  1. Wow, that’s a really romantic picture – love the ambiance, I guess today the Stradun is packet with little chance of strolling along and only meeting a handful of people 😀

  2. What caught my eye was the difference in the pavement. The way the center is different reminded me that you once told me there was a water channel there. Do you know when the current stones were placed?

    • The present look of the limestone, polished by use, was put down after the 1667 earthquake. Originally the Stradun was paved in 1468.

    • The Stradun has changed many times over the years. At one time it was water and was filled in and became the main promenade. During the winter months it is my favorite part of the old town. Next visit I make to Orebic, I will contact you and we can meet for a ‘kava.’

  3. Stumbled across you in search of history of Debrovnik and Bozanka (My grandmothers name) for the book I’m writing. Would love to communicate. My heart longs to visit this beautiful place.
