Every week through the height of summer we are hitting the streets of Dubrovnik to discover what you, our visitors, think about the city as a tourist destination. This week we caught up with a couple from Madrid, Pedro and Gracia, who were visiting Dubrovnik for the first time after a friend recommend the city to them.
Pedro and Gracia – Madrid, Spain
What are your impressions of Dubrovnik so far? What have you seen and what have you liked?
We just love it, we only arrived a day ago and what we have seen so far has been truly breath-taking. This is one of the most impressive cities in the world. My brother cam last year and he recommended that we see the city. We are only here for three days but we intend to fill our days.
How satisfied are you with the prices in Dubrovnik? Are we an expensive destination?
So far we are more than satisfied. I think the prices are quite similar with Spain, where we are from, the prices are average for a European destination of this quality.
How could you compare prices with Madrid?
Madrid is probably one of the most expensive cities in Spain, the average price of living is pretty high. If you want to eat in a restaurant or go to a night club, then it’s probably the same price as Barcelona. Dubrovnik, at least so far, seems slightly cheaper than both Madrid and Barcelona.
So you are fans of the Real Madrid midfielder Luka Modric?
Yes, absolutely. One of the best central midfield players in the long history of Real Madrid.
How satisfied are you with the level of service you have received in Dubrovnik?
Yes, the level of service has been fairly high, certainly nothing we can complain about. People are friendly and more than willing to help. We ate in a restaurant last night and the service was good, and the prices weren’t expensive.
