We visited Dubrovnik back in June. It was very busy as it was start of the high season. We found this place by accident and glad we did. There was only one another couple. The courtyard is just so peaceful and quiet. The girls were...More
The monastery is located just behind the Sponza Palace and Ploce Gate.
The cloister is the most beautiful part of the complex. Built-in Gothic-Renaissance form, it is the work of local stonemasons from the mid-15th century. The graceful triple arches of the cloister surround a...More
In the to and fro and back and forth that is traveling; checking time schedules, packing/unpacking, keeping track of your traveling companions, it was lovely to visit an historic sight like this one, that offered peace and quiet and the chance to contemplate. Be quiet...More
My god daughter attended a Dominican high school and I feel compelled to support this worthy order. I visited after a city tour. The entrance is dark and scaffolding abounds but the inner courtyard is beautiful and peaceful. The paintings are extraordinary and beautifully displayed....More
Although the church itself is currently closed for refurbishment, there is a wonderful museum attached to it which is open to the public for a small fee and the cloister garden is a nice place to sit in peace and quiet. I would recommend a...More

I did not go inside the monastery last time I visited because I only got half a day so I was not aware of their opening hours. I checked on the net for you and apparently it is open from 9am to 6pm (5pm in the winter). I suppose august is not considered winter. But do try to check with your travel agent if any as I believe most of these attractions do not open everyday of the week and besides, it is prudent to check if they would be under any renovation around your time of visit. Wish you a good time in the old town. It is definitely worth a visit!
Hi, This June we will be staying just outside the city walls on Hvarska near the Old Harbor side. I believe the walls open at 8:00am and I can get in near the Dominican Monastery. at the Ploce Gate. Can you tell me where that entrance is? Do I walk to Iza Grada and turn right and then turn right at the T? Is 8:00am when it opens? And, if we want to walk from that point counterclockwise can we do more than one circle so that we walk the walls, then continue along the walls to the Pile...More

Yes the walls open at 8am in June. Not sure whether you can do more than a lap, but that would mean a lot of stairs to do one and a half laps starting at the Ploce entrance.
Tallinn 1 day trip review (5 Replies)
I was again on a day trip by Tallink Superstar. Well, I liked St Olaf's church tower whic is my opinion the best sight. I really don't understand the Estonian bad service atmosphere. In restaurants you got no smiles from service people and they don't look in the eyes. They just "throw" the plate in front of you. The feeling seems to be "I just work here, I don't own or care a s**t about this place". Again I experienced many such a situations. Only the market place sellers seem to be...More

Seems like your day trip was not what you hoped for. Regarding the bad service, unfortunately sometimes in Tallinn, Finns are treated a little indifferently when they take a short trip to Tallinn from Helsinki expecting it to be a theme park. The monastery is off Vene st for next time. I almost got run over by a tram in Helsinki once, so I don't think the Tallinn bus issue is isolated. For the sea atmosphere, in the evening, outside of town hall square, the seagulls are omnipresent.
