Along the coast of the Adriatic Sea lives what now is called the “poskok,’ better known as the ‘Jumping Serpent’. These creatures are some five-feet long and to my understanding can jump some three feet in the air and leap some five-feet in any direction they wish, simply by aiming at whatever, wherever. But this didn’t happen by chance, this really and truly happened by necessity. And this is the tale you are about to hear, the ‘why,’ of it, how it came about. And to be quite honest, you will be the first to hear of it.
The poskok has a macabre-hissing tone to its dynamic language, a hissing that bellows out fear, and out of fear and inborn aggressiveness, its impulses create a neurological reaction that makes it leap and jump. Again, the why of this will come out in the tale! But it is always prudent to know the background of things, and so I am equipped to share it with you. In addition to its poisonous bite, it has quite the temper, and at times it can look no different than a log or branch by a tree, or alongside a lane or road, or within a dense forest laying next to rocks and decaying wood. And let us add to its natural abode in this narrative background: it prefers-if given a choice, the natural background of trunks of trees-to live amongst.
The more I ponder about it, the more I realized that this pearl of Adriatic is airing romance in a rather positive way. The town’s heritage leaves an ever lasting impression in your dubrovnik weddings album whether your photo is taken on the city walls with blue marine tranquility of the sea in the background or you just went for a photo on the ex-Armament square capturing the Old Port in the background, a classic for the local couples. And I must admit there is something rather sentimental when a newly wedded couple is being driven in Mr. Deranja’s red oldtimer on Stradun. And I am certain that they will cherish the moment meandering the Old Town’s streets even the wedding party going for a quick or two drinks in the local cafe bars
Then you should consider carefully if either these options is the best option for you. I have seen many couples choosing the St. Blaise Church and then changing this after they had visited Dubrovnik in summer because they felt it was just too busy in July and August.
They are both located on the main street in Dubrovnik and in the summer this is a very busy street. During the Dubrovnik Summer Festival there is a large chance that seating arrangements have been built up to allow for performances of all kinds.
So if you plan your wedding during the period of the festival: 10th of July until the 25th of August, then you should be aware that the city might build some sort of podium or area for spectators right at the door.
