Christmas comes to Dubrovnik earlier and earlier every year and yesterday the first decorations were hung in the historic Old City of Dubrovnik. It seems that the city has gone from swimming in the Adriatic in roasting temperatures to the sounds of jingle bells overnight.
There are 44 days left to Christmas Day and Dubrovnik is following the global trend and getting ready more than a month in advance. The first street to get its festive feel was the street that runs parallel to the Stradun, Ulica od Puča, and today the rest of the streets will get their own decorations.
The Dubrovnik Winter Festival begins on the 2nd of December and by then the whole city will look like a scene from Christmas card.
