Although the utmost care has been taken to protect the historic facades and streets of Dubrovnik with the construction of the Robin Hood sets in Dubrovnik there has still been an inexcusable devastation.
Three square stone pillars that have stood at the end of the Siroka Street in the centre of the city have been removed to make way for filming and all that is left are three concrete scars. Siroka Street, or Wide Street in English, is one of the side streets off the Strdaun and the three stone pillars are recognisable landmarks, we can presume that this is a temporary measure, but it is still disturbing to see ancient sights removed for the sake of a movie.
