    Dubrovnik – a brief overview

    Once known as the Republic of Ragusa, Dubrovnik is a city that’s hard not to fall in love with. Its UNESCO-listed Old Town is a soothing combination of honey-coloured stone and terracotta tiles, and boasts a magnificent set of 13th-century city walls as well as some of the most spectacular ecclesiastical architecture in Europe.

    Then there’s the dramatically beautiful coastline that surrounds it, with golden sandy beaches just minutes from the city centre, and the wonderful old harbour where you can charter motorboats and island hopping begins. Add delicious local seafood and you’ve got the recipe for a perfect weekend away.

    Climate & best time to visit Croatia

    Croatia has a varied climate, with continental climate conditions inland and Mediterranean influence on the Adriatic coast. Peak season is July – August, with temperatures in the high 20s or in the 30s in places like Split, but you can expect plenty of sunshine from roughly May to October on the coast, and the shoulder seasons (May-June and September) are among the best times to visit Croatia. Inland is also hot in the summer but can be bitterly cold in the winter with sub-zero temperatures and heavy snowfall. Winter on the coast is milder but can be quite rainy.

    Shopping in Dubrovnik

    Key Areas

    Souvenirs certainly aren’t hard to come by in Dubrovnik, with tourist shops on almost every corner in the Old Town. Unique crafts are harder to find however, with Dubrovačka Kuća near Ploče Gate among the few to stock Croatian wine and truffle oil. The warren of streets around the Ploče Gate is also the place to look for designer buys, with Maxmara and a cool boutique named Maria Concept Store among the highlights. Head to Zlatarska for pieces by up-and-coming local names such as Modni Kantun.

    Markets

    The street market on Gunduličeva Poljana is the main source of alfresco retail therapy and sells everything from fresh vegetables to handmade lace.

    Shopping Centres

    DOC (Ulica Kralja Tomislava 7) is the largest and most popular of Dubrovnik’s malls and hosts a wide range of international chains, among them Miss Selfridge. The smaller Mercante (Vukovarska 24) is also worth a visit.
