Cheap flights to Dubrovnik are fast becoming a firm favourite with hip, culturally-savvy young Brits who are used to going the extra mile to be the first in the know about the hottest places to eat, drink and shop.
Over the last few years, Dubrovnik has become something of a hidden gem when it comes to shopping for one-off items, vintage clothing and arty little nick-nacks that simply aren't found elsewhere. The Croatian Designer's Room, located at Od Puča 11 in Dubrovnik's Old Town, is a must-visit for the latest in Croatian couture, while Maria Boutique on Ulica Sv Dominika is the best place to snap up haute couture items from fresh new design talent that would look at home in London's trendy East End.
June is the Best Time to Visit
For homewares and stationery, try Lega Lega, also located in the Old Town. This boutique stocks design-led items that have been designed and made by Dubrovnik-based creatives; a sure-fire way to add a unique twist to any home.
For those with their finger well and truly on the pulse of the fashion world, June is the best time to visit, with Dubrovnik Fashion Week taking place at the end of the month, showcasing some of the best sartorial talent from around Croatia and beyond.
