Dubrovnik and Zagreb, a casual pictorial

16 MARCH 2020

The pearl of the Adriatic, Dubrovnik is indeed one of the most beautiful destinations in the Mediteranean region. Much of the city is within the perimeter of its ramparts where every path is worth the exploration. At night, the sights become majestic and mythical. In contrast, Zagreb was historically oriented toward the Austro-Hungarian empire and its architecture strongly reflects that influence.

There must be a thousand archways in Dubrovnik, each opening onto new discoveries. At night, the lighting of the city is outstanding, rendering new visions of the city.

The soft color of the stones further enhance the visual impact of the building features. Everything seems to be in perfect balance.

Zagreb

The capital of Croatia, once a part of the Austrian empire is a little of Budapest and a little of Vienna, both in architecture and gastronomy.

Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia, then part of the Austrian Empire. Tesla’s name equates electricity as he invented so many devices and motors. His name, lost in time, gained star recognition when Elon Musk named his electric car company “Tesla Motors”, now known simply as “Tesla, Inc.”
