Dubrovnik is covered with statues of St Blaise. Here is his church. I have happy memories of attending Mass in French here in 1980. it is not open as much as other churches so you need to check opening times or grab your moment as we did. Baroque and, movingly, damaged during the 1991 bombardment, it is a landmark on... More

On the far eastern end kitty corner to the bell tower, and with the statue of Orlando out front. This church to the patron saint of Dubrovnik is beautiful inside and out. Always collects a crowd in the plaza out front

This eighteenth century church was reconstructed on the former church site some years after the original was damaged in the 1667 earthquake. The church has a special place in the history of Dubrovnik and this affords it a great spot in the main square. Architecturally simple the added sculptures and carvings are beautiful meaning this church is not lost in... More

This is a beautiful church with notable Baroque decorations which make it a nice place to sit and enjoy the quiet atmosphere. However, it has very strict opening hours so if you want to see more of it, check for its opening times. The guide book that I had with me was saying that on the main altar of this... More

The exterior I feel is not the most striking but the interior is the most noteworthy in Dubrovnik. There are music event and it is a functioning church. The interior has a little more insed than the rest of Dubrovnik. See the pictures included. The churches also are a nice place to rest but during the cruise ship rush these... More

While visiting Dubrovnik we happened upon the church while mass was being conducted (in English). After mass I had my throat blessed as is custom since St Blaise is the patron saint for protecting one against throat illnesses (as well as the patron saint of the city). We then toured this very beautiful church.

While I was always aware of St Blaise and had my throat blessed each February on his Feast Day. I never recognised that he was also the patron saint of Dubrovnik - Saint Vlahu. This is a beautiful Church which was built at the beginning of the 18th Century to replace the Church that was destroyed by an earthquake. I... More

This is a really beautiful church. There are always lots of people loitering on the steps, that's fine though; it can be a great place to sit and have a snack. It's worth checking out in Dubrovnik since it only takes a minute.
