Old Town

Attraction Details

There are many great things worth seeing in the Old Town and all are within walking distance. The best way to experience Dubrovnik Old Town, its history, and the local lifestyle is to join the History Of Dubrovnik Tour!

To get the best view of the town and of the Adriatic sea, take a stroll around the City Walls Of Dubrovnik. You should spend most of your time walking around the walls. In the small medieval space bisected by the 300-meter-long Stradun, you may flow between the two main gates of Ploče and Pile, guided by the list of places on the maroon flags.

Stradun is free of traffic until you reach the bus-choked hub outside the Pile Gate. Beyond, over the bridge, stand the Lovrijenac Fortress, used for productions of Shakespeare classics during the Summer Festival.

Back inside the city walls is the central square and intersection point of Luža, where you’ll find Orlando’s Column where all state documents were delivered out to the residents, and the Small Onofrio’s fountain.

Luža Square is surrounded by the main historical attractions: Sponza Palace, Rector’s Palace, Dubrovnik Cathedral, and Saint Blaise Church.
