Dubrovnik has featured in one of the most popular newspapers in the UK, The Sun, with an article entitled – “DUB BE GOOD TO ME From medieval walls to the clear Adriatic sea — relax in Croatia’s stunning walled city of Dubrovnik.”
British tourists are traditionally the most numerous in Dubrovnik and with the Prime Minister Boris Johnson planning to reopen travel bookings have increased steeply. Full details of the possible easing of measures will be announced on April 12 when the government publishes their travel analysis. London has said that the ban on most trips abroad will remain in force until at least May 17.
And publicity for Dubrovnik as a travel destination for 2021 in the most important market for the city will certainly be a shot in the arm for the city’s ailing travel industry.
“It will be some time before the cruise ships can come back, and they won’t return in nearly the same numbers as before the pandemic. In the meantime, the incomparable beauty of this ancient Adriatic port will be so much easier to enjoy once we’re able to travel again,” writes Mary Novakovich in The Sun.
And adds “Before the heat of the day became too much, I took my time wandering along the old stone ramparts that meander for more than a mile around the pedestrianised old town. I looked down at the town’s gleaming main thoroughfare, Stradun, which is usually rammed. It was nearly empty. I had more time to admire some of the landmarks that would be instantly recognisable to any Game Of Thrones fans.”
Of course the article also points out that travel from the UK to Croatia isn’t possible due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however with the speed of the vaccine process in England and the ever-improving situation across Croatia there can be no doubt that UK tourists will once again visit the pearl of the Adriatic this summer.
