What's on in Dubrovnik?
Carnival is one of the biggest annual events in Dubrovnik. It's a three-day festival that takes place three days before Ash Wednesday. Book your flights to Dubrovnik if you want to attend, but don’t arrive at Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) without your costumes. The locals go all out with masquerade balls, street parties and entertainment on Stradun, the main street of Duubrovnik.
Festival of St. Blaise
St. Blaise is Dubrovnik's patron saint, and a festival is thrown in his honour each year in February. Fly into Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) and witness 10 days of celebrations that pay tribute to this local saint. The festival starts on 2 February, with the release of two white doves. Locals then don traditional Croatian dress, and restaurants dish up warming winter fare. February is one of the tourist low seasons in Croatia, so those wanting to attend may be able to secure cheap flights to Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik Summer Festival
Scooped up cheap flights to Dubrovnik for August travel? Don't miss out on the Dubrovnik Summer Festival. For 15 days, this festival sees open-air concerts happen at venues across the city. You can watch performances of theatre, opera, music and dance.
From December until early January, Dubrovnik becomes a Christmas wonderland. The annual Winter Festival includes a beautiful Christmas market teeming with stalls selling traditional sweets and drinks, plus carols and events for kids with a guest appearance by Santa. Foodies buying flights to Dubrovnik over this period should keep an eye out for the traditional Dalmatian Christmas dish bakalar, a filling Croatian cod stew.
How much time should I spend in Dubrovnik?
Dubrovnik is a fantastic city to base yourself to explore Croatia and neighbouring countries. If you want a relaxed trip, give yourself one to two weeks in the city. It will allow you enough time to explore Old Town, see all the Game of Thrones filming locations and enjoy a few island-hopping adventures. However, if your flights to Dubrovnik fall over the low season (September to April), you may struggle to find ferries operating to all the neighbouring islands. For the few ferry routes that do stay open, you might find most restaurants and attractions closed until the summer months (June to August(. If you want to see more of Croatia, hire a car at Dubrovnik Airport (DBV). You can visit the smaller towns and go on day trips to Montenegro and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
What are Dubrovnik's most famous landmarks and monuments?
The Old City Walls
The Old City Walls have been cemented in pop culture history thanks to their starring role in Game of Thrones. Since the launch of the TV series, fans from around the world buy flights to Dubrovnik to walk along the formidable walls and immerse themselves in the world of Westeros. The city has experienced such an influx in travellers arriving on flights to Dubrovnik that there are now Game of Thrones walking tours and vendors selling all kinds of memorabilia in Old Town. Some of the top filming locations along the wall include the Minceta Tower, the Bokar Tower, Pile Gate and the view of Fort Lovrijenac in the distance.
Located outside of the Old City, Fort Lovrijenac is one of Croatia's most important fortresses. It even protected the city from would-be Venetian invaders in the 11th century. A ticket to walk on top of the Old Walls usually includes access to the fortress as well. If you’re buying return flights to Dubrovnik in August, the fortress is used as a venue for the city's popular Summer Festival.
Dubrovnik Cable Car
One of the best things to do in Dubrovnik is to take the 4-minute cable car ride up to Mount Srd. Once you get to the top, you can see as far away as 50 kilometres on a clear day. It's a great spot to get panoramic pictures of the city. If you get hungry, there's a restaurant (reservations are essential if your tickets to Dubrovnik are for the busy summer months) as well as a traditional coin-minting blacksmith if you're shopping for souvenirs.
If you have extra time in your Dubvrobik itinerary, take a ferry over to Lokrum Island. It's another filming location for Game of Thrones and has intriguing attractions for history lovers with airfare to Dubrovnik. Head to the Fort Royal Castle (constructed by Napoleon), go scuba diving in the inland salt lake, or visit the 11th-century Benedictine Monastery. For an unusual way to get to the island, you can skip and ferry and take a sea kayak if the ocean is calm.
