The Stradun is quite literally the first street you will come across after passing through the pile gate, marvel at the hustle and bustle, the heat and the jam packed tourists. I certainly miss wondering the cobbles!

You need to walk it at least once to see the sites, but once we did that, chose to walk on the inside streets to get from place to place as it was less crowded and easier to window shop.

if you like watching people passing by and relax, that's the place to be. It have few bars around to choose from, it's always busy but nice atmosphere out there, we like it. We went there at night as well and it was as busy as during the day, but we enjoy walking and having drinks out there.

You can get lovely photos of some of the monuments in the old town along this road and view from end to end is great but mainly it is full of tourist groups, ice cream parlours and overpriced souvenir shops.

In the heart of the old town, you'll find shops, restaurants and bars situated in a historical landscape. In the day time it's beautiful and busy but the nighttime offers so much more!

The stradun is a magical place especially at dusk when the lights are coming on and the swallows are flying around before they settle for the night. Not to mention the smells from the restaurants and the general buzz. Love it!

The Stradun does get a little busy during the day, but it is kept in exceptionally good order. It has some nice - not too touristy shops - selling local produce and ice-cream (which is the main reason to go :). There are a few cafes towards the end of the Stradun (away from the Pile gate). In my opinion... More

A beautiful walled city. Marble floors and beautiful architecture houses a range of shops that sell souvenirs. Pedestrianised, you can browse at your leisure. We also enjoyed having coffee and watching the world go by. Unfortunately it is not very accessible with lots of steps and narrow streets. Check out the steep, stairs that make some of the streets with... More

The Stradun is the heart of Dubrovnik's old town. It can get horribly crowded with cruise ship tourists on day trips in July and August. It is a nice place to sit, relax and watch the others rush by. You get a fantastic view of the street from the city walls. At one end is Onofrio Fountain, where city walks... More

It's a street. You can't dress it up any other way. Bonuses: it's clean, traffic free, is a good way to orientate yourself & has the fountain at the end so you can get a drink. The not so good. It's crowded. But then Dubrovnik is. I thought it was a little boring...not much going on. Thought there would have... More
