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

I had the good fortune to teach for five weeks in the Dubrovnik International University, which is located on the top floor of the Dominican Monastery. So I got to see the monastery every time I went to the university, and also went inside and saw the great works of art there. I would recommend a visit to the monastery... More

Building is old and so vintage. There is also little museum which was very first pharmacy in Europe. Now, there are displayed stuff they used. In the middle there is the most beautiful garden I've ever seen. Only thing I can say is: What a vintage haven!

This is a wonderfully tranquil spot and the church and cloisters are well worth visiting. The only downside were the two women working there on the day of our visit. While looking carefully at one of the painted altarpieces one of our party (a 50 year old priest) accidentally brushed up against the rope and it started to swing a... More

You have to pay to visit the very small monastery which you enter on the long flight of stairs to the left of the chapel (which is reached through steep steps and is only open during service). The entry fee is cheap (5 kuna I think). the most interesting part is the little museum they have which houses some quite... More

Very old canvasses and artefacs from the 14th and 15th centures are on display here. The museum houses an amazing display of votive jewellery. The most memorable painting is that of the Madonna with child.
