Stradun is the Main Street in the Old Town, but because there are restrictions on vehicles, you only have other people to content with. Good times are early morning and from the early evening onwards. I'd say the best time is early evening when it starts to get a bit cooler - the sound and sight of the swifts flying... More

Day or night, the Stradun is buzzing! Our first visit was in the evening and the lights sparkled, all the historic buildings were lit up and the Stradun was crowded, with people strolling along it, sitting at the many pavement eateries and generally enjoying the ambience. You might see traditional dancers, the changing of the Guards as they march along... More

The best way to experience the Old Town of Dubrovnik is by walking along this street and just taking everything in on either side. Taking in all the sights of the city, the buzz of all the people...busy but fantastic atmosphere!!

Stradun is the main street in the Old Town lined with shops and restaurants. It's beautiful marble pavements have been worn smooth by centuries of pedestrians (even the centre, which used to be a canal) and at sunset it lights up as the sun drops behind Pile Gate. But, because of all of this, it does get very busy and... More

Plenty of shops and restaurants on main street with dozens more up the many side streets. The side streets seem to have more reasonably priced menus. However, the further back you go the cheaper the food! Weekends can be busy when the cruise ships visit, but there's plenty to see with the odd concert thrown in.

Great variety of shops and restaurants accessible to all. The pavements can be very slippy as they are like polished marble so many people have visited this beautiful city

Main thoroughfare where most of the tourist shops and many restaurants are located. Take the time to explore the alleys that radiate from the Stradum where you find more unique shops and some of the locals selling handmade goods at a more reasonable price.

The best way to experience the Old Town is really by walking along this street and just seeing everything on either side, taking in all the sights of the city, but this also works in how it gradually funnels you towards the harbour whilst taking you past all the main sights. As main streets go, this is very attractive and... More
