Lokrum, Croatia.

Lokrum  is an island in the Adriatic Sea 600 metres (1,969 feet) from the city of Dubrovnik, Croatia. According to legend, Richard the Lionheart was shipwrecked in 1192 after returning home from the crusades and was cast safely ashore on Lokrum. He pledged to build a church on the island but, at the plea of Dubrovnik citizens, the church was built on the nearby mainland instead. The island is now a popular destination with visitors to Dubrovnik.
