Romantic Activities in DubrovnikFebruary is not the high tourist season for Dubrovnik, which means you’ll be able to enjoy yourself without the press of summertime crowds, though you may encounter other couples marking Valentine’s Day there. February weather for Dubrovnik averages around 55 degrees during the day. You’ll need a sweater or a light jacket, but this temperature is perfect for walking Dubrovnik’s walls or strolling along its historic streets. You’ll soon realize why Dubrovnik has been so often called Croatia’s most beautiful city and why it’s a must-see destination any time of year.
Consider a boat excursion from Dubrovnik that will take you to nearby islands. These islands offer some sightseeing, bars, and nudist beaches—what you want to experience is up to you. You’ll also get to see the medieval city rising from the shore as you depart and approach via water.
Food and love go hand-in-hand; why not take a cooking class as a couple? Croatian cuisine, with its Mediterranean flavors, is satisfying and healthy. Learning to cook a meal you can share together when you return to real life will help you keep the romance of Dubrovnik alive in your own kitchen. To cap off the experience, purchase a bottle of Croatian wine to take home with you and open it when you prepare your Dubrovnik-inspired dinner.
Romantic RestaurantsSeafood restaurants and restaurants specializing in Mediterranean cuisine are well represented in Dubrovnik. Some, situated in the old city’s nooks and crannies, overlook the water. Others provide subtle ambiance with Old World-style interiors. Enjoy a taste of Adriatic cuisine for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner accompanied by a bottle of Croatian wine.
Although Old Town Dubrovnik does have its share of restaurants with gorgeous views and fine cuisine, you don’t have to be within the walls to enjoy the splendor of the medieval city while you dine. One of Dubrovnik’s most romantic restaurants is Nautica, just outside the old town. You’ll be able to gaze upon the old city and the ocean while you feast on freshly caught fish and just-picked produce.
