After a Mass held in front of the Dubrovnik Cathedral the 1045th Day of St. Blaise continued with the traditional procession through the streets of the Old City.

The historic city core was packed it worshippers as the relics of St. Blaise were carried through the streets. These are traditions dating back to the 15th century and the Festival of St Blaise is also the City of Dubrovnik Day.

People turned up from all over the Dubrovnik region, and beyond, to respect the Day of St. Blaise in Dubrovnik, the patron saint of the city. Banners, colourful costumes and flags marked the day as Dubrovnik celebrated.
