Dubrovnik's Traditional 'Tombula' Returns: A Festive Blend of Entertainment and Charity on St. Blaise's Day

Written by  Feb 02, 2024

The Dubrovnik Tourist Board, in collaboration with the City of Dubrovnik, is once again organizing the traditional "Tombula," a favourite entertainment event for the Festivity of St. Blaise, which will take place on Saturday, February 3, starting at 4 p.m.

Tickets will be sold from 3 p.m. in front of the Sponza Palace at a price of two euros. The Dubrovnik Tourist Board invites everyone to participate in this entertaining charity game, and the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Association "Together for Health."

According to the tradition dating back to 1842, as noted by the Dubrovnik historian Josip Bersa, in the afternoon of the Festivity of St. Blaise, the game of tombula (bingo) will be played again in front of the Sponza Palace.

Tombula on Stradun is a traditional event because this game is deeply rooted in Dubrovnik's tradition and family life.
