On this day, eleven years ago, Dubrovnik was under a thick blanket of snow as a polar front brought extremely cold weather to the whole region. On the 18th of February 2009 Dubrovnik was hit by one of the strongest snowstorms in its history and the whole city was under 10 centimetres of snow.
One of the largest snowstorms in history hit the city on Wednesday the 18th of February. After thunderstorms and rain, and then with the strengthening of the north wind the temperature dropped to -1 ° C, and then heavy snow fell in the Dubrovnik area for almost the entire second part of the day.
Of course the heavy snow brought a complete collapse to the traffic of the city and even some parts of the city were left without electricity, meaning many citizens were left in the cold.
