Culture and history
Dubrovnik’s Dominican monastery
Founded in the 13th century, the Dominican monastery was constantly revamped over the following centuries. Its sober Gothic style reveals a lovely cloister, a church and a religious art museum. The latter houses precious paintings and manuscripts. You can also visit Dubrovnik's Franciscan monastery.
Many luxurious palaces are hidden within the walls of the city, among these is the Rector’s Palace. This 15th century monument boasts various styles thanks to the many successive improvements made to it. The city’s History Museum is located on the first floor and contains the Rector’s dwellings. You can also visit the galleries and prison.
All around the city
Running for 2 km and reaching 25 m high, the ramparts protect the old town and make for a beautiful walk. An inner and outer belt also ensure the double defence of Dubrovnik. Have fun spotting the town’s main monuments every time you stop.
A bustling old town
The old town is a pleasant place to hang out in Dubrovnik, especially in the evening. Go out for a drink, grab a bite to eat, go to a club or watch the street entertainment in the medieval part of the city. There is a pleasant, easy-going atmosphere there when the sun goes down.
Dubrovnik, centre stage
For a spectacular visit, head to Dubrovnik’s theatre - also known as the Rector’s theatre. This magnificent building hosts a wide variety of events. Dance, theatre, concerts, and more are open to all. An excellent way to get to know Croatian culture.
On the Croatian coast, locals cuisine is comprised mainly of seafood such as octopus and cuttlefish. You can easily find dishes such as Dalmatian octopus salad and black risotto, known as Crni rižot at a number of restaurants. Black risotto is made by mixing the rice with cuttlefish and its ink to give it its colour.
Croatian crème brûlée
If you fancy a sweet treat, try some tasty Croatian delights like quince cake, dried fruits and rožata. This exquisite dessert is a cross between a flan and a crème brûlée. Rožata is made with eggs, milk and sugar, and flavoured with rose - hence its name. Some make it with orange, raisins, almonds, etc.
