Basic information

For over a thousand years now the people of Dubrovnik have been celebrating the Feast of St. Blasius. It is the day on which the doors of the City are thrown wide open. In honour of St. Blasius, and the Day of the City of Dubrovnik, numerous cultural, entertainment, musical and sporting events are held. The city is specially decorated and lit, and the procession of inhabitants from around the city attracts much attention with the rich original folk costumes. Following the flight of white doves our eyes reach the heavens, reminding us of the priceless values of freedom. On that day the mass is celebrated in the church of St. Blasius, from which a festive procession starts its passage through the streets of the old city. The festivity of the Dubrovnik patron, a day which reminds us that the saint protecting Dubrovnik in the palm of his hand eternally watches over its freedom, was placed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2009.
