Dress code flexible again? Dress code flexible again? Niksa Duper

Is the Dubrovnik bikini ban over?

By  Sep 15, 2016

The Dubrovnik “bikini ban” lasted exactly three-weeks, or so it seems from these photos taken yesterday on the main street through the Old City, the Stradun.

The dress-code regulations were introduced on the 23rd of August with signs installed on all the main entrances into the historic Old City and fifteen security guards were hired to enforce the law. These guards were presumably having a collective holiday yesterday. 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.

However we can obviously assume from these scenes of bikini clad tourists and bare-chested men that the authorities are not taking the new regulations as seriously as they promised they would.
