Dubrovnik to fine shirtless tourists

The Dubrovnik City Council has adopted a new bylaw which will see tourists slapped with a HRK 1,000 (€133) fine for walking around shirtless or in their swim suits when they've left the beach.

The Council on Monday adopted amendments to the Decision on Municipal Order making it possible for the city authorities to fine tourist walking in old town Dubrovnik "in a swim suit or without their clothes or part of their clothes"

There will be signs at 3 entrances into the town – at Pile, Ploce and Buza – and anybody ignoring them will face being fined.

After a few dress code ‘incidents’ over the past few seasons, the local authorities have decided to regulate “good behaviour” for tourists and residents by introducing on the spot fines.
