Hi guys! In this blog post we decided to let you in on a little secret...
..... Drum roll sound ........
We'll give you all the dates, locations and types of events lots of locals attend during the July/August. Dubrovnik as a city has several districts, and almost all have 'their nights' where all the locals that live in the area + all the once that don't, we all gather together at the same place, drink a bit, eat a bit, dance a bit, there is always at least one Croatian singer on the stage, mingle a bit.. and it is always so much fun!
Now don't think too much and keep reading;
16th of July – Porporela night – you know that Old Port inside the Old Town? Well walk up to the lighthouse, walk towards the music, you won't be able to miss it! The programme starts at 21:00 pm, a rich selection of food and drinks, good music, prize games, and lottery for humanitarian purposes, also the inauguration of the new-born Duke of Porporela.
27th of July – Montovjerna night – a district that up until this year didn't have ''it's night'', so they will surely make it worth! A Croatian bend will be preforming, and regarding the exact location for this local event – comment us! ;)
10th of August – Pile gate night – yes, the famous main entrance to the Old Town where you must have been already if you were in the Old Town, has its night. Members of the popular Split group of 3 amazing singers / musicians will entertain everyone the whole evening. P.S. Location for this night is in (now very popular) beach Šulić. Again, just come to the Pile gate, walk down the stairs like you are going to fortress Lovrijenac and then follow the music and the people.
17th of August – Ploče gate night – you guessed it, both entrances to the Old Town have its nights. On this side of the town, there will be one very famous Balkan singer. Location for this event will be at Banje beach. If you don’t know where Banje beach is, walk from the Ploče gates in the way the crowds will go. All jokes aside, it’s easy to find, once at the gates, walk along the coastline and you’ll see the entrance to the Banje beach – the first beach you see is that one!
24th of August – Uvala bay night – Lapad district is a very big one, very green, calm and relaxed one. There are many hotels, however many beaches, parks, promenades and locals enjoying in a cup of coffee by the sea as well. Uvala bay is their main centre for this event, the whole promenade leading to Uvala beach will be filled with people, local food, different kinds of drinks and music from each corner.
31th of August – Gruž night – you know where the main port is? You know where the main bus station is? All located at the Gruž district! The whole car road gets closed and along the way on the right and on the left you can see lots of different booths providing everything from food, drinks, sweets, balloons, etc. The park in the middle is full with children having fun, in every bar there is different music, restaurants have special offers and the main stage where Croatian singer will perform is at the main dock!
Now, if you truly wish to travel and become a local in the destination you are traveling to – what better way?
YOU’RE VERY WELCOME!
P.S. No pictures for this post, we're waiting for yours after attending! ;)
