Dubrovnik

Launching Dubrovnik Winter Festival and its extensive and versatile program, Dubrovnik - the city of festivals and festive events - will combine fun, culture, enjoyment, gastronomy and art on the most attractive stages in the City and its surrounding areas. The unique heritage sites and venues, such as Peskarija, Stradun, Pile and Lazareti, will be enlivened by their new image and holiday illumination. The festival offers innumerable reasons for gatherings. Bring your children to the skating rink, or to the Christmas Tale show, warm yourselves with mulled wine and enjoy Croatian style doughnuts in front of the Cathedral, or dance in the tent by Orlando’s Column. Have fun at the theatre, visit galleries and museums, and learn how to make Dubrovnik’s traditional sweet delicacies.

The program of Dubrovnik’s winter festival – Advent in the City – begins with the lighting of the first Advent candle.The uniqueness of Dubrovnik is also visible during the month of giving. This year’s Christmas market will be set up on the most beautiful street in Dubrovnik, Stradun, where traditional craftsmen will present their handicrafts, Christmas decorations, and traditional Christmas cakes and sweets will be offered as well. Try to sing the traditional holiday songs, the Dubrovnik kolenda (carols), which have been sung on Christmas Eve and on New Year’s Eve since olden times, offering congratulations and wishing everyone a joyful holiday!
