This place is great example of the local architecture. It was good to wander through and read about some of the lical history. There was also a photo exhibition about the croatian war. Good to pass some time and learn a bit about the area.

We used our 24 hour Dubrovnik Card to enter this attraction for "free" (otherwise 70 kuna). Our 15 minute walk through the 3 to 4 spacious, bright and airy rooms allowed us to see the living quarters of a wealthy family of Dubrovnik. Around the perimeter of some of the rooms were recovered Louis XIV chairs. Another room displayed carrying... More

A combination of great building - one we had passed a few times from the outside. But it was on our list to visit, and the impressive entrance was matched by the variety of things to see inside. We found ourselves learning more about the Ragusan republic the longer we stayed in there, and the rooms were well set out.... More

Art works and artefacts, old dungeons the kids could explore and a fascinating and poignant photo exhibit of the 1990s conflict. Purchased the 9 visit multi museum ticket valid for a week. Perfect for dipping in to different venues and escaping the sun and heat.

OK, this review is really based on the experience we had when we first arrived. The courtyard is beautiful but when we tried to purchase tickets they only take Croatian currency (Kuna)! They do not take credit cards or Euro which is incredible because everywhere else does. There was a ton of people standing around but no one in the... More

The Rector's Palace also known as the Knezev Dvor. This is close to the Town Hall formerly the palace of the Major Council. This a large outstanding monument of secular architecture in the whole of the Adriatic coast. It is now the Cultural History Museum. Payment to enter costs £8.

If you are museum lover don't miss it, along Stradun and a reminder of the city's independence, nice place to visit and walk along during night time.

We visited the Palace as part of our seven day Dubrovnik visitors card and got in free. I think the cost is 100 kn but there is a lot to see inside. All the rooms are laid out in period furniture painting etc and show the history of Dubrovnik. We were lucky to buy tickets to see the Dubrovnik Orchestra... More

Definitely worth a visit as the building and the contents tell you so much about the city and its governance. Also of interest is a collection of photographs taken during the 'Homeland War' that show how the citizens of Dubrovnik suffered in this conflict (this exhibition is located in a long tunnel which you enter by going through a door...
