Chock a block full of shops , restaurants, monuments, old buildings & structures and several ATM's , gotta love banks ! The Placa dissects the Old Town and you can turn either left or right (links/rechts) at any time and discover the real Dubrovnik but always easily return to the spot and head out to the old port .

The vibe of Dubrovnik starts here, connecting the north and south gates. Full of character, great to walk along at anytime of the day. So much history to admire from the beautiful buildings.

It's easy to find out where you are in Dubrovnik. The Stradun runs from the harbour at one end ,straight through to the other entrance of the Old Town, with street/ laneways running up the hills to the right and left. The Stradun is stunning, with its marble-like buildings and cobblestones which can be slippery when wet. Start exploring at... More

I loved this old street and the charm it has to offer. This street was always clean. Even after the new years concert. Please get rid of the tourist trap made in china shops and keep more shops open during the festive season. Had so much money to spend yet nothing was open.

Stradun, very lively street, many many people, in the army to go all you can find and buy, and the prices of everything are high. Be sure to try the food stalls on the street as well as coffee at the cathedral.

The Placa is the main street of Old Town Dubrovnik. A good view of this street can be seen while on top of the city walls which can be reached by taking a tour. Not to be missed photo opportunity.
