Cathedral of the Assumption, Dubrovnik

Interesting
The ornate exterior decoration (columns, cornices, pediments, statues and dome) of this early 18C Baroque cathedral is in striking contrast with the simple interior, adorned with huge Baroque altarpieces. In the chancel is a polyptych of the Assumption of the Virgin, attributed to Titian. The highpoint of the visit is however the treasure, home to the famous reliquaries of St Blaise (12C) an attractive Madonna, attributed to Raphael and a Romanesque-Byzantine icon of the Virgin and Child (13C).

Dubrovnik, the pearl of the Adriatic

Dubrovnik is one of the world’s most stunning cultural jewels. Clinging to a rock, encased by a girdle of ramparts and lapped by a turquoise sea, Croatia’s famous town is fully worthy of its title “pearl of the Adriatic”. Over one thousand years old, this stone oasis first appeals by its architectural harmony. Yet Dubrovnik is far from frozen in the past. In summertime, it is particularly lively and dotted with terraces from which the visitor can observe the unending fresco of life in the city.
