If you chose March for your visit to Dubrovnik, you might not experience the full potential of this destination when it comes to summer activities, but you will surely have lots to see and do! Here are some events that might interest you.
Star Wars shooting
If you see Storm troopers and Darth Vader walking around the streets of Dubrovnik, it’s because the shooting of Episode VIII of famous movie saga Star Wars takes place here 9th until 16th of March. The whole city looks more like a film studio than an ancient culture center. Even if you’re not a fan of Star Wars, being part of this will surely make your visit to Dubrovnik unforgettable.
Mercedes Global Training
You might not be bath in the sea or spend days at the beach if you’re visiting Dubrovnik in March, but what might make up for it is the fact you’ll be able to be among the first ones to see the newest Mercedes E-Class! Mercedes Benz is holding its Global Training here in Dubrovnik and on that occasion there are cars exhibited on the main street Stradun. If you’re lucky, you might be able to even sit behind the wheel of one of them during the open days.

Not all major cultural events take place during summer! If you’re a fan of classical music, you should definitely go to a Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra concert.

Opera fans should go to a Lenten Concert that will take place on March 19th in the Cathedral at 7.30 PM. Tickets can be bought at the entrance.
One of the favorite sports for locals is surely waterpolo which is why these games are usually followed by an incredible atmosphere with loud cheering.
