You know that feeling, you come out of season and some destination and it’s all closed, there is a cafe and a restaurant? There is certainly no such thing in Dubrovnik, at least not in December.In addition to the extension of the season, the rich program of the Dubrovnik Winter Festival and the diverse gastronomic offer at Advent houses, during the month of December in Dubrovnik you can enjoy a total of 43 open catering facilities in the city of Dubrovnik.Given the increase in the number of international and domestic flights during the winter months and the interest and growth in the number of visitors, the Tourist Board of the City of Dubrovnik in cooperation with the City of Dubrovnik has printed a new information leaflet “Winter restaurants“, Which contains a list of open restaurants, pizzerias and fast food restaurants during the month of December with special working hours.You can download the information leaflet on the website of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board (https://bit.ly/2Su2QNr) and in the Information Offices of the Tourist Board in Pile, in Gruž and in Lapadski Dvori.Attachment: FLYER WITH LIST OF RESTAURANTS / WINTER RESTAURANS DUBROVNIKThis cooperation is extremely important, because the effort in organizing events and manifestations, as well as the added investment in the best possible air connection falls into the water if the destination does not breathe “full lungs” and is not alive. Otherwise, we can invest a lot of effort and money, bring tourists, and if in the city they have nothing to see and experience, everything is deserted, closed and “dead”, then we get a negative perception. We lose guests, we throw effort, money and time into the wind and we get bad publicity. Better that we did nothing than get bad publicity and a recommendation.Also, with this kind of promotion, we additionally give importance to those caterers who work throughout the year, we encourage sales and we additionally promote them. Because if the whole story is not complete, and if the catering facilities do not benefit, and that means profit, then the whole story will fall into the water. So in the case of hotels, shops, museums, etc.… a tourist destination is much more than a hotel. Also, we need to be aware that the whole destination has to lose (work and maintain a cold drive, and maybe go in and minus) for at least three years in order to be able to extend the tourist season and create a tourism economy. Who is to blame for the fact that so far we have not developed a longer tourist season in a quality and strategic way, is much harder now. This is a great example of how to manage and develop tourism in synergy with the destination. What should be normal and natural, because tourist destinations are not and should not be an end in themselves. Of course, this is only a small part of the story, and we can certainly add the lower cost of renting terraces for restaurants and other financial relief, provide them with some of the target groups evenly, etc.… everything is in communication. In order to be able to develop a tourist year, our destinations must be alive.Record tourist eleven months in Dubrovnik In eleven months of 2018, Duborvnik achieved record tourist results.
