Advent in Dubrovnik has been announced among the first winter celebrations in Croatia. This past Saturday has witnessed the opening of the third Dubrovnik Winter Festival. This effort made by Dubrovnik’s mayor office deserves every praise as Dubrovnik’s winter and in particular Christmas and New Year offer is becoming richer with the Festival’s opening.
We believe that this is just beginning of the winter tale story that ought to be extended to theatre performances, concerts of all sorts, here by meaning classic and popular music and creative events that would liven up the winter in Dubrovnik and make it the Europe’s most unique experience. The co-ordination of efforts encompassing the natural creation of a task team would make the advent in Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik itself as a dream tale worth visiting in the winter when the Old City is sleepy and recuperating from the summer intensive season.
For this to happen, two factors ought to be improved, first being better airline connectivity of Dubrovnik with the rest of the world, the second, accommodation offer from Dubrovnik hotels and owners of the apartments that would be price competitive. That is why, this action or initiative so to speak has to be driven from the mayor’s office which would co-ordinate and actively participate in the marketing efforts of this advent open festival that would put Dubrovnik on the map of all year round destinations.
