Flowers, Flowers, Everywhere: A flower Girl Explores the Mediterranean, Part 2: “The Pearl of the Adriatic”

Next stop on my Mediterranean adventures: Dubrovnik, Croatia. The Dalmatian coast has a certain allure that encompasses the perfect mix of old-world history and palm-tree paradise—and let me tell you, I was entranced. Dubrovnik, Croatia, dubbed the “Pearl of the Adriatic,” is a city that truly glows in the sunlight with its white marble-lined streets and fanciful baroque architecture. Dubrovnik’s old city walls, complete with moat and drawbridge, enclose the historical maritime city. No longer full of water to keep out invaders, the moat may seem empty to some—but to this flower girl, it’s now much more full of beauty in its modernity. What could be lovelier in a dry moat than a landscaped garden? Surrounding the city walls and scattered among its white marble city, exotic flora abound in this once war-driven gem on the Adriatic Sea.
