Why not stroll through the many beautiful and meandering streets in Dubrovnik with your camera to capture the hustle and bustle of daily life. Paved with limestone, the pedestrianised main street, Stradun, is lined with shops and restaurants, so this is the ideal time to independently practise your documentary style photography and see the city light up at night.
