Yesterday, here in Dubrovnik, started the Dubrovnik Summer Festival: “a world famous annual event held in Dubrovnik. A rich program consisting of classical music, theatre performances and dance is performed at more than 70 open-air venues from 10th of July until 25th of August.” (source)
Due to the very high amount of people I didn’t manage to see most of the initial ceremony, started at 21.00, in square Pred lužom.
Just after 22.00, the fireworks started right in front of the old port. Many ships and boats carried tourists to areas from where to watch the fireworks.
Having missed the first part, I used that time to also find a good spot for the show. I found it to be near the Ploče Gate, just inside the town.
During the whole duration of the fireworks, a French kid kept on, very emphatically, shouting ‘Woah! Wow!’, after each explosion; the father promptly added “Yeah, he really loves them”.
Even though I am not a huge fan of this kind of shows, it was nice, probably enhanced by the atmosphere and the beautiful location.
