Easter in Dubrovnik as You Have Never Seen It: Sretan Uskrs

April 12, 2020 – Easter in Dubrovnik as you have never quite seen it – a lonely Easter egg on Stradun.

Can you imagine how quickly the world will change if we humans stay caged up in our self-isolation homes for a few months more?

After just a couple of weeks of lockdown in China, the air pollution above the country improved visibly. A couple of weeks without tourism in Venice, and the waters became clear again. 

And in the Croatian symbol of overtourism – the Pearl of the Adriatic known as Dubrovnik aka Kings Landing, the rather unusual sight of grass growing around its polished stone floor. 

Easter in Dubrovnik is a very important time for the city and its people, but this year – as elsewhere in the world – things are a little different. 


There are no tourists, and very little is open. But just because there are very few people, that does not mean that Dubrovnik cannot celebrate its ancient traditions for this time of year. 

Dubrovnik this morning through the talented lens of Marko Novak, where a lone Easter eff lies lazily among the stone and the grass in the April sun on Stradun, the most exclusive street in the whole country, with Dubrovnik Cathedral in the background. 

Superb shot, Sir!
