Dubrovnik has always been a destination of choice during summer months. In bid to enjoy the sights and sounds of the city under less crowd, more and more travellers are visiting Dubrovnik during the winter months instead.
Dubrovnik Tourist Board has been organising complimentary city tours and folklore performances for the fourth year in a row so as to express their appreciation to travellers who make the trip off-season.
From 3rd November 2018 to 30th March 2019, a free city tour with an English-speaking guide will depart from the Tourist Information Centre on Brsalje 5, near the Pile Gate on every Saturday. On the “Winter Saturday Mornings in the City” tour, pre-registered guests will be able to spend 90 minutes exploring and discovering what lies inside of Dubrovnik’s medieval walls, such as the Onofrio Fountain, Sponza and Rector’s palaces as well as Stradun. The tour concludes at the open-air Luza square, followed by a performance of the traditional dances and songs by the local Lindo Folklore ensemble.
Come winter, Dubrovnik will be well connected to seven European destinations with direct flights to Frankfurt, London, Madrid, Rim, Barcelona, Warsaw and Istanbul in addition to the regular flights to Zagreb. The Tourist Board expects an increase in tourists from markets such as the USA, Japan and South Korea with the improvement in access. Tourists will also be in time for the Dubrovnik Winter Festival which offers a variety of music and entertainment programmes.
If you’re keen on the city tour, do remember to register with the Tourism Board a day in advance either through phone or e-mail. Visit the Tourist Board website for more information.
