This is the main thoroughfare through the old town. It's a must-walk during your visit to Dubrovnik. Walk in the morning before it is packed with people and you will enjoy the spaciousness.

You will love walking around this area, with its polished marble street and lovely shops lining the sides. An amazing place to visit.

It is the hottest summer in generations and we walked down Stradun at 11 am. Despite the heat and crowds this is a beautiful Main Street. No vehicles just people and stunning old buildings being used as they should and not roped off like museum pieces. Lovely

Only worth visiting before the cruise ships arrive. After that it is packed. Food is average and more expensive than the (much better) food in the narrow streets either side that run parallel. Go along it once and get your photographs, and an ice cream - delicious - then stick to meandering around the back streets and the Old Port.

The town of Old Dubrovnik bustles with tourists and locals alike. This particular thoroughfare offers shopping of all kinds, restaurants and taverns to sit and sip a cool drink. The main drag of the city, you'll see people from all walks of like here!

We stayed at hotel just off the Placs. It was delightful, with a roof top breakfast area. The street itself is beautiful: worn marble paving slabs. The parallel side streets are set out with outdoor restaurants eating in the summmer/early fall. A great historic strioll to the harbor.

The gelateria towards the Pile gate makes fabulous ice cream but is busy and we found the other little shops serving similar flavours were just as good. The ATMs are to be found here as well as the Post Office. The restaurants and cafes tend to be expensive and busy although good for people watching. Wander down the little alley... More

So many stores (tee shirts, key chains, oil) and restaurants. Very touristy. Wide street, polished with age, the store road, wet from a slight shower was somewhat slippery. Stepped on the cracks and felt more secure. Many people getting snacks and ice creams. Attractions fill up late in the day as the temperatures soared. If you really want to see... More

Fantastic architecture welcomes you as walk in and the narrow cobbled side streets keep you captivated until the end of the street!

You'll feel like you've stepped back in time walking down the Stradun. It's the main road through Old Town lined with shops, restaurants, and beautiful architecture with a wonderful history to share.
