We wake up very early in the morning and and went out to the Old City of Dubrovnik at 4:30 am! The street full people last night was now so silent and peaceful. The city was still sleeping...
There were many restaurants on this street and lots of people enjoying dinner last night, but now, there were no single person on the street.
No people on this street, too... Only cats ran across in front of us. Yep, Dubrovnik in the early morning was a cat city :)
Silence also hung over the Dubrovnik Port. Even here, we encountered only cats cautiously moving in shadow. It looked very different from daytime when the city is full of tourists. Actually, I really liked Dubrovnik in this early morning (before the sunrise). There were only us and cats (and a few tourists) moving in the city, and it was very very quiet. It was so quiet that we even talked in whispers.
But, we actually passed by some young tourist people on Placa street in the early morning. We thought there would be few people, so a bit disappointed, to be honest... It seemed like they just came back from a Night Club located just behind the City Walls near Revelin Fort.
Personally, I think Night Club doesn't fit to the Old City of Dubrovnik, but on the other hand, that means people in all ages can enjoy Dubrovnik.
The surface of the Placa street is very slippery! I'm not sure, but maybe because of people walking on the street over centuries and polishing the stones. Sounds very romantic, isn't it?! Anyway, the street looks as if it was wet, but actually, it wasn't. Lights in the city reflected on the glassy road and created a fantastic view :)
Just before 5:00am, all the lights in the city were turned off. But, by that time, the sky is already bright and daybreak had arrived. Gradually, people in Dubrovnik started cleaning streets, small trucks were carrying drink and food to prepare for welcoming tourists.
