Statue of Marin Drzic, 1508-67, Croatian playwright and poet, outside the Rector's Palace in the Old Town, Dubrovnik, Croatia. Rubbing the nose of the statue is thought to bring good luck. The city developed as an important port in the 15th and 16th centuries and has had a multicultural history, allied to the Romans, Ostrogoths, Byzantines, Ancona, Hungary and the Ottomans. In 1979 the city was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Picture by Manuel Cohen
