All tourists use Stradun Street as it is the main pedestrian walkway from Pile Gate to the harbor area where most of the town's attractions are located. Fortunately, it is wide enough to funnel these crowds of people during busy times while in the evening it can look quite bare. I could walk from its start to end, without window... More

Really lovely walking street, would recommend that you go in the morning or early evening to avoid some of the crowds and heat

My family and I visited wife's sister and her family. Again, we were astonished with the beauty of the Stradun and thw whole Dubrovnik old city. Not wonders this city is one of the most recognasible places to visit in Croatia - it desreves it 100%!

This avenue is another must see when visiting the gorgeous city of Dubrovnik. Many shops for tourists including a Pirate sweet shop and a Croatian style Greggs (which is lush). The walk is 10 mins max however it will take longer as there are many shops to pop into. Myadvice is to dive into the side streets for the real... More

The street is beautiful and there are lots of cafes and restaurants. The experience is only marred by the number of tourists. Go late in the evening after dark for the best feel

It is a must to take the cable car to get a good view of Dubrovnik. There is also a restaurant at the top where you can enjoy a cup of coffee while you enjoy the lovely view.

This is the main way through the town. It houses the oldest pharmacy and many other quaint places of interest. Very busy and, because its largely enclosed, it is stiflingly hot.

The main street that joins both the two main entrances to the 9Old Town at Ploce in the East and the Pilecin the West. The name comes from the Italian strada meaning street. Made up of limestone flags and uniform baroque buildings that line it. A very busy walk way that divides into narrow streets on either side.

We strolled from one end to the other and enjoyed ourselves immensely. The side streets going uphill are also enchanting.
