Four years ago to this day Dubrovnik was covered in snow!

By  Jan 11, 2021

On this day exactly four years ago, Dubrovnik was covered with a fresh blanket of snow! Four years later and the sun is shining, the skies are blue and temperatures are in the mid-teens. However, on the 11th of January 2017 it was a different story, a winter story. The snow started falling early in the morning and continued for most of the day.

A thick cover of snow covered Dubrovnik for two days and needless to say the city, which is used to rather different weather conditions, almost completely stopped. Drivers abandoned cars, roads were closed and even pedestrians had problems in the snow. This isn’t a part of the world used to dealing with snow and ice.

And it wasn’t only the snow that caused a problem, temperatures plummeted to minus ten!
