Car Rental in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik (historically Ragusa) is a city on the Adriatic Sea in southern Croatia.  It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean Sea, a sea port and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva Country. In 1979, the city of Dubrovnik joined the UNESCO list of Word Heritages Cities.

Stradun/Placa

Stradun, also called Placa, runs from Pile Gate to Ploce Gate. The paving stones were laid in 1468. At one end (at Pile Gate) is the Onofrio Fountain whilst at the other end is the Orlando Column, a favourite meeting place for locals.

 

Dubrovnik Old Town Walls

The city walls were originally constructed in the 10th century, although fortified considerably in 1453. They are 3m thick along the sea wall, and 6m thick inland. The Old Town has fortresses at its four corners, which are the Minceta Tower, Revelin Fortress, St John’s Fortress, and Bokar Bastion.

Sponza Palace

Constructed in 1522 – a survivor of the 1667 earthquake – the Palace has had a variety of uses over the centuries, including where the Republic of Ragusa minted its currency. These days, it houses the city archives upstairs whilst downstairs is used for exhibitions and during the Summer Festival. It also houses a permanent exhibition named “Memorial Room of the Dubrovnik Defenders”, a memorial to those Dubrovnik citizens who lost their lives during the war between 1991 and 1995.

Pile Gate

From the 15th and 16th centuries, the western gate was and is the traditional entrance to the Old Town. The gate contains a statue of St Blaise, Dubrovnik’s patron saint.

 

Onofrio’s Large Fountain (Great Onofrio Well)

Originally constructed in 1438 by Italian architect Onofrio della Cava, the fountain was partially damaged in the 1667 earthquake and further during the war in 1992 (although it was rapidly restored). The fountain was part of the city’s water mains constructed in the 15th century which brought water from the Dubrovacka River 12km away.

Ploce Gate

The eastern entrance to the Old Town, this gate stems from the 15th century.
