Other Fun Things To Do

  • Spend the day touring the city's rich religious and cultural history. Visit the large Onofrio Fountain, the Franciscan Monastery and the Rectors' Palace.
  • Visit Lopud Island, the home of many great sailors and sea captains throughout history. With its mild climate, subtropical vegetation, enchanting footpaths, beautiful scenery and sandy beaches, it is the perfect spot to relax.
  • Visit the 15th-century Rectors' Palace that was once the seat of Dubrovnik's Republic government. The elected Rector was not permitted to leave this building during his one-month term without permission from the Senate. Today, the palace is a museum with furnished rooms, Baroque paintings and historical exhibits that will give you a taste of how the ruling class and the aristocracy used to live in Dubrovnik.
