1. Hit the beach or escape to an island

2. Adventure in an Escape room

The heat can’t touch you in a room with an AC while solving puzzles with friends and family. Make your reservation for the Secret treasure of Dubrovnik room or the Game of thrones inspired room and enjoy the no.1 fun activity in Dubrovnik.

3. Keep hydrated & hit the shade

Keep yourself well hydrated in the summer heat. Refill your water bottle at the fountains in the Old Town – the water is perfectly clean to drink off tap. For the coolest drinks go to cave bar More in Lapad. The bar is in an underground cave with pleasant 15 degrees all year round.

4. Visit a museum

If you still want to do something productive and see something different, go visit one of the many museums Dubrovnik has to offer. Get to know local culture and learn something new.

5. Go to the cinema

If you want to snuggle with your lover or entertain your kids for a couple of hours, going to the cinema is the best option when the sun is at its peak. So grab your popcorn and relax while watching a movie on a hot day.

6. Eat at a restaurant 

Too hot to cook? Dubrovnik is filled with restaurants with amazing food and local recipes. Try some fresh seafood dishes and have fun while tasting some new meals.

7. Go shopping

Shopping- music to the girls ear. When the weather is too hot for walking around, go to the Sub City mall in Srebreno or visit some of the shops in town. Buy some souvenirs to remember your stay in Dubrovnik.
