This is a happening place. Everybody walks through here. It can be crowded, but it's a great place to get a gelato, or stop at one of the many outdoor seating areas of bars, cafes, and restaurants for people watching. There are an abundance of shops lining the street as well as some ancient attractions.

Those who have visited Las Vegas, will understand when I say that it was like visiting the Venetian or Bellagio. The Stradun, with its uniform buildings and green shutters, perfect blue sky and shiny stone path, just seems too perfect. During the day it is usually very crowded (depending on the number of visiting cruise ships); can be relatively quieter... More

Beautiful, neat and clean and bordered by many fine shops (o.k. a few souvenir shops as well), the Stadun is the place to see and be seen after a full day of sights, travel and sun. My wife said it could use some(more) greenery but, as is, it is amazing.

Runs up the middle of town , Pile Gate and Big Onofrios Fountain at one end and Orlando's Column at the other. Pedestrianised with overpriced tourist shops, plenty of eating places and a great atmosphere. Soak up the character of the place.

The beauty is in the buildings on either side and the space. The beast is in the masses and masses of people who make it a real hassle to navigate. But then I spose, that's European tourist destinations.

The gorgeous main street seems to be crafted of blindingly white marble (I think it is limestone actually) as if Gucci or Chanel had been briefed to create the most sumptous town centre I think Dubrovnik old town would be the end result. However it is sadly difficult to appreciate the beauty due to the literal hordes of people, many... More

Great place to people watch, shop, take in the history or stop for a beer or coffee. It was still a little crowded in early October so I can only imagine what high season is like.
