What sort of masonry is this? It looks too orderly to be called jointed, yet uneven to be called isodomic. Is this the vernacular style of Dubrovnik, the region or the era?




Great pics. The craftmanship is exemplary.
Dubrovnik is a "heavyweight".

Okey, here it goes - my short trip to Dubrovnik on 29.05.06 :)

Few pics of the croatian motorway in the CROATIAN MOTORWAYS II thread ;)

Woohoo! :colgate:










Two wierd guys on the street, and...on the - wall :colgate:








Climbing up baby! Srd, here i come!


And let me tell you something, don't climb up, like I did it - had 2 backpacks, it was 30c, and all the way you think your almost there...I almost died! :colgate:
I actually climbed up coz I didn't have the money for the city walls (50kn)
so this fabulous idea came to my mind...hehe...but it was worth the climbing
and dying :) The city walls were packed, and up there I was all alone!

:)


You're a big fella!
















:cheers:

So I made it, and that's what you see up there :)


Bosnia and Hercegovna on the other side...






Remember the cross? :)


That's the view...kinda strange panorama :colgate:


Clouds just over my head :scouserd:


Down in the city again...




Relexing on the square, after a great day...flight to Zagreb ahead of me...


Harbour in the evening sun...

Dubrovnik is a "heavyweight".
Im sure its termed "Dalmatian". It is a common building style on this length of the Croatian coast. Its also noticable in the coastal hinterland as well ..... as far into neighbouring Hercegovina. Noticable in cities like Mostar, etc.

Its use of common stone which is abundant in the region.

BTW - Cole, great photo report. :eek:kay:

Svaka cast za fotke. Definitivno jedan od najljepsih gradova na Jadranu.
