Find Information about Events and Hotels in Dubrovnik for the 2009 Summer Festival.
Dubrovnik is one of the most dynamic cities in Croatia to visit during July and August. The reason of course, is that this is when the famous Dubrovnik Summer Festival takes place – now in its 60th year!
Originally this festival was meant to showcase the very finest Croatian talent in the arts. But over time, it’s become much more of an international event, featuring some of the world’s best musicians and performers – and a few undiscovered gems. This year, you’ll enjoy world class music, theatre, dance and folklore in more than 70 venues!

Hotels for the Dubrovnik Summer Festival:
If you’re lucky enough to be in Croatia for any part of this festival, be sure to stay at a great hotel in Dubrovnik.
We think accommodation can make or break a trip – so we’ll only recommend the best.
Probably the best hotel in Dubrovnik is Excelsior Hotel and Spa.
This “local landmark” is located in the heart of the golden-walled city, and will certainly be close to all of the action.
The Excelsior is located right on the water, so not only will you be close to all of the festival’s events, you’ll actually get a fantastic view along one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines while you’re at it!
Another thing to note about the Excelsior is that they have a special relationship with Kiwi Collection, which means people who book their stay through this website will get special VIP treatment and other amenities.
For example, guests who book a junior suite receive a complimentary bottle of wine and flowers and a fruit basket upon their arrival. (Now that’s arriving in style!)
Featuring 152 rooms, 13 junior suites, four deluxe suites and a presidential suite, you’ll be sure to find a room type that suites your needs during your stay in Dubrovnik. We love the furnishings in the room which are topped off with original paintings by renowned Croatian artists.
Room rates for this hotel range from 210 to 620 Euros depending on the room size.
