Lapad, Dubrovnik

Lapad is situated on the peninsula below the hill Petka. Located 1 km southwest of the old city between Dubrovnik Boninovo area in the east, Batala in the north-east, Gruz Bay in the north and Babin Kuk and Cape Solitudo in the west. Originally Lapad was a part of the city where the aristocrats of  Dubrovnik, during the Republic of Dubrovnik, built their summerhouses.
Tourism development started the rapid development of Lapad, and consequently most of today's Dubrovnik hotels were built here. Lapad is devided into several settlements:
-Lapad Bay
-Babin Kuk
-St. Blaise's Hill
The most popular beach is Uvala where one can  find a restaurants and other facilities  that modern beach must have. The beach is sandy with shallow and warm sea pleasant for bathing and swimming. 

This would be a brief, official part of this post where I gave you some basic information about the part of Dubrovnik where I live. I've spent my whole life living in the same place in Lapad, below Petka hill only a few meters away from the Uvala Beach. I hope that pictures below this introduction will be able to convey, at least a little bit, all the beauty that I have the honor to enjoy every day. Sometimes I do think that I live in Paradise.
