St.Nicolas' Day, the Day of Dubrovnik defenders, and the Seamen Day

St.Nicolas' Day, the Day of Dubrovnik defenders, and the Seamen Day Milo Kovač

The St. Nicholas Holiday on December 6th is the Day of the Dubrovnik Defenders and the Seamen Day.

 This is a day that recalls the greatest devastation of Dubrovnik suffered on December 06, 1991, inflicted by the Serbo-Montenegrin aggression during the Homeland War, as well as the successful defense of the front lines on Mount Srđ and in Sustiepan, which brought about a turning point in the war in the Dubrovnik region.

On this day, the City od Dubrovnik commemorates the dead, the wounded and their families, particularly the local Dubrovnik defenders, who together with the aid of the best of Croatia's sons helped defend and free the homeland during the Homeland War in Croatia.
