There are plenty of things to do and see in Dubrovnik when it rains, so even if you are visiting during bad weather, worry not!

Dubrovnik enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate and prides itself to be one of the sunniest locations in Croatia, with more than 250 sunny days per year. But even in our sunny town, sometimes we have rainy days in Dubrovnik.

Don’t let the grey skies ruin your holidays – here is a list of things you can do in Dubrovnik during bad weather:

1. Visit the museums

Dubrovnik has a rich history, and visiting the museums in town offers you a glimpse into the past of the small but powerful Ragusan Republic. Our picks are: Rupe, Rector’s Palace, Sponza, Pharmacy &  Franciscan Monastery, Cathedral & treasury, Aquarium, War Photography Museum

3. Indulge in wine tasting

Dubrovnik has a lot of good wines produced locally, with vineyards all across the county, especially in the Peljesac Peninsula. Take on a tasting adventure and try the best wines Dubrovnik has to offer.  Our favourite is Skrapa, made by Marlais Winery.

If you don’t want to go out of the town to enjoy the wine tasting in a winery, try D’Vino or Skar wine bars.
