This is the main street and it is lined with beautiful archetecture, shops, restaurants, churches... I cant believe how clean it is. It is very safe and no annoying touts. the locals are very friendly. make sure you go exploring the little alley ways. bring lots of water and comfortable shoes as there are a lot of steps when exploring.

Exceptionally clean . What a change! Restaurants and bars to sit and watch the world go by. Some with outdoor heaters and rugs to let you sit out into the night. Very friendly.

This is the main thoroughfare within the walled city. It is lined with small shops and cafes selling curios and craft work by local artists as well as souvenirs. The street has many side roads running off from it with more eateries and shops. As we were there off season it was very quiet but still atmospheric and I should... More

this is a central road of the castle-city, it is washed by hand daily at 4-5 am and thus it feel like a scene prepared for ballet performance - so shiny and absolutely surreal! try to slide on it - feel childish ))) for those shopoholics- stradun is loaded with small shops, but the area is too pricy. try just...

Avoid the cafés along Stradun was the advice from a local - not sure that this is fair, but you must choose for yourself. Distressing was the dog poo regularly deposited by unaccompanied canine friends. A fact of life in Dubrovnik old town we guess - shame.

At the time of our visit to Dubrovnik, Stradun was nearly always very quiet, but we can imagine what it must be like in the summer. However on the Saturday we had used the cable car to the top of Srd Hill and could hear loudspeakers and see crowds down below. So when we descended we went to Stradun to... More

The Stradum is only about two American blocks long. It is lined with small local shops selling everything one could think of. What surprised us most was how CLEAN everything was. Not a stray piece of paper blowing about! It is safe and delightful to wander down at night as the whole city lights up!
