Chinese and Croatian Police to Jointly Patrol Dubrovnik

Lauren Simmonds

The Chinese love to visit as tourists and invest as businesspeople, but just how good are they at policing? We’re set to find out this summer in Croatia’s southernmost and top destination.

Endless are the stories about keen Chinese tourists making up enormous numbers of visitors to Croatia each year, and they notoriously like to travel outside of the main tourist season, meaning it isn’t uncommon to see groups of Chinese tourists enjoying all that Croatia has to offer when the huge crowds are gone. 

Be it food, history, culture or architecture, if there is one group of people who absolutely love to take in as much as possible, then it’s the Chinese. Their investments into various projects across the country have been vast of late, too, with numerous Chinese investors and investment companies teaming up with Croatian entrepreneurs and cutting deals to construct. 

With all that said, just how will this industrious, famously intelligent group of people do as police officers? Dubrovnik is set to find out this season.

As Dubrovacki Vjesnik writes on the 19th of June, 2018, this summer, Dubrovnik will be patrolled by the very first mixed Chinese-Croatian police patrol. A statement from the Chinese Embassy announced that on Sunday, July the 15th, at 09:00 in front of the Church of St. Blaise (Sv. Vlaho), the beginning of the ”two-nation” police patrol will be officially marked in the Pearl of the Adriatic.

In addition to the mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Frankovic, who will symbolically hand over the golden key to the Chinese police officials, Croatia’s Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli and Chinese Ambassador Hu Zhaoming will attend the ceremony held within the mighty walls of Dubrovnik’s UNESCO protected Old City.
