December opened in fine fashion in Dubrovnik with brilliant blue skies, bucket loads of sunshine and generally calm weather. With temperatures around 17 degrees the Adriatic Sea is actually warmer than the air temperature today as sea temperatures measured 19 degrees.
Whilst that might be a touch chilly for most locals and tourists some braved the conditions and dived into the Adriatic. These happy swimmers were spotted in the bay of Pile directly in front of the iconic Dubrovnik city walls.
Even though December has begun in sparkling weather the forecast for the rest of the week shows rain and grey skies. But at least these swimmers will remember the first day of December and their dip in the Adriatic.
