Dubrovnik – Digital Nomad Friendly destination
Dubrovnik – Digital Nomad Friendly destination

In the midst of the increasing popularisation of remote work, a global trend that started even earlier and soared in popularity with the pandemic, Dubrovnik is a very attractive destination for digital nomads. Thanks to its historical and touristic attributes and Mediterranean location, as well as the projects of the Dubrovnik Tourist Board and the City of Dubrovnik, as well as the introduction of visas for digital nomads in Croatia, Dubrovnik has become a truly Digital Nomad Friendly destination.

When the project to introduce visas for digital nomads was launched in Croatia in 2020, with the aim of popularising and better positioning Croatia as an ideal destination for digital nomads, the conference "Dubrovnik for digital nomads" was organised in Dubrovnik as part of the European Freelancer Week 2020. It was the largest annual event focused on independent remote work up until then, and it crystallised that for the development of this type of business tourism, in addition to an attractive destination, it is important to offer better long-term rental opportunities, greater engagement of the local community and global promotion.

Accordingly, the project "The Dubrovnik digital nomad-in-residence" was launched, organised by the City of Dubrovnik and the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, in cooperation with Total Croatia News and Saltwater Nomads. During the competition held in March 2021, among 115 registered candidates, 10 digital nomads were selected and given the opportunity to explore Dubrovnik for a month and share their experiences and contribute to its worldwide promotion.

In May 2022, the conference "Work. Place. Culture.", which aimed to further highlight Dubrovnik on the list of destinations for digital nomads, as well as all the projects that were developed and realised with the aim of attracting such visitors. The conference gathered around 100 participants from all over the world, with distinguished lecturers and workshop leaders who spoke about trends and changes in business on the world market.

Dubrovnik Long Stay - all information for digital nomads in one place

As a continuation of numerous activities related to the development of Dubrovnik as a destination for digital nomads, the Dubrovnik Long Stay website was presented this year. Intended for all those who work remotely and stay in one place for a long time, but also for all those who plan a longer stay in Dubrovnik, this page offers all the necessary information in one place. Starting with accommodation, restaurants, activities and attractions, all the way to the best locations for work, co-working spaces or legal regulations.

In order to complete this project, the Dubrovnik Tourist Board, in cooperation with the City of Dubrovnik, is planning a special Nomad City Card - a card that will provide digital nomads with various benefits during their stay in Dubrovnik. This card will allow them to enter many Dubrovnik attractions, from the iconic Dubrovnik city walls to galleries, but also discounts in restaurants and shops, and even for bus tickets.

All these activities are aimed at creating an active community of digital nomads in Dubrovnik, as well as positioning Dubrovnik as an ideal destination for work and longer stays. The results are more than visible because on the world scale in May 2022, Dubrovnik was placed among the top 10 most desirable cities for digital nomads.
