Learn to sing Dubrovnik Christmas carol (Kolenda) while walking by

By  Dec 22, 2016


Christmas carols in Dubrovnik have a special place in the festive spirit of the city. That was proven yesterday, when the notes of 'Kolenda' were placed in the street of Saint Dominic. What a beautiful new decoration! 

In case you didn't know, these traditional Christmas carols, known as Kolende, have a long and rich history. The tradition of singing “Kolende” in Dubrovnik is believed to stretch back to the 13th century and is still alive today. Singers go from home to home and celebrate Christmas Eve, as well as Christmas day and New Year. Usually the singers take instruments, such as guitars, harmonica and mandolin, with them.
