Peak season generally arrives with the warm weather, running from about June through August. Though, September and October are also great months to travel for those bargain travellers seeking cheap flights to Dubrovnik as the weather is warm (about 21 C to 25 C) but not too hot, and the crowds begin to thin. July and August are also the time when Dubrovnik Summer Festival takes place. Hosted since 1949, the festival features various cultural events around the city’s parks, squares and churches.
Fans of water sports should book their flights to Dubrovnik in advance to make sure they visit during the Water Polo Wild League in July and August. This amateur water polo competition is one of the most famous events of its kind with matches played in open water and providing spectators with great entertainment.
Late October through April is generally the off season in Dubrovnik; temperatures are lower during this time – about 12 C to 15 C – and more cheap flight to Dubrovnik deals are available.
If you happen to take a flight to Dubrovnik during its quieter time, don’t miss the Festival of St Blaise in February. The event honours the city’s patron saint and fills the streets with processions and dances.
The Croatian city of Dubrovnik is situated along the Adriatic Sea, beckoning visitors to explore its stunning beaches and charming Old Town.
Dubrovnik’s beaches range from beautiful sweeping curves of sand to rugged coves with soaring cliffs. Lapad Beach and Banje Beach are both easily accessible and very pretty. Lokrum Island, reachable by ferry, offers a chance to escape the summer crowds.
The city experienced heavy bombing in the early 1990s, but is now making a full comeback as a flight destination for tourists. The city walls are well worth exploring and offer superb views of the area. St. John’s Fort houses the Maritime Museum, and The Stradun – the city’s main street – is the vibrant heart of the Old Town, beautifully paved with limestone and lined with bars, shops and cafes. Visitors can climb up to the cable car station and take a ride up Srd Hill, to take in spectacular views of the city and sea.
Other museums to visit in Dubrovnik include the Ethnographic Museum, with its collections of textiles and folk costumes, and the Rector’s Palace Museum, featuring paintings and artefacts. “Game of Thrones” fans can enjoy a show-themed tour of filming locations in the city.
The warm-weather season truly begins in May when the temperatures start to reach average highs of around 21 C. June, July and August are very warm, with average highs rising to about 28 C. The weather stays pleasant until late September. November and March have average highs of about 12 C. December through February can be cool, with average highs around 8 C.
The Old Town is a maze of little streets which can be fun but somewhat tricky to navigate on foot. It’s a small area but some streets are quite steep. Buses run between the Old Town and other destinations. Cars can be hired in advance or on arrival.
Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) is about 10 miles (16 km) from the city and shuttle buses are available (about a 45-minute ride) for transport to the local bus station, which is 1.5 miles (2.5 km) from the city centre. Alternatively, visitors can take a taxi direct from the airport. Some hotels also offer airport pick-up, either free of charge or with payment of a supplement – this is often the easiest way of getting into Dubrovnik.
