Dubrovnik Mayor Mato Franković held a meeting with representatives of restaurateurs, and the topics were related to preparations for the upcoming tourist season.
In addition to numerous restaurateurs, mostly from the area of the old city centre and the contact zone, the meeting was also attended by representatives of professional associations, including representatives of the Guild of Restaurateurs and Tourist Workers of the Chamber of Crafts of Dubrovnik-Neretva County, the Guild of Catering and Tourism Activities at the Association of Craftsmen Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik County Chamber of Commerce.
The mayor prefaced by pointing out that after the 2022 season, which brought economic recovery, all indicators point to a good and high-quality tourist season ahead, in which Dubrovnik will be connected by air to over 75 international destinations.
Speaking about the new tourist season, he warned that the competent authorities and officials of the City of Dubrovnik will carry out uncompromising monitoring of the noise level in public areas, and in the context of the Decision on the hospitality industry, which assigned the Municipal Police to supervise the implementation of the decision on noise protection in open spaces in hospitality facilities.

He reminded that, as part of the implementation of the Management Plan, the City of Dubrovnik started the full application of the decision on noise last year and will systematically control all catering establishments, especially those in the historic core, all in order to prevent the quality of life of our fellow citizens from being damaged by playing louder music of the allowed values.
In addition to the monitoring of the noise level, the municipal police will also carry out increased monitoring of the use of public areas and the tenants' compliance with the contract for the lease of public areas.
Mayor Franković also referred to the Decision on the establishment of a special traffic regime zone, for which a public consultation is open until March 25, saying that the goal of the city administration is to achieve a balance between everyday life and economic activities and the needs of the tourist sector while protecting the protected cultural and historical heritage.
