The tourist season is in full swing in July. Marinas are full of pleasure boats, beaches are crowded with sunbathers, ferries are full, hotels hang out the "no vacancy" sign and tourist offices work from dawn to nightfall dispensing information and solving problems. There are no shortage of daytime trips, activities and excursions plus a range of music and cultural festivals that attract locals and visitors. The most important ones are listed below but nearly all coastal and island towns have music in the evening.

FESTIVALS

No matter where you are, you can participate with the locals in festivals celebrating music, theatre, film or traditional culture. Nearly all islands and coastal towns present nightly music in the town square but there are some festivals that are true stand-outs.

Zagreb

International Folklore Festival

Despite the name, the accent here is on Croatian folklore from a variety of regions. From the traditional circle dance to puppet theatre, the festival provides a good overview of Croatia's rich cultural heritage and puts it in context by including a smattering of other European groups.

Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik Summer Festival

Dubrovnik has a long, respected tradition of producing classical musicians and many perform at this month-long festival along with prestigious international musical stars. In addition to the classics, theatre, dance, jazz and folklore ensembles keep the Old Town jumping nearly every night. Every year there's  the traditional production of Hamlet staged at Fort Lovrijenac. Heartthrob Goran Visnjic of "ER" fame once played the brooding prince there.

Motovun Film Festival

With dozens of films in five days, this festival is truly a movie freak's delight. There are no starlets, few paparazzi and there's no need to drag out a ball gown. Just enjoy the movies.F un and casual and with a program that gets better each year, this festival is a good excuse to visit Motovun.

Split

Split Summer Festival

This is a smorgasboard of delights with an emphasis on classical music, opera, art exhibitions and theatre. Many events are within Diocletian's Palace.

 

Zadar

Musical Evenings in St Donat

The ninth-century St Donat church is known for its acoustics. It's a wonderful environment for a mostly chamber-music festival. More information.

Pag Town

Pag Carnival

In the last days of July, Pag celebrates the local legend of a Pag slave girl by dressing up in traditional costumes, cooking traditional dishes, and dancing to old island tunes. More information.
