Dubrovnik Winter Festival opens in grand style

By  Dec 03, 2017

The 2017 Dubrovnik Winter Festival officially opened last night with the lighting of the first Advent Candle in the heart of the Old City. The celebrations and prayers were attended by huge crowds and in spite of the terrible weather the Stradun looked very festive as the Christmas decorations were turned on for the first time.

The festive stands, selling a variety of traditional cuisines, also opened their doors for the first time this winter. The evening was completed with a concert by the popular singer Gibonni. During the Dubrovnik Winter Festival all buses from 5.00pm until the last departure will run free of charge.
