If you have to choose between this and the Franciscan monastery, go for this one. Both have lovely atrium courtyards but thus has better and more impressive artworks and musemn exhibits.

For just 30kn you can sit down in the tranquil surroundings of the Dominican Monastery and forget about the tourist hordes outside. The monastery is tucked into the north east corner of the old town. There are great views down into it's cloisters from the nearby city wall. As you enter, check out the bannisters leading up to the entrance,... More

Not as busy as the Franciscan Monastery at the other end of Stradun, the Dominican Monastery is a lovely peaceful retreat. The cloister is calm and there is some in interesting art work in the side galleries. There are also some bizarre reliquaries on display. Worth visiting for a break from the hustle and bustle.

The ticket taker was not overly friendly or helpful... it cost me 30 kune which is about aud$6 so not too pricey however there were other churches I preferred which were free. One thing I liked about it was that it was a qyiet sanctuary away from the hugely crowded streets and I spent a fair amount of time just... More

We chanced upon the entrance of the Dominican Monastery as we were walking past the waterfront area and decided to pay a visit. Paid 30 Kn per person. Nothing much to see. I think there was about 3-4 rooms in the museum, one floor only and that's it. We did the whole thing in about 10 minutes. Not really worth... More

This is the second of two fairly similar monasteries which exist within the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Located in the far eastern side of town just north of the harbour the complex is again a square format around a central open landscaped square with a bell tower stretching up high above. Similarly to the Franciscan to the west the complex... More

I have been doing accounting for 35 years & was an auditor for many of those years. I am attuned to many of the accounting "tricks" to pocket money. The ticket taker purposely told us we only had to pay one admission, & did not give us any receipt so I am positive he pocketed the fee. This definitely marred... More

My wife and I just returned from an August trip to wonderful and overcrowded Dubrovnik. This city is now apparently a must see destination and was a sea of tourists while we were there. The one day the city set a record as six cruise ships disgorged thousands into the relatively small confines of the walled city. It was unpleasant... More

A bit over-hyped. OK, the 3rd oldest pharmacy is preserved here and some relics (including a labelled hole shot out in the 91/92 siege) but in my eyes not really worth 30 kunars per person
