Festival of Saint Blaise
The Festival of Saint Blaise, patron saint of Dubrovnik, is a thousand-year tradition that includes a festive procession through the city’s ancient streets as well as a series of concerts, exhibitions and theatre performances dedicated to the saint. On the day of the Feast of St. Blasius, mass is celebrated in the church of St. Blasius, from which a festive procession starts its passage through the streets of the old city.
The festivity of the Dubrovnik patron, a day which reminds us that the saint protecting Dubrovnik in the palm of his hand eternally watches over its freedom, was placed on the UNESCO List of Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2009.
