As the main thoroughfare of the old town, the area is steeped with history and shops hidden within the old stone buildings that line the street. A gem to wander around or rest in one of the street cafes. There are several alleys off the...More

You have to at least walk down the Stradun at least once while you are in the Old Town, but a much nicer street to walk on that is parallel to most of the Stradun is Od Puca.

We stayed within the old city so walked this many times. There are crowds so go early to see more. It is very clean and lots of shops line either side- quite pricy though. At night it is lovely and even better after rain when...More

It's something everyone should experience ... but by encourage everyone to see it, that means even more crowds than ever before! The architecture, the quaintness, the narrow side streets off the main thoroughfare are all part of the experience. ENJOY!!!

This polished stone thorough fare is very italianesc in nature. Lined by tiny shops and surrounded by side steers, steps to hidden terraces and quaint eateries. Great at any time of the day!

This is the main street in the old town, running from the Pile Gate to the port. It is a must see because it contains many of Dubrovnik's beautiful churches, fountains, and Orlando's column. It also contains a lot of tourist shops, cafes, restaurants and...More

A great place for a walk on the marbled floor with the old buildings either side and the narrow alleyways with so much history. We only had drinks at various restaurants and bars because it’s a tourist trap and very very expensive.

Very crowded thoroughfare especially when cruise ship passengers and tours passed through. But very historic with interesting buildings and stairways in the cross streets to explore. My favorite view of this Street was when it was quiet and uncrowded in the early morning when all...More
