Highlights of the week: basketball legend Magic Johnson returns to Dubrovnik!

Magic Johnson’s visit to Dubrovnik means he has kept his promise to return to the city. Johnson visited Croatia in the summer of last year. As he strolled through Dubrovnik’s main street, Stradun, he told a member of the media that he found the place beautiful and would return. Not even a year has passed, and he is again seen smiling with his wife, Cookie, on one of the most beautiful streets in Croatia.

It’s unclear if Johnson will continue the trip to other parts of the country like he did last year. The low number of guests on the streets of Dubrovnik seems to attract many wealthy tourists who do their best to avoid the beautiful crowded destinations.
