With the new Dubrovnik bikini law coming into effect yesterday The Dubrovnik Times took to the streets to discover what tourists to our city think about the new regulations.
If you are now caught “wearing swimwear or inappropriately uncovered” on the public streets of the city you will have to pay a fine of 1,000 Kunas, or around 134 Euros. This so called “bikini ban” will mean all visitors to the city centre will have to cover up or pay up. Bare-chested men and bikini clad women are a thing of the past as a total of fifteen security guards will patrol the streets looking for flesh-baring law breakers.
Firstly had tourists even heard about this law and secondly what were their opinions?
We even managed to “catch” a young tourist, or maybe we should say offender, from Spain in her bikini top. When she found out from us about the new law her first reaction was “I can take it off if you want me to!” However after our short interview was finished the Spanish tourist did in fact choose to cover up with a T-shirt.
