Dubrovnik in December

Dubrovnik in December is nothing short of breathtaking

Flying to Dubrovnik in December isn’t as bad as it sounds. It is an off-peak time but there are still many things to do while you are there. For one, you will avoid the tourists and basically have the city all to yourself. Now that sounds like a plan to enjoy a little alone time and tour the Game of Thrones! Consider the discovery of Dubrovnik in December.

One of the first places you will want to head to is the Old Town, which is the old part of the city that is actually rather new as it had been rebuilt after the war in the early 1990s. The first reason why you should go in December? Hotel prices are very inexpensive. You can stay in an awesome location for a really good price and be where everything is. We press you to try and do this during the summer months.

In Old Town, there are many things to see and do. You can check out the Dominican Monastery with its amazing architecture, cool little gift shops, Sponza Palace, the Old Port (with a wonderful view of the harbor from outside the walls), Rector’s Palace (a Gothic-Renaissance style mansion and museum), the Dubrovnik Cathedral, and St. Ignatius Church. There is so much more you can see and do but these are some of the highlights.

The great thing about touring Dubrovnik during the off-season is that you can wander the streets, climb countless staircases, walk through narrow alleys and search for the best views. They are everywhere but you can’t do this very well in the summer. When you find a spot, the views will take your breath away.

Once the sun sets you will feel the chill of the December night air but there are lovely bars and restaurants open that will help you warm up! Old Town is lit up with festive Christmas and New Year’s decorations. There is even a Christmas market that has dancing with a DJ, colored lights and drinks! There’s always a party in Dubrovnik even in the winter!

Another thing you can do in Dubrovnik in December is taking a walking tour of the Game of Thrones. See where many of the show’s scenes were shot, right in Dubrovnik and its surrounding areas. These tours are private and available to you all year long. So why not let someone lead you around and show you all that this great city has to offer? You won’t be fighting crowds of people for the best views. They are yours for the taking.

If you are looking for a little European getaway, consider Dubrovnik in December. You will basically have the city to yourself and you will be able to appreciate it just a little better. Do come back in the summer, however, so you can experience all of the hustle and bustle that this incredible city has to offer as well.

Absolutely brilliant!

Tom is an absolutely brilliant guide and I would highly recommend him. This was our 2nd tour with him and as before, he was entertaining as well as informative and happy to tailor the tour to suit the needs of our group. The island trip to Lokrum (Qarth) was a lovely relaxing way to end the tour after all the climbing and walking around the Game of Thrones sites within the Old Town in the morning.
