Summer isn't even on the horizon, spring has only just begun, but already the swimming season in Dubrovnik has begun. The iconic Banje Beach with panoramic views over the Old City of Dubrovnik was just too tempting today for some tourists in the city. Temperatures touched 27 degrees today and a handful of sunbathers took full advantage.
And even thought the Adriatic Sea is only around 16 degrees it didn't seem to deter some brave swimmers from diving in. From coats to shorts and T-shirts, just a couple of months ago the whole region was gripped in a polar front with heavy snow and temperatures down to minus 15, what a difference a couple of months makes.
