Dubrovnik Summer Festival, Dubrovnik
Tel: 385 20 326 100
Concierge.com's insider take:
For seven weeks each summer, you can soak up some culture along with the Adriatic sunshine, when world-class musical, dance, and dramatic acts (James Galway, the Leipzig String Quartet, the Croatian National Ballet) flock to outdoor stages all over Dubrovnik. Be warned: The crowds can be maddening; purchase tickets in advance.
