Dubrovnik Harbor View

Dubrovnik is a liberty port dear to the heart of any USS Little Rock sailor fortunate enough to have stopped there.  During the visits made by Little Rock, the city was part of Yugoslavia (now Croatia). Located on the Adriatic Sea coast Dubrovnik is now a bustling seaport with a population of about 43,000. Nicknamed the "Pearl of the Adriatic", and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, Dubrovnik has become one of the most prominent tourist spots in the Med.

Below are some photos of and comments about Dubrovnik that have been sent in by Little Rock shipmates, and derived from other source such as Little Rock Cruise books. Your comments and photos are welcomed.
