Additionally, the weather has a borderline humid subtropical climate which is typical of the Mediterranean. The city is hot and muggy, moderately dry in summers, and mild and wet in winters. The Bora wind blows cold gusts down the Adriatic coast between October and April.

Recent History

During World War II, Dubrovnik was occupied by the Italian army and then by the German military after 8 September 1943. In October 1944, Yugoslav Partisans seized Dubrovnik, arresting more than 300 citizens and executing 53 without trial. This shocking event came to be known as the Daksa Massacre, named after the small island on which it occurred. Communist leadership lasted over the next several years, political prosecutions were commonplace, culminating during April 1947 with the incarceration of more than 90 Dubrovnik citizens.

October 1991

After the break-up of Yugoslavia, Dubrovnik was occupied and besieged by Serbian and Montenegrin soldiers. The siege of Dubrovnik lasted for seven months. An artillery attack during December 1991 resulted in the death of 19 people and left 60 people wounded. According to The Croatian Red Cross, the total number of fatal casualties in the conflict would total 114 civilians.  Among them was the poet, Milan Milišić.

Foreign news organisations were criticised for placing more attention on the old town’s damage than human casualties. The artillery attacks on Dubrovnik damaged 56% of its buildings to some degree. The Croatian Army finally lifted the siege in May 1992, and at the end of that year, it liberated Dubrovnik’s and the surrounding area. However, danger continued for the city. Terrorist attacks by the JNA continued for another three years.
