Bird’s Eye View… Part 7

IMG_2224.jpg
The Croatians decided the walled city of Dubrovnik which is a Unesco World Heritage Site needed more defenses so thankfully they had built a fort on the top of the hill behind the city, this ultimately proved to be a very wise move as the City did not fall when besieged by the Yugoslav Peoples Army (JNA) during the 1991 conflict, and could well have acted as a tuning point in the conflict. The view shows the walled city and harbour below the hill fort and demonstrates the strategic position perfectly.
