We’ve all done it before, turned up in a foreign country and everything is closed. You might think at first that everyone’s having an afternoon nap (which may be the case) but don’t forget that there are fourteen public holidays every year in Croatia.
The vast majority of tourist businesses will work on these days but schools, banks, post offices, travel agencies and a good deal of the shops will be closed especially if it is a more important day.
Apart from the fourteen national holidays there is also an unofficial public holiday in Dubrovnik on the 3rd of February every year. This is the day of Saint Blaise (Sv. Vlaho) the patron saint of Dubrovnik and is the biggest day of celebration for the city and the citizens.
