As early as 1950, Dubrovnik with its summer festival was heralded a world
phenomenon in new theater. Surrounded by the architectural beauty of Dubrovnik,
actors from around the world have found the inspiration to bring to life
renaissance sensibility, and reveal their closer contact with the audience.

has become one of Dubrovnik's essential attributes.
The Masquerades in the Old town begin after the St.Blaise festivity at
the beginning of February, culminate during three days preceding Ash Wednesday
and end by the closing carnival night. In recent years the Dubrovnik Masquerade
has become a traditional segment of winter tourism. Stradun is the meeting
place of young and old people from Dubrovnik and Pupa with their guests.

occasion is to watch the City Brass band which has an impressive history
and has been active for over one hundred and sixty years. The festive
days in the city are made even more so by the sounds of trumpets, trombones,
bombardina, clarinets, tambourines, and the attraction of uniforms - the
official dress of band players in the uniform of the colors of Dubrovnik
- red and blue. Dubrovnik can also invite you to participate in the ordinary
night life entertainment, when people gather in the Old Town, at Stradun,
sipping on a drink, talking a walk or observing the old harbor in nightlight.

and being watched, pubs, cafes, bars are all a significant part of the
swirling night life in Dubrovnik.

is entertainment itself.
