Lens-Artists PC #65 – Pick a Place (09/30/2019)

This week, Tina asks us to pick a place.

I pick Dubrovnik, Croatia for this theme. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites. We were there two weeks ago.

With the large outer walls, narrow streets of the Old town and fortifications, the old town of Dubrovnik was the perfect place for the Game of Thorns :King’s Landing. 

The film has attracted tons of tourists to the old town. To feel like you have a role in the “King’s Landing”, you can pay $30 to walk on the wall.

The famous wall:

Our local tour guide addressed the problems of managing the trash. The dragon below is sending out some serious messages through the wall.

Last year, 749,000 people disembarked from 539 cruise ships that moored in Dubrovnik’s harbor, and more than 4.2 million people have spent at least one night in Dubrovnik in 2018.

The old town is situated by the “blue on blue” Adriatic Sea, and the sky is as blue as the sea. The contrast of the blue sea/sky and red roofs is amazingly beautiful from every angle. It’s also unique because the fame of the old town is much associated with the TV series–“Game of Thrones”. Thus, I chose Dubrovnik’s wall city for this week’s theme. 

Tina encourages us to share “a place that holds special memories. It may have been a small town, a big city, or even better, an entire country….” Be sure to visit Tina’s inspiring “Pick a Place”.

As always Tina, Patti, Ann-Christine, and I hope you’ll join us this week. Remember to tag your response Lens-Artists and to link it to Tina’s original post, rather than the reader version, to make sure we can all find you.

Stay tuned for Patti (pilotfishblog) Photo Challenge on October 5th.

    • I appreciate so much of your comment. So good to know that you have three cities in Pakistan declared WHS. Dubrovnik got the fame due to the TV Series. The wall was impressive and views from the distance are much better. Happy to share these with you, my friend. 🙂
      I looked up Lahore in the Punjab via Google search. Magnificent architecture and beautiful building of the university. Thank you so much, Anjum.

  4. I would pay to walk that wall – and it is interesting that there is a trash problem – we just heard a lot of places here in the states will have more trash problems because china is no longer buying our recycled goods.

    and because I did watch GOT finally – I extra enjoyed your post! Such a good show and such a gorgeous place to film it – your photos are wonderful Amy – and how nice this must have been to feel in person
