Dubrovnik and the island of Lokrum (Croatia) were photographed in 1926 by the well-known German photographer Kurt Hielscher and last weekend by me. The photo is taken from a viewpoint some 450 meters upstairs from Pile Gate, a calm place when I was there. I guess most tourists dive into the city on arrival and do not take the effort to go up for a steep walk to Gornji Kono street near the Jadranska Cesta, the main road passing Dubrovnik.

Wow, so beautiful! Is it allowed to visit the small island?
Yes it is Lena, you can take a boat direct from the old harbor next to the city center. And it is worth it!
Perfect view and perfect alignment ! Bravo !
Thank you Oliver!!
