Photographer's Note

It is while driving on the cornice road that I started to understand.
While seeing bays and bays, by looking at the houses bordered with cypress to go down in cascade towards the turquoise sea, by seeing islands spread out under the caresses of the sun. The south of Dalmatie resembles to Italy, to Greece, to the Riviera.
With exception, she did not know the devastations of real promotion. II still today this environment of garden of Eden reigns there, which attracted formerly the Americans on the circumferences of the Mediterranean. We thinks that it is possible to live there like millionaires for three pounds six pennies, in the luxury, calms it and the pleasure of a table of Matisse...

Suddenly, Dubrovnik emerged behind the solid mass of Dinara. Its ramparts were drawn up on the floods, bathed by gilded reflections. I descended now an astonishing way of paradise, curving between the palm trees and the rich houses, and I had the glance rivetted on this city, as beautiful and majestic as five hundred years ago, when it scintillated under the eyes of the Turkish caravaneers...

In a few years, the "Queen of Balkans" will look like Venice or Montmartre, there will be nothing any more to draw some. By then, it remains oldest and the most beautiful city of the world.

Inspired of the site "www.amb-croatie.fr/actualites/dubrovnik_48h.htm"
