🚨 Restaurant overcharging

1 person found this helpful

💬 Be aware of restaurants that overcharge for food and drinks. Tourists are often presented with a menu that has prices in Croatian Kuna, rather than in euros, and then charged euros at the end of the meal.

💡 Always check the prices carefully before ordering and double-check the bill at the end to make sure you are not being overcharged.

🚨 Pickpockets in crowded areas

💬 Be careful when travelling through Dubrovnik's narrow streets and in major tourist attractions as there are often pickpockets looking for an opportunity.

💡 Keep your valuables close to your body and be aware of your surroundings.

🚨 Fraudulent art sellers

💬 Tourists in Dubrovnik may be approached by people selling various art pieces as original paintings created by renowned Croatian artists. In some cases these pieces could be forged.

💡 Research the artist and make sure it is an official piece of art before taking a deal.
