Make sure you know this before you visit Dubrovnik
Coffee is more important than you think
According to a survey, Croatians spend 22.5 million hours a year having coffee? That’s a lot, and Dubrovnik is not an exception. When you hear “Let’s have a coffee” in Dubrovnik it means many things. It can stand for socialising, gossiping, conducting a business or a date. What's the most important thing about coffe in Dubrovnik? Well, to sip it slow. When we say slow it means having just one cup of coffee in a cafe for a few hours.
Dubrovnik is MUCH MUCH more than Game of Thrones.
Even if you're you’re obsessed with the show, there’s no need to call Dubrovnik - King’s Landing. There’s definitely no king around here, and Dubrovnik was here long before the popular show came along.
If you see someone famous, act like you didn’t
Even if it’s Kim Kardashian, Dubrovnik locals are way too cool to acknowledge famous people, and it’s always been like that. Beyonce, Michael Douglas, Catharine Zeta Jones, Kurt Russell, Richard Gere, Nick Nolte, Tom Cruise, Sir Roger Moore, Tina Turner, Roman Abramovich, Bernie Ecclestone all visited and loved Dubrovnik.
