Many people think that the City of Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful in the world. Marin Šperanda, living in Dubrovnik, is amateur photographer, and his photos indicate in his very convincing poetic way the beauty of his native City. Dubrovnik is the unique city in the world lovingly called by its citizens simply as GRAD, i.e. the City.

Our friend the magarac (donkey). Another very widespread name for donkey in Dalmatian part of Croatia is tovar (tovar = load). Please, remember that the name of  Joe Magarac, a legendary American steel worker, is derived from Croatian name for donkey.
