In their article, named ‘When classical music goes wild: top 10 outdoor festivals’, they list our festival @ #8 place, with this description:
Harmonizing the unique atmosphere of Dubrovnik with the living spirit of drama and music is what defines the Dubrovnik Summer Festival. Events take place in squares, palaces, towers and parks throughout the city. Former capital of the maritime Republic of Ragusa, which reached its commercial peak in the 15th and the 16th centuries before being annexed by the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy in 1808, Dubrovnik has a very rich history, and this is reflected in its architecture with the Gothic-Renaissance Rector’s Palace where many concerts take place, the classical facade of St Blaise’s Church, and the world-famous medieval wall. Admirer of Dubrovnik George Bernard Shaw, who visited the city in 1929 said: ‘If you want to see heaven on earth, come to Dubrovnik.’
