Published , by

We’re often asked ‘what are the must-see things in Dubrovnik?’, so we’ve put together this list of the top 10 sights in this stunning city along with a photo gallery to whet your appetite for visiting this lovely part of the world.

  1. Stradun, Placa – Main stone paved street of the city and still the center of the action, polished by so many footsteps that it looks like marble.
  2. City Walls – The city of Dubrovnik is completely surrounded with walls and forts, including the Old Port.
  3. Franciscian Monastery, Old Town – Inside is the Pharmacy dating from the 14th century(the oldest in Europe) and a gorgeous cloister.
  4. Sponza Palace, Old Town – Originally built as a customs house in 1516. Now it functions as the State Archive. On the ground floor is the Museum of the Dubrovnik defenders.
  5. Rector’s Palace, Old Town – Built in the 15th century for Dubrovnik’s ruler, the elected Rector, now a museum.
  6. St. Blaise church, Old Town – Dedicated to Dubrovnik’s patron saint.
  7. Cathedral, Old Town – This Baroque Cathedral was built in 18th century, after  an earthquake destroyed the original. Inside there is a Treasury with lot of interesting exhibits.
  8. Dominican Monastery, Old Town – Gorgeous courtyard with museum housing Dubrovnik’s historical artefacts.
  9. Lokrum Island The island is a 15 minute boat ride from the Old Town City harbor. As well as many peaceful coves Lokrum also boasts a Botanical Garden and, keeping with the monastic theme, a Benedictine Monastery.
  10. Mount Srđ The highest point above Dubrovnik, with breathtaking views. Take the cable car or for the adventurous, hike all the way up.
