Woman Selling Embroidery in Dubrovnik, Croatia

If a town caters to tourists then you can bet there are plenty of shopping options and Dubrovnik is no exception. The stores range from designer boutiques to inexpensive souvenir shops. But if you want to sample something regional, look for Bajadera chocolate or a biscuit named Paprenjak. For something stronger, try Komovica or Slivovitz liquors. And if you really want to support the locals, then approach the Croatian women wearing the traditional white dresses near the port. They are often selling lovely, handmade embroidery.
