Croatia, or Hrvatska - as we call it

Here comes a card from my homeland, Croatia, or Hrvatska as we call it. I sent this card to myself ( funny thing, but I always do that during trips) during my school journey to Dalmatia, the southern part of Croatia.
Dubrovik is one of the most beautiful towns in Croatia and on the Adriatic so some call it "Pearl of the Adriatic". It is famous for its walled old part of town. A feature of Dubrovnik are its walls that run almost 2 kilometers around the city. The walls run from four to six meters thick on the landward side but are much thinner on the seaward side. The system of turrets and towers were intended to protect the vulnerable city. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites.

The city really impressed me. Beside crowded streets and amazing atmosphere, there are many thing to see and try. The view from the walls is just unforgetable! This is a photo that I took from there.
