A very interesting stat was just recently made public. According to the latest stats (late 2016) – exactly 1557 people live in Dubrovnik’s historic centre also known as “Old Town”.
The number of people living in Dubrovnik’s Old Town has been on the decline for quite some time. In 2011 – there were 2116 people living in the Old Town.
As Old Town is becoming a home to more and more restaurants, cafes and apartments – the local people are now mostly living outside the Old Town walls in the “newer” areas of Dubrovnik.
