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.

This is you first look at the Old Grad Dubrovnik after entering the Pile Gate. Truthfully the vendors of goods and food here are probably not as good nor as good for value and variety as the ones in the alleys. The alleys have signs telling you what is there which is helpful. The Stadlun itself is magnificent vista of... More

Strudum and Pile Gate will be a busy-crush in summer maybe nicer to visit in springtime and autumn..locals suggest! Cannot truly say its much 'special over xmas December..very clean paving..can be slippery.. a fair few shops are sealed up (owners away) paper in windows..that was disappointing! Rule out the idea of cosmopolitan-restaurants, in winter 3 minths..although a tiny sushi was... More

It was really nice walking along the streets of this ancient looking old town. So many cafes and shops to choose from. I bought a nice pair of Croatian style earrings that I really like. In hindsight, I wish I'd bought the necklace to go along with it. Nice place to visit.

Anyone who visits the Old City of Dubrovnik will walk along Stradun several times during their stay. Lined with cafes, gift shops, restaurants and bars it is perhaps nicer to wander off the main thoroughfare simply to get away from the hordes of cruise passengers. We far preferred Stradun in the evening as the crowds had thinned drastically and the... More

What a beautiful place to visit, although it was hectic if you arrived at the same time as the visitors from the cruise ships. Do a walk round the walls as the views are spectacular. The stradun was immaculately clean and the side streets are lovely with loads of little shops, bars and restaurants.

It was fun walking this famous street, however, the smaller side streets were even more interesting. We found many shops to buy delightful gifts. We found a steep side street that we walked and found and ate at a very typical restaurant (black squid resotto).
