Dobrovnik's Old Town is encircled by massive stone walls, constructed in the 16th century. Behind these walls you will find well-preserved buildings, brick streets, a charming ambiance and beautiful architecture.
Before arriving at Old Town, this tour stops for a spectacular panoramic view of the city, helping you understand why Dubrovnik is known as the "Pearl of the Adriatic".
Your expert guide will lead you through the narrow streets of the Old Town introducing you to the main sights, such as the Orlando Column. This stone column with a statue of a knight represents Orlando, who, according to legend, along with his fleet, saved the city of Dubrovnik in the 9th Century.
The 18th Century Baroque Dubrovnik Cathedral is not to be missed. It is well-known for its religious artifacts, relics and art masterpieces including paintings by Croatian, Italian and Flemish artists.
The Rector's Palace was once the seat of the Rector of the Republic of Ragusa. Its combination of Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance styles is attributable to the various architects brought in to rebuild the Palace after numerous incidents of damage over the centuries. Despite this mixture of styles, it is a beautiful building that now houses a natural history museum.
St. Blaise's church, built in 1715, is named in honor of the patron saint of Dubrovnik and is one of the city's most famous, most beautiful sites. This stunning example of Baroque architecture has earned the well-deserved title as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
