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).

I could never tire of walking this street with its magnificent architecture and its incredible atmosphere. For a relatively uncrowded stroll visit early in the morning before the buses from the cruise ships arrive but the street becomes even more magical after dark, the street lamps reflect from the polished floor and swallows fly up and down between the buildings....

This is the heart of the old town. It's a long plaza, surrounded by shops, churches, etc. It's not really an attraction of its own, but you can't help but go through it, since "all roads lead to the Placa".

This is a charming street, with lots of shops and places to eat. There are a couple of really good ice cream shops, but the restaurants tend to be a block back on both sides, and there is plenty of choice. There is always something happening; we saw live music in front of St Blaise Church at the end several... More

The Placa is a nice street that is pleasant in the early morning and then evening and after. During the day it is very crowded and might best be avoided--which is easy to do as the side streets to the west are usually not crowded even at mid-day. The street runs from near the Old Harbor to the Pile Gate.... More

If you want to stroll without being encumbered by tour groups or distracted tourists, come first thing in the morning. All of the stores open by 10AM but some open at 9AM (Konzum - mini mart opens earlier) so there is less reason for people to come early. In the morning, the air is still fresh, the light peeks through... More
