A wonderful reminder of how Dubrovnik used to be in these lovely 1970s photos uploaded to YouTube on February 27, 2019.

Life on the Dalmatian coast has changed considerably in recent years. 

Visitors to Dubrovnik marvel at the old walls, the Game of Thrones locations and majestic Stradun, as cruise ship tourists come in their hundreds of thousands, and it is easy to forget that is was just 28 years ago that this UNESCO World Heritage was shelled during the regional conflict in the 1990s. 

But let’s go back a little further, to an era when Dubrovnik had trams and trains, and when the mass tourism of today was yet to arrive. 

A lovely collection of photos of the Pearl of the Adriatic in the 1970s was uploaded to YouTube yesterday – take a moment to enjoy Dubrovnik as it once was.
