This year’s Dubrovnik Winter Festival opens this weekend on the 27th of November with the traditional lighting of the first advent candle in front of the cathedral and then the big switch on of the Christmas lights in the historic Old City. The evening will finish with a free concert in front of the St. Blaise Church by Neno Belan.
From the 27th of November until the 6th of January Dubrovnik will come alive to the sights and sounds of Christmas with the 8th Dubrovnik Winter Festival. The program of events is out and it might be a little modest compared to pre-pandemic years but there is something for everyone, from festive workshops for children to free guided tours of the Old City and plenty of concerts.
One of the mainstays of the festival are the Christmas houses dotted around the historic Old City, from the Stradun to Pile, and one again these stands have been installed.
