The Faces of Christianity: Travel Photo Contest Friday 16

Update: Sigh, no winner this week. I really hate it when this happens, but don’t worry I’ll let you all know where it is anyway.

Dubrovnik is a beautiful medieval city on the southern coast of Croatia. We visited for the day while we were staying in Kotor, Montenegro. Let’s see who can guess next weeks location correctly.
