After record-breaking results at the peek of the tourist season and the achievement of three million arrivals for the first time in history, Dubrovnik as a leading Croatian tourist brand continues to record excellent tourist traffic – even in November. This month our city hit a record of 1,704 arrivals, six times more than in 2015 and 3347 overnight stays, which is four times more than last year. Last weekend majority of guests were from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, USA, Korea, Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Taiwan and the United Kingdom – who all enjoyed the festive decoration of Dubrovnik and lovely atmosphere of Dubrovnik Winter Festival.
- Dubrovnik Winter Festival was initiated and became a recognizable brand of Dubrovnik in the winter, with excellent results of the arrivals from the region but also guests from distant markets. We are proud that in addition to millions of summer photos by which Dubrovnik has been recognized in the world, now there is one winter, magic, vivid Dubrovnik – said Vlaho Margaretic, Head of the Department for entrepreneurship, tourism and sea.
It's easy to see that Dubrovnik is getting different during the winter. Dubrovnik Winter Festival has made one of the most beautiful towns in the world attractive to tourists even when you can't swim or sunbathe. Because Dubrovnik is much more than just sea and the sun – Dubrovnik is beautiful at any season.
