We spent a week in Dubrovnik and loved every day! the Stradun is a lively place, bustling with lots to see and experience. Every little alley provides new surprises, like Dolce Vitas Gelato and Creperie, a worthy stop for your daily gelato needs. :)

Wide and shiny! The 300 metre Stradun (on Goggle maps - "Placa ul") runs right across the town linking the east and west gates. We were there over the Easter weekend (April 2015) so although busy at times we did not experience the crowds that form when the cruise ships are in port. It is spotlessly clean - no chewing...

This is the main drag of Dubrovnik and the way most people enter. There are shops and historic places of interest all along here including a monastery and pharmacy with museum, a cathedral, a palace, and a great gelato place.

A nice amble along a wide old street with wonderful views up the steep side streets. It's probably more interesting to stray away from the main thoroughfare but Dubrovnik old town is small enough to walk down the Stradun, one side street to the left, down the other to the right and then back up the Stradun again. Although we... More

The Stradun is only about 300 meters long, but the polished rock streets and buildings are very interesting to view; reminded me of Venice. Definitely something you must do if visiting Dubrovnik.

From the Pile Gate at the west to the Bell Tower and harbour at he east, a delightful street unspoilt by signage and traffic. An intriguing character - at once imposing but at the same time intimate, narrow side streets and stepped alleyways beckon at every step.

We were struck, despite the number of tourists, by how clean Dubrovnik's main marbled thoroughfare (Stradun) is. It is flanked on either side by an array of restaurants, bars and small shops and although the number of visitors in early April is comparitively low, we still enjoyed arriving early (8.30) and having the place almost to ourselves!

The most exciting part for me was being where scenes from Game of Thrones had been filmed. Holy cow. The marble streets...streets of marble, really?...are exquisite, impressive, and stunning. Never walked anywhere like this before in my life, and it's pop culture connection just put it over the top for me. Once in a lifetime experience and since I was... More

Been there for many times, even in the hottest days of the year and always the same question; is it really impossible to put some jardiniere planted with an olive tree? To make a shade, and to put some green in the stone...to make an event...whatever...
