Dubrovnik Travel Guide

Dubrovnik Shopping

Shopping in Dubrovnik may not come close to other European cities, but this little Adriatic jewel offers a unique shopping experience of its own. The Stradun is a great place to start where little shops can be found lining this marble-paved street, but the best bargains can be found down the maze of pokey side streets leading off the Stradun. For those who love a good shopping mall, head to the Lapad Shopping Center in Lapad where all the usual international chain stores can be found. Or take a trip to the Old Town for the best variety of shopping. Most locals organise trips to Italy a few times a year to stock up on the latest fashion, but some local designer boutiques can be found in the Old Town where fashionistas are guaranteed to pick up original designs, but be prepared to pay a pretty penny. Many local markets boast Dubrovnik''s finest bounty where interesting souvenirs can be bought such as embroidered tablecloths and linen, Dalmation wine, spirits (known as ), and delicious preserves and dried fruit, all beautifully packaged. The morning market at Gunduliceva Sqaure is great for souvenirs, while the morning market at Gruz is great for fresh local produce. Most shops are open Monday to Friday from9am to 8pm and Saturdays from 9am to 4pm, but during the tourist season, many shops keep longer hours. A VAT of 18.5% is added onto all non-essential products and services purchased in Croatia. Tourists can reclaim tax on purchases to the value of HRK501 or more on departure of Croatia. Tax back forms can be collected at points of purchase and should be filled out and stamped at the store.
