Ellie Marr Dubrovnik can get very busy during the summer months but one of the best festivals St Blaise Day takes place out of season on the week preceding the 3rd February. St Blaise is Dubrovnik's patron saint and nearly all of Dubrovnik turn out to help celebrate this day. Villagers from the region flock to Dubrovnik and display their local culture with colourful costumes and folk dances. During high season don't miss the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, which keeps the Old Town young every summer for the months of July and August. Concerts of all sorts take place early every night in venues around town while every place with a stage hosts a play or two.

Dubrovnik Holidays

Be prepared to be enchanted by this well-preserved baroque town, dominated by its encircling walls, lying on the picturesque Dalmatian coast. Amble along the tightly packed narrow streets of the Old Town and spend time in the grand Dominican Monastery admiring its collection of fine paintings. Stroll along the main thoroughfare, the Stradun, by day and then join the nightly promenade where people come to see and be seen. Make sure you try the fresh seafood, virtually straight from the boat, take in a concert in the courtyard of the Rector's Palace or join the locals in one of the many buzzing bars.

About Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik, often referred to as the 'Pearl of the Adriatic', lies on the picturesque Dalmatian coast and offers an eclectic mix of historical buildings, ancient traditions and modern café culture. Although severely damaged by an earthquake in 1667, Dubrovnik managed to preserve its beautiful Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches, monasteries, palaces and fountains.

Despite further damage in the 1990s by armed conflict, it is now the focus of a major restoration programme coordinated by UNESCO. Visit the Franciscan Monastery with its historic 15th century apothecary or the Dominican monastery, which houses paintings from the Dubrovnik school of art. Stroll along the cobbled paths and promenades and soak up the local atmosphere in one of the city's many pavement cafes.
