Three Perfect Days: Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is on the Cover of the July Edition of United Airlines' Hemispheres Magazine

‘Environment shapes the spirit,’ I write in my notebook on my last night in Dubrovnik – and I’m pretty sure it’s not just the wine talking. Set along an island-laced stretch of the Adriatic Sea, with the soaring Dinaric Alps as a backdrop and the cinematic Old Town at the center of it all, this Croatian city hit the jackpot in terms of physical appeal. That perhaps explains why, in spite of all manner of historical destruction—a 17th-century earthquake, Cold War Communist oppression, the Balkan Wars of the 1990s—the vibe among the 40,000 people who live here bursts with good humor, hope and resilience, a sense of belonging. Whether you’re gazing down from the City Walls, imagining flying overhead on a Game of Thrones dragon, or looking back from an island-bound motorboat, it’s hard to imagine being any other way in a place like this.

These are the words written by for Hemispheres, United Airlines Magazine.
