Dubrovnik’s famous City Walls could soon be open for night tours, it was revealed at a press conference this week.
Dubrovik’s top tourist attraction, the City Walls, which in October welcomed its one millionth visitor, close for walks during the summer tourist season just before sunset (19:30), but mayor Andro Vlahušić says that organised tours of the City Walls at night could be a possibility next year.
Vlahušić says that the City is prepared to step up its safety features which will allow night tours to take place. The idea of opening up the Walls for tours at night has been mooted before.
The Dubrovnik Times says that night tours of the iconic City Walls have not materialised as yet ‘mainly due to safety concerns’.
“The Walls include hundred of steps and the safety of visitors when walking at night has to be a concern, especially as the walls aren’t lit”.
“In agreement with the Ministry of the Interior we would propose installing security and thermal cameras on sections of the walls to ensure maximum safety”, said Vlahušić, adding that Red Cross are willing to provide staff members to be present on the walls.
