However, with these milder temperatures, the snows on the nearby hills begin to thaw, meaning that you can visit national parks such as Krka and Plitvice Lakes, both of which contain beautiful waterfalls famed for their distinctive colours of azure, green, grey and blue.
Temperatures and weather conditions are also suitable for you to hike into the hills and see the local wildlife.
The carnival also gets underway during March, and depending on the religious calendar there are also a number of celebrations for Holy Week leading up to Easter.
The streets are filled with people in costumes and masks, singing, dancing, and having a good time, and they implore you to join them!
As with most public celebrations in Dubrovnik, the stradun, or main street, in the picturesque medieval walled city is definitely the best place to be.
