Top 5 Events in February – Dubrovnik 2020
Don’t miss our Top 5 Events in February in Dubrovnik from 01/02/2020. to 29/02/2020.
1. Festivity of Saint Blaise
Where? Church of Saint Blaise, Dubrovnik
Since the year 972, on the 3rd of February, the Day of the Festivity of St. Blaise, people in Dubrovnik open wide the door to the City, while the flight of white doves marks the opening of the Festivity and reminds everyone of the value of freedom – the greatest treasure of Dubrovnik Republic. You can see the programme here.
The celebration of Dubrovnik’s patron is special and unique in Dubrovnik. It begins on Our Lady of Candles or Candlemas on the 2nd of February when white doves, a symbol of freedom and peace, are released in front of the saint’s church and by the raising of Blaise’s banner in the central place of the Old City – upon Orlando’s Column. In this time Dubrovnik is full of mimosas, daffodils, and true, sunny spring days. The people of Dubrovnik have worshiped St. Blaise as their patron saint, or just their Patron, since the second half of the 10th century.
Indeed, while other cities have their patron saint, in Dubrovnik it is the Saint that has his own City. Proof of this is found in the fact that the Festivity of St. Blaise is on UNESCO’s list of the world’s Intangible Cultural Heritage.
