The Placa is a nice street that is pleasant in the early morning and then evening and after. During the day it is very crowded and might best be avoided--which is easy to do as the side streets to the west are usually not crowded even at mid-day. The street runs from near the Old Harbor to the Pile Gate.... More

If you want to stroll without being encumbered by tour groups or distracted tourists, come first thing in the morning. All of the stores open by 10AM but some open at 9AM (Konzum - mini mart opens earlier) so there is less reason for people to come early. In the morning, the air is still fresh, the light peeks through... More

Im not sure if it is the most beautiful street in the world but still it really is lovely. It is a wide thoroughfare with many narrow streets going off. These are full of little cafes, very welcoming and atmospheric. In the main thoroughfare the shops are full of souvenirs and dare I say it - tat! There are a... More

I enjoyed Stradun more at night when everything looks so much more atmospheric and romantic! Fewer people to crowd the street as well. That said, if you're only in town for the day this is the place for strolling in the old town. Prices are higher in the old town than outside the walls, but you'll have plenty of atmosphere.

The whole thing was just so lovely whatever the time of night or day. If possible, would avoid when the cruise ships in as like a swarm of bees.

The title says it all. Combined with the old city of Dubrovnik, the history it represents, the authenticity around it and the fact that Game of Thrones is being filmed there... says a lot. If you don't believe me, visit Dubrovnik and reply.

This is a happening place. Everybody walks through here. It can be crowded, but it's a great place to get a gelato, or stop at one of the many outdoor seating areas of bars, cafes, and restaurants for people watching. There are an abundance of shops lining the street as well as some ancient attractions.
