TOP FIVE: THE MOST FAMOUS SIGHTS IN DUBROVNIK
The Old Town of Dubrovnik is famous for its many sights, and you could spend two or three days roaming around and discovering everything it has to offer. But if you don’t have too much time, or you just want to see the most popular sights, these five are the ones you shouldn’t miss if you ever find yourself in Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik City Walls
Built from the 13th to the 17th century, Dubrovnik City Walls are the most famous sight of the city. It is a series of defensive stone walls surrounding the city of Dubrovnik and, together with the Old Town of Dubrovnik, the Walls joined the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. Long almost two kilometers, they offer a wonderful experience and walking down the Walls of Dubrovnik is a must-do thing when visiting the city.
The cloister of Franciscan Monastery is one of the most beautiful places to visit inside the Old Town of Dubrovnik. It offers valuable museum exhibits, is home to centuries old pharmacy, as well as one of the richest old libraries in Croatia, which makes this place a must-see location for everyone.
Stradun is the main street in the old town and a place you must visit if you want to feel the spirit of the city and experience everything it has to offer. A walk along Stradun is a great idea because of various other sights and monuments you can see along the way, and if you find yourself here, remember that this used to be a sea that divided the city into two parts – and that makes the walk even more unique.
Last, but not least on the list is the Dubrovnik Cathedral built in the Baroque style. Situated on the main square, it is the biggest church in the Old Town, with nice interior and numerous old religious paintings. It was built in the 17th century, and it is a place you must visit if you love art, architecture, and history.
