One of the first things we did when we arrived in Dubrovnik was to take in the panoramic view from the top of Srd Hill. I’m not a fan of cable cars but the three minute ride to the top was very quick and certainly worth it.
Looking down on the city it is hard to imagine that in the 1991 war, 80% of the buildings and 75% of the roof tops were destroyed. It took eight and half years for the restoration which was organised by UNESCO who had awarded the city world heritage status in 1979.
For those among you who are feeling adventurous, there is a path from the top that meanders back into the old city, a ninety minute walk.
