Sea captain and hobby Egyptologist from Dubrovnik has claimed that this ancient city houses pyramids that could become a new tourist attraction.
Perio Metkovic is convinced that the Lapad area in Dubrovnik lies over pyramids built by Illiryans, tribes that inhabited the area in antiquity.
"The outlines of large stone blocks that, unlike the Egyptians, are laid at an angle rather than horizontally, testify to the legacy of the Iliryan culture," Metkovic said.
Metkovic - who has spent 15 years studying the pyramids in Giza on the outskirts of Cairo and in the Sahara as a hobby - says that the conical structure of the Petko hill in Dubrovnik points to a presence of a pyramid. Similar terrain in the surrounding area indicates that this could be one in a series.
The regularly laid out stones imply that human hand must have been involved in their construction.
In addition to sailing on foreign tankers, Metkovic owns a tourist agency "Ultra agent," through which he hopes to start offering guided tours of the interesting historical area in the near future.
