Dubrovnik Summer Festival is one of the biggest festivals in Europe and the most important cultural event in Croatia. The festival is organised in Dubrovnik between the 10 July and the end of August. It is a folk, music, opera and theatre holiday with numerous performances, concerts, plays and so on.
The first edition took place in 1950. The idea of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival was to harmonize the historic and dramatic atmosphere of Dubrovnik. This city was and is the heart of artistic and cultural traditions reffering to theatre, literature. The initiators paid attention on the Renaissance and Baroque ambience and tried to unite them in various ways. On squares, in park palaces or towers, there are organised art performances. The characters from famous dramas of Shakespeare, Goldoni, Moliere stay alive each year on a pavement of Dubrovnik. The Fort Lovrijenac resounds Hamlet's words, the city squares are spectators of Fishermens Quarrels.
