Christmas in Dubrovnik

The holiday season is a great time to visit Dubrovnik. It is a time when the Old Town fills with locals gathering to celebrate and spread holiday cheer. A festive atmosphere abounds at the cafĂ© bars lining the Stradun and the city is dressed up with decorations and sparking lights. There are seasonal events such as small Christmas markets, concerts, carolers, and Christmas parties. The festivities begin on December 6th, which is recognized as St. Nicholas’s day, and continue on through the start of the New Year. Flights and accommodation are also very reasonably priced this time of year and the weather is almost certain to be much better than in most of Europe or North America.
