  • Mm hmm.

  • You can't think about Dubrovnik without thinking about the city's impressive walls.

  • I'm gonna go meet Carmen, who is a tour guide here in Dubrovnik.

  • She's gonna tell me everything I need to know about these fortifications.

  • What do these walls mean for the city of Dubrovnik?

  • Everything.

  • Because today that is identity.

  • Off our city, you can walk around the city walls.

  • You can enjoy different views, different perspectives.

  • You can have amazing photos.

  • So it is something that we are really taking care off.

  • It's a great way to see the rest of the city as well from the wall.

  • So that's so what have we got over here?

  • So we have four extent.

  • Lawrence, there is an inscription.

  • It says freedom is not to be sold for all the gold in the world, Actually, and that is quite important for us even today, Because freedom and liberty, just our keywords here in the Bronek.

  • Even today, it can get a little bit busy up at the top.

  • So to get away from the crowds and to see a slightly different perspective of the walls, I'm gonna go kayaking and check them out from the water.

  • Hi.

  • Good morning.

  • Good morning.

  • How are you?

  • Great.

  • I'm Louise.

  • Looks nice to meet you.

  • Nice to meet you.

  • Feeling good?

  • I'm feeling great.

  • Good luck.

  • Thank you to the ocean video way a lot.

  • And I feel very small down here.

  • Suddenly.

  • Appreciate quite how massive fortresses, these walls.

  • I mean, there are almost 500 years old on board.

  • The main reason why they build them was the big waves in the winter waves.

  • Do you believe that you would think is because of the enemy?

  • Yeah.

  • The waves get over 10 m high.

  • Do you think this is the best way to see the city walls?

  • I think that this is the best way.

  • Yeah, Yeah.

  • Walking on the walls is a great way to see Dubrovnik, to check out the views over the ocean and get a sense of the hustle and bustle of the city itself.

  • But I'm really, really glad that I got to come down and see the city walls from the water, get away from the crowds and get a sense of both sides of the city.

  • It almost feels like you're inside the history of the walls itself.

Mm hmm.
