A photo exhibition entitled “From Illyria to Elsinore” by British artist Bari Goddard opened in the atrium of the Sponza Palace in Dubrovnik last night. The exhibition, which is being held as part of the Midsummer Scene, showcases images from 'Hamlet' and 'Twelfth Night' as well as scenes of Dubrovnik inspired by the plays of Marin Drzic.
The director of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, Romana Vlašić, commented that Dubrovnik and the UK are traditionally connected and that the majority of tourists in the city are from Great Britain. “Around a fifth of all tourists in Dubrovnik are from the UK and this cultural connection between Bari Goddard and the Midsummer Festival in Dubrovnik is another great bonus for Dubrovnik,” commented Vlašić.
The Honorary Consul of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the editor of The Dubrovnik Times, Mark Thomas, had the honor of opening the exhibition which will remain open in Sponza Palace until July 7th.
