Hi. My wife and I will be traveling to Dubrovnik next week for 7 days. We are staying in the Old City. I have a few questions if anyone has the time to give us a few tips.

1. I see the average temperature is around 70 F high and 60 F low. What do you recommend we bring for clothing? Resort attire? or, casual European attire? Will an evening jacket be required anywhere? We like to be casual but want to be appropriate.

2. Is the sea still warm enough to swim in?

3. Will there be evening concerts available to see? Other cultural events?

4. Any current recommendations on restaurants in the Old City?

Thanks so much.

Dubrovnik can be quite smart but not evening jacket smart. Not really sure what resort attire is but I suspect casual European is closer to the mark - shirts rather than T-shirts.

I have swum around Dubrovnik in the first week or so of October as the sea is still very warm.

Dubrovnik is also very cultural and DE DubrovnikTravelLady will no doubt suggest things. I saw a great Faberge exhibition a few years ago in early October. I also found this:


Dubrovnik Early Music Festival has been creating the harmonious unity of architecture and sounds of Dubrovnik. Early music is a passage to our past, tradition and heritage that we now live in.
