In summer Dubrovnik has hot long days and warm short nights, however, in October the weather is much colder so you should pack some warm clothes too.
Those who seek paradise on Earth must come to Dubrovnik
— George Bernard Shaw
A fusion of medieval and Mediterranean influences creates a captivating blend, with majestic stone fortresses emerging from the shimmering waters of the Adriatic Sea – a perfect description of the city of Dubrovnik.
Historically, Dubrovnik stood as a City-Republic, ranking among the Mediterranean’s most famous cultural and economic hubs, sharing the spotlight with Venice. In more recent times, it has evolved into a center of modern cultural and tourist events. Dubrovnik now hosts a multitude of summer festivals, showcasing top-notch musical and theatrical performances on an international scale. These values have turned Dubrovnik into a place that offers a rich selection of various experiences and excitement, but also a complete holiday in a quiet and calming, mild Mediterranean ambiance and wonderful seaside landscapes.
The walls of Dubrovnik are a remarkably well-preserved complex of public and private, sacral and secular buildings representing all periods of the City’s history, beginning with its establishment in the 7th century. Since 1979 Dubrovnik has been in the register of UNESCO as a protected World heritage. Particular mention should be made of the city’s main street in the old historical center – Stradun, Rector’s Palace, St. Blaise’s Church, Cathedral, three large monasteries, Customs Office, and the City Hall.
The geographical position of this region is typically Mediterranean with mild and wet winters, and hot and humid summers (2,600 hours of sunshine on average). The average air temperature is 17° C and the summer sea temperature is 21° C. There are many sunny days during the winter months. The average summer air temperature is 25° C, made pleasant by the mild ‘maestral’ wind – a messenger of good weather, while the ‘bura’ and the ‘jugo’ generally blow during the colder months.
The coastline is beautiful, dotted with bays, beaches, steep cliffs, and many forested islands. There is a great variety of flora, predominantly cypress, pine, and olive trees, as well as vineyards, lemon, and orange plantations – together with aromatic herbs and flowers, including exotic plants such as palm trees, agave, and cactus, which create a special atmosphere. For nature enthusiasts, this region boasts an authentic Mediterranean terrain, while those fond of sailing will find themselves immersed in a wonderful sea and well-equipped marinas.
Dubrovnik is not only a fascinating place to explore in its own right but it makes a great base for day trips throughout southern Dalmatia. The Dubrovnik countryside is replete with small villages that retain their folklore traditions. Further down the coast is the resort of Cavtat. Lying at the tip of Croatia, Dubrovnik is close to Mostar in Bosnia-Hercegovina and Montenegro, which make great day tours. Offshore, lie some of the most beautiful islands in the Adriatic: Mljet, Lokrum, and Elaphiti Islands. Elaphiti Islands are true jewels of Dubrovnik archipelago. The chain of islands between the Pelješac peninsula and the Lapad peninsula used to be a favorite place for summer residences of the Dubrovnik aristocrats.
Dubrovnik has a well-deserved longstanding worldwide fame that has been lasting for decades and has just been recently amplified by becoming a Hollywood love child. A good chunk of Star Wars: Episode 8 and new DiCaprio’s Robin Hood was filmed on its charming and mysterious streets. But what really made it famous inside of the games industry and movie industry circles, is the city becoming one of the main settings for the shooting of award-winning Game of Thrones HBO TV series (King’s Landing). Take a walk on its monumental historical city walls and experience it for yourself.
