Dubrovnik Winter Festival
Launching its first Dubrovnik Winter Festival and its extensive and versatile programme, Dubrovnik - the city of festivals and festive events - will combine fun, culture, enjoyment, gastronomy and art on the most attractive stages in the City and its surrounding areas. The unique heritage and venues, such as Peskarija, Stradun, Pile and Lazareti, will be enlivened by their new image and holiday ilumination. The festival, which lasts about forty days, offers innumerable reasons for gathering together. Bring your children to the skating rink, or to the Christmas Tale show, warm yourselves up with mulled wine and enjoy doughnuts in front of the Cathedral, or dance in the tent by Orlando’s Column. Have fun together at the theatre, visit galleries and museums, and learn to make Dubrovnik’s traditional sweet delicacies.
Dear, fellow citizens and dear visitors, take part in our first winter festival. Let us fulfil together the vision of Dubrovnik, the city for all four seasons.
