Over tourism certainly isn’t an all year round problem in Dubrovnik. The weather is perfect, the Old City glorious and Adriatic Sea is glinting in the background, and the city is almost empty. This January has seen exceptionally mild and sunny weather with temperatures touching the high teens, and the historic city core was an absolute picture yesterday with the sun bouncing off the stone façades.
And yet, mainly due to the terrible flight connections, the UNESCO Heritage Site is all but empty. If you really want to have the gems of this walled city to yourself then come in January and February, you can walk the cobbled streets and soak up the culture without the hustle and bustle of the summer months.
