Dubrovnik, Croatia

At Automattic we are encouraged to consider a team switch from time to time. Team switches help to bring fresh perspective to different projects the company is working on and provide opportunities to learn new skills. I decided to take advantage of this chance and joined team Amber in the middle of October. The timing could not be better, only a few days later I was invited to join my new team mates in Dubrovnik to work on get.blog – domain name registrar for .blog domains.

Old Town of Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik is one of the most exciting tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea area. It is very well preserved despite the fact that city’s ancient stone walls and fortifications were constructed during the 14th and 15th centuries. There is also a beautiful worth seeing medieval port. Old town is now the focus of a major restoration programme co-ordinated by UNESCO. Finally, a 2 km long walk along Dubrovnik’s famous city walls is a unique and wonderful experience and a must-do for everyone visiting this place.

Game of Thrones

It’s worth mentioning that Dubrovnik has also been a popular filming location for the fictional city of King’s Landing in the HBO television series, Game of Thrones. Check out the following video if you want to find out more.
