WHAT TO DO IN DUBROVNIK, CROATIA IN THE WINTER

We know what you’re probably thinking: “Visiting Dubrovnik in the winter? I don’t want to spend all my days inside some coffee shop or a museum because the weather is terrible!”. We can show you the best of Dubrovnik in the winter, so you can ACTUALLY enjoy your stay in Dubrovnik (without feeling like you’re taking part in the Battle of King’s landing). Because, if you, like me, have just had enough of: – Streets jammed up with tourists bumping into each other all the time; – Long lines to get a seat for a coffee; – Hours of waiting for a bus that just isn’t full to the very last inch; – Noise levels that make you feel like you’re at an AC/DC concert; – All the stress of having to deal with epic crowds DON’T panic, we’ve GOT you covered! What you should know, though, is that Dubrovnik gets lots of sunny days all year round (more than 250 per year!) (or: more than Amsterdam, Milan, Paris, Edimburgh or London, so those are off the table). If you still can’t decide and you’re afraid that there might be very little to do in Dubrovnik during the winter, here’s all the amazing experiences that Dubrovnik offers in winter time: 1. Help save King’s Landing at GOT’s escape room 2. Make Ragusa great again finding its long lost treasure 3. Keep an eye on the perimeter of King’s landing by walking on the city walls 4. If goth is just your vibe don’t miss out on the great haunted tours; 5. Take part in Dubrovnik winter Festival or in Saint Blaise holiday 6. Don’t miss a single location where GOT was shot 7. Wine tasting tours: for those who “drink and know things” 8.Take advantage of free Dubrovnik Tourist Board activities

If you don’t feel like spending a beautiful sunny day inside some museum, don’t forget to book your tickets for the City Walls Walking Tour (link here). Almost 2 kilometres long, the city walls were picked to shoot many of the HBO record-breaking tv series Game of Thrones. If you’ve ever wondered what’s like to be part of the City Watch of King’s Landing, put on your shiniest gold cloak and keep an eye on the perimeter for any intruder that might assault the city (Stannis Baratheon or Venetians, doesn’t matter). Don’t miss out on the opportunity to visit the stunning fortresses you can reach from the walls (Lovrijenac, Revelin, Minčeta, Bokar, St John and St Lucas). The city walls are even more beautiful to visit in the winter, as Dubrovnik is not that crowded or miserably hot to walk around. You could also just want to enjoy a different angle on the picturesque Stradun or take some time to work on that perfect sea-in-the-background profile-picture we’ve all dreamt of; whatever the reason, don’t forget to book your tickets now!

5. Dubrovnik winter festival and Saint Blaise holiday

Enjoy a variety of food, drinks, souvenir and sweets from Dubrovnik and all over Croatia during this Winter festival happening from December 2nd to January 15. There’s nothing more magical than walking around & exploring Dubrovnik’s Old Town in winter, with all the Christmas lights and decoration and why not, drinking a hot cup of boiled wine or boiled gin (two of the most appreciated Christmas beverages around here during winter). Dubrovnik is perfect if you want to spend some nice winter holidays in a beautiful city away from the crowd. Plus, if you are in town on February 3 rd , don’t miss the biggest festivity in town – celebration of St. Blaise, patron saint of the town that has been continually celebrated since 972. This saint is so important to people of Dubrovnik, that in time of the republic, criminals were allowed to come into town 2 days around the holidays without fear of being prosecuted, so they can give their honors to the patron. So be sure you won’t miss it! (if you are indeed a criminal we don’t know if the rule still applies)

 

6. Don’t miss any of your favorite GOT locations

What you heard is true: Dubrovnik was indeed the location HBO picked to shoot its fantasy masterpiece Game of Thrones. You’re thinking: “How do I know where every scene was shot?”, “Where can I hear juicy anecdotes about my most beloved actor?” and “I just wish there was a way I could see every single location where GOT was shot”. Worry no more, you’ve come to the right place! Our friends do Game of Thrones walking tours & will give you the opportunity to have someone shout “SHAME!” at you (don’t forget to put on clothes!) and check out all the places where Tyrion pronounced some of your most cherished quotes of the whole series. Just wear all the merchandise you’ve bought in these last years (money well spent, no doubt) and book your tickets for the GOT walking tour here! For the more indpendent, we prepared a Game of Thrones Dubrovnik Guide with top Game of Thrones filming locations in Dubrovnik.

Local tip: Book both Dubrovnik escape room & the walking tour & get 20% discount in the Game of Thrones Dubrovnik package!

If you enjoy some good wine (we cannot blame you) come to Dubrovnik this winter and be sure to check out the wine-tasting tours and our local wineries! Most popular wine growing region is Croatia in close to Dubrovnik, Peljesac peninsula famous for its numerous wine roads. You will have the opportunity to taste some good wine sitting right in front of our beautiful sea, visit local markets and taste local honey, ham and cheese, all while enjoying our world’s envied sights. Our favorite wine is Plavac Mali Škrapa by Marlais winery – you can visit them for wine tasting or enjoy it in some of the restaurants in town (Nautika, Skar winery, D’vino Winery).
