Shopping guide to the best shops and what to buy in Dubrovnik for passengers on a cruise to the port of Dubrovnik in 2022: local crafts, souvenirs and gifts, wines, chocolates, open air markets and international brands

Update: May 23, 2023

Shopping in Dubrovnik is pretty much all geared for the visiting tourist, but if you really look around you can find some unique items at local boutiques in the Old Town. From paintings by local artists to wines from the area you can find them everywhere.


  1. Boutique Croata
  2. Dubrovačka Kuća
  3. Kraš Chocolates
  4. Maria (Fashion)
  5. Medusa Gifts
  6. Michal Negrin
  7. Open Air Market
  8. Ronchi Hats

One thing that Dubrovnik is known for is embroidery, and the best place to find it is in the region of Konavle located between Dubrovnik and Cavtat, but as the cruise traveler meanders the Old Town stumbling upon locals selling embroidery is inevitable.

If you are seeking handmade jewelry, Swarovski crystal or famous brands, the place to go is right on the main street of the Old City where you will find shops like Benetton and Max Mara. For those looking for more competitive prices, try some of the shops on the side streets off the Placa - Stradum. Also, you might want to check out the daily market on the Gundulić Square

Editor's picks

Dubrovnik is bustling with shops, in particular, in the walled Old Town. The shops below were all reviewed by the Editor along many years and on the most recent visit to Dubrovnik in June 2018.

Boutique Croata
Tie's Galore

In the country where the Neck Tie was invented it would be impossible not have a shop exclusively dedicated to this accessory. Here you will find an excellent selection of silk ties in presentation boxes and will be invited to get acquainted with the “History of the Tie”.
