranging from the narrow “hole in the wall” view of “Old Town Keyhole” to the panoramic views of photos such as “The Fort” and “Dubrovnik Old Town.” The balcony shots are interesting too.

    I was reading some of the previous comments on this post, and I think you did a great job of looking for opportunities to create memorable photographs in this photo gallery. Well done! 🙂

      June 13, 2014 at 10:14 pm

  21. I look forward to seeing more of your travel photos. 🙂
