Total Croatia News


The visitors had only one thing to say: Delicious!

In the last couple of weeks, we’ve been happy to report the crowds in Dubrovnik have dissipated, relieving the pressure on the gorgeous city and making sightseeing more enjoyable than it used to be during the summer season.

However, on Sunday morning, the Pearl of the Adriatic was graced by a phenomenal event that attracted an astonishing number of visitors – but this time, the crowd was more than welcome.

As part of the 4th Good Food Festival, Stradun hosted Dubrovačka trpeza (Dubrovnik table), a humanitarian manifestation that saw 42 exhibitors from hospitality establishments, hotels, pastry shops, bakeries, wineries and one brewery, reports DuList on October 22, 2017.


Naming the event Dubrovnik Table wasn’t accidental – the central piece was indeed a table measuring no less than 142 metres in length. Yes, 142! Filled with gourmet delights and the best wines the region can offer, the spread lured hungry guests who had a unique opportunity to get a tasty meal for 35 kuna, while a glass of wine came at a price of 15 kuna. The offer was mouthwatering, best assessed by visitors whose most frequent reaction was – ‘Delicious!’


As per the humanitarian note, the manifestation resulted in an impressive sum of 64.500 kuna that will be donated to two local organisations. One is named ‘Special Friend – Safely to Your Destination’, an association that’s dedicated to helping parents who are raising children with special needs or developmental disabilities. The other is the ‘Guide Dog Owners’ Club’, part of the Association for Guide Dog Education and Mobility from Dubrovnik.


Mayor Mato Franković visited the gourmet event, not hiding his satisfaction with the turnout. “Dubrovnik Table represents all the best that Dubrovnik hotels and hospitality workers know and can do. This is a fantastic end to an extremely successful season, one that recorded a traffic increase of 15%. I am very pleased, and I’m expecting even better figures, as the season isn’t over yet”, said the mayor at the opening ceremony.

Romina Vlašić, the director of the Tourist Board Dubrovnik, said the manifestation used to be a symbolic closing event of the tourist season. “In the meantime, however, the season got prolonged to the middle of November. Dubrovnik Table and the Good Food Festival are definitely rounding up the story of this season. We’re now headed for different programmes, such as the Dubrovnik Winter Festival”, said Vlašić.


Bravo to Dubrovnik for organising such a commendable event!
