Dubrovnik Aerial Twilight
Travel photography print of Dubrovnik at night
Discover an incredible Dalmatian city (Croatia) with this signed luxury fine art photography print, delightfully captured for your visual pleasure.
This aerial coastal photo brings you one of the best views in Croatia in the form of fashionable, contemporary wall art. The Dubrovnik Castle can be seen standing high among the crowd of red roofs, looking out on the land it once ruled as the world slips into darkness. Walls reach out, hemming in parts of the city in powerful geometric lines. This story of a night in Dubrovnik is seen through the glowing lights of the city, and all framed by the dark blue of the Adriatic Sea.
Here is an image of Dubrovnik, Croatia as it should be seen: mysterious, proud, and ancient. Dubrovnik photos are typically focused on specific landmarks, particular facets, but Le Paulmier has captured the great tale of the city as a whole.
Dubrovnik history is long and storied. It was settled by Greek refugees in the 7th century. The ruins underneath the streets of this modern Croatian city reveal that it was ruled by the Byzantine empire a hundred years after its founding. That is when many of the iconic walls of Dubrovnik were built.
In the 14th century, the city found independence (as the Republic of Ragusa) and steady growth through Mediterranean trade. A trading crisis hit the area now called Croatia in the 17th century, and a devastating earthquake rocked the city during this time — killing 5,000 people and levelling much of the major public architecture.
The Austrian Empire gained control over the area until Communist revolution in the early 20th century. The breakup of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia in 1991 led to the founding of Croatia, and this gem of a city remains steadfast on its rocky shores as a testament to that history.
