Police said the 22-year-old barman was pouring cocktails and poured alcohol over the bar to add to the spectacle. But when he lit the cocktails the flames exploded, injuring five people.

All five were taken to a local hospital by ambulance, with one Australian receiving serious burns. He was transported to KBC Split, a regional hospital in the Adriatic port of Split.

It is understood the New Zealand tourist, aged 23, had been released as his wounds were not serious.

Police have reportedly filed a criminal complaint against the barman.

Meanwhile a 27-year-old Kiwi woman was seriously injured after falling from a wall in Dubrovnik.

The town is recognisable as King's Landing in the TV series Game of Thrones, with high stone walls making it a picturesque photo spot.

The woman is believed to be recovering in Dubrovnik General Hospital. Hospital staff said her injuries were not life-threatening.
