A picnic in Dubrovnik, what a quaint idea with those tourism crowds – meet Piknik Dubrovnik.
What comes to your mind when you think of Dubrovnik in the summer? Sunshine, sea and palm trees certainly do, but crowds, noise and traffic jams probably do too. As the masses descend upon and into the famous walls of Croatia’s formidable tourist Mecca every summer, the city boasts hundreds of different tourism related activities, from boat and bus excursions to kayaking to film/TV tours to sightseeing, it has it all, but much like anything else, monotony is a danger and a very real one at that. There is only so much one can take and only so many leaflets about kayaks and walking tours one can hold.
Allow me to introduce something totally original and entirely different. Piknik Dubrovnik.
Owned by Canadian expat Alexandra Cram who lives and works in Dubrovnik and has done for several years now, Piknik Dubrovnik embraces everything that Dubrovnik once was, and that is simplicity. With the help of Piknik Dubrovnik, you can grab a gourmet take-away picnic backpack filled to the brim with fresh, traditional Dalmatian produce and dine al fresco in some of the most beautiful parts of the city and its surrounding areas. The picnic is presented beautifully, the plates and cutlery are eco-friendly, the food is of consistently high quality and is kept cool and fresh by an insulated and easy to carry bag, with liquid items like fresh lemonade and wine packed in a sleeve to make sure it stays in the absolute best condition. Thanks to Piknik Dubrovnik, you can sample a range of delicious local food and wine traditional to both the Dubrovnik region and Dalmatia itself, all in one place, and most importantly without being herded like cattle through busy side-street restaurants.
Alex has an unbridled passion for nature, hiking and exploring Dubrovnik and Croatia in general and can give you the best inside tips on where to go to relax, re-charge your batteries and enjoy your al fresco dining experience to the maximum. It is even possible to rent a portable folding bamboo table and parasol to make sure you’re protected from the harsh sun, thanks to Alex’s experience and love for nature, she has lovingly made sure to tick every box and adhere to every requirement you may have, to make sure you have the perfect dining experience for a very, very reasonable price.
