Dubrovnik marks Earth Hour 2017

By  Mark Thomas Mar 26, 2017

Darkness came to the historic city centre of Dubrovnik last night as the city marked Earth Hour. The iconic Dubrovnik city walls which normally glow and surround the city stood dark for an hour from 8.30pm last night.

Dubrovnik joined this global initiative is organised annually by the WWF and aims to encourage individuals, communities, households and businesses to turn off their non-essential lights for one hour, from 8:30 to 9:30 p.m, as a symbol for their commitment to the planet.

Croatia has always been a part of this action and last year the country turned the lights off in 68 cities: landmarks such as Zagreb Cathedral, Dubrovnik city walls, the Pula Colosseum and the Split Diocletian’s palace were just some of the attractions that drowned into darkness.
