The wonderment of visiting famous tourist cities was fading, and I thought it might be different to visit Dubrovnik old town, as there are very few intact medieval walled cities remaining. Visually it was all I expected with narrow lanes and dramatic fortifications, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it was still a living city with washing strewn across the narrow lanes and the locals scurrying in and out of their houses. During the day, it was packed full of tourists like me, but then in the early morning and evening most visitors vanished, and a peaceful ambience descended on the town. I have expanded my impressions and provided an illustrated report including maps and images at http://www.artphototravel.net/europe/dubrovnik-town-croatia/
