    Museums and art

    Antuninska 6 HR - 20000 Dubrovnik

  • 8 Gate of Pile Recommended Recommended

    Architecture, castles and historic districts

    Lucarica 1 HR - 20000 Dubrovnik

    Religious buildings

    Kneza Damjana Jude 1 HR - 20000 Dubrovnik

  • 13 Church of St Blaise Interesting

    Religious buildings

    Luža 3 HR - 20000 Dubrovnik

    Built in 1715, this Baroque church, devoted to the town's patron saint and protector, is in striking contrast with the sobriety of Placa. Its impressive steps, ornate façade and dome hide a compact (short nave) but warm interior: the altar is a riot ..

    Nature and gardens

    Lokrum HR - 20000 Dubrovnik
