The Mayor of the City of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković, thanked all the employees of the emergency service and utility companies that assisted during the New Year's Eve.
In an open letter on the city’s website the mayor wrote -
On behalf of the city of Dubrovnik, I would like to thank all of the emergency services and all the employees of the municipal utility services who spent New Year's night on duty for the smooth functioning of the city as well as the safety of our fellow citizens and visitors.
Dubrovnik showed that it is the most beautiful open stage in the world for New Year's Eve. According to official estimates of the Ministry of Interior there were between 15 and 20 thousand people on the Stradun for New Year, which is the largest organized open event that has been held in our town since 2000. This is also supported by the data of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, according to which 28% more guests decided to spend their New Year in Dubrovnik compared to the previous year.
Therefore, once again, I express my sincere gratitude to all the public services that ensured that New Year's Eve, and that the New Year's night passed peacefully and with the highest level of organization, just as the City of Dubrovnik deserves, to the pride of all our citizens.
