The St. Blaise Holiday – the patron saint of Dubrovnik, on February 03rd, is 1043 years old tradition celebrating the Day of the City of Dubrovnik. The Public City Awards Ceremony is held in honor of the Day of the City of Dubrovnik.
HYMN TO ST. BLAISE
Now let us unfold the banner
Let us all kneel before the altar
Let the days of the glorious past be reborn today.
When the cliffs of Dubrava were a temple to freedom
The enchanted poem to the saint was composed by waves on rock.
St. Blaise, hear the voice of our prayer.
Protect your Dubrovnik protect us all.
With fluttering banners and the sound of festive bells
A hymn of long-ago freedom is sung to you by a grateful populace.
Music: Rade Ivelio Lyrics: Dr. Vinko Vilić
