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...

This is the main thoroughfare of the old town and its difficult to see how any visit to Dubrovnik could avoid this walkway. The lack of vehicles make the place even more special and relaxing. It easy to imagine how this would have been centuries ago although we are grateful imagination doesn't include smell as the drainage/sewridge would have been... More

You're bound to end up in this street when you go through the old town centre of Dubrovnik. It's full of charming cafes with places to sit outside and cool off as well as churches, statues and souvenir shops but try to stay away from 10am to 4pm when the cruise goers are in town. Their groups make it almost... More

The Stradun is basically the main street of Dubrovnik's historic city centre. It is pedestrianized and made of shiny marble flagstones. The old town as a 'herringbone' design, with this street forming the backbone, and little streets running off at right angles on either side. If you come to Dubrovnik you can't avoid walking along here at some point, and... More

From the first sight of the Stradun, as soon as you walk below the arch of the lower gate of Pile you will be impressed of a town that lives in something that looks like taken from a tale about the midde age, all to the end of this 296 mt long main street of a completely pedestrian town, where...

It was really nice walking along the Stradun - especially at night with the lights - really romantic - not so many people in November, too!

Placa Ul is the main street, an elegant thoroughfare with shiny stone flags. We found an excellent cafe/Bar/Restaurant near the Franciscan Friary. Here's a tip. Return here as the lights go down and enjoy the floodlit elegance of it without the crowds. Even better at Christmas with the Christmas decorations.
