Dubrovnik – what to do on a rainy day?

Here are some suggestions

Somehow, most visitors imagine Dubrovnik as a place where the sun shines every day, and they get caught by surprise when it rains. What to do on a rainy day?

Here are some suggestions.

  1. Explore local museums. Besides the Cultural – Historical Museum or the Franciscan Monastery Museum, my favorite is the Red History Museum. It is outside the Old City, and a visit to it includes a visit to another part of Dubrovnik, an area where tourists usually don’t go. The museum is within the former factory in the Gruž Bay area. In a modern and interactive way, you’ll learn about the recent history of Yugoslavia, where Croatia was a part of for fifty years. Not only you’ll discover the political structure of Yugoslavia or the socialist economy, but you will also have a chance to see the socialist fashion regarding furniture, clothing, even music. Maybe you will recognize Yugo, the most popular car of the former Yugoslavia, sold on foreign markets, even in the USA.
  2. Already in the Gruž Bay area, take a break visiting the local crafted beer brewery. Although wine drinkers, more and more people are learning to appreciate the crafted beers. Sample the beers and take a bite since the brewery offers food as well.
  3. If you are not a beer lover, visit the wine bar. Škar winery is just ten minutes’ walking distance from the Red History Museum. A small compact winery and liqueur manufacture opened in a family house of a local shipbuilder offers rustic wines and homemade spirits.
  4. If traveling with children, you can still have fun on a rainy day visiting the Selfie Museum in the Old City or the Dubrovnik Escape Room, situated in Lapad.
  5. Discover art galleries. Not just official ones, like the Modern Art Museum, grab a chance and visit the art studios of some of the artists that live in Dubrovnik, like Ana Marija Bezek, the potter, or Dubravka Lošić, the painter. In a genuine creative surrounding, you’ll be able to discover some unique Dubrovnik souvenirs. Or, visit Deša, the regional center for community building and civil society development. In their store, you will find homemade sweets, embroideries from the region, objects of art, all made by locals.

You see, there are so many things to do in Dubrovnik, even on a rainy day. Enjoy your stay!

But, if the weather is just cloudy, join me on the Welcome to Dubrovnik tour.
