    Beautiful historic place. You can't miss the Game of Thrones links as it's King's Landing everywhere. Remember Tyrion 'drinks and knows things' there. Get your beers in off the main drag as they're much cheaper, €1.99 for a small beer compared to €3 for the same thing. There's good value to be had all over and great service too.

    Stunning place of architecture and history
    Incredible place, full of history. Look carefully and you can see all the damage from the war on the buildings and floor. The architecture is stunning. You’d think they polished the floor the stone is that shiny. Very clean and well kept.

    A beatiful place
    Stradun is the main road, (predestrians only) from Pile Gate, previouly a channel of water Wonderfully polished paving after so many feet passing over it and beautiful architecture. You have many options to get drinks,food and a coffee. Dont forget to see the Homeland Museum at the far end which is also an art gallery. Turning left at the end takes you to the port. It is busy even in May as the cruise ships arrive but is much quieter in the evenings. Roads to both left and right are lively and full of excellent restaurants and bars.

    The main street in the old town
    This is the main street in the old town. There are a lot of souvenir shops on the street itself and many restaurants in the side streets. You would think they would be tourist traps in such a location, but the restaurants are mostly excellent. It's a relatively short street and I always enjoyed walking it.

    Busy, expansive but pretty
    A lot of shops (design, souvenir, food, and local). Most souvenir shops hold the same items, but some are way overpriced. The food shops/restaurants are extreme busy. The resaurants are also quite expansive, so beware.

    Nice main street but very touristy.
    This is a lovely paved main street that runs from Pile gate to the Dominican monastery / Ploce gate end. There are plenty of tourist shops along with bakeries, cafes, restaurants, monuments. Its the focal point in the city that is the access point to most streets leading to places to see. I rated it very good only because most things on the street are so expensive. Its a very picturesque street with lovely paving and some nice monuments to see as well. We were there in March 2023 and it was still very early in the season so it was mainly empty which made it easier for us to see it. If you're in the old town, you'll most likely find yourself on it.

    The heart of the Old Town
    The Stradun is the main street through the heart of Dubrovnik's Old Town. It's not really possible to avoid it if you're in the old town, and it's crowded but wide enough that, at least when we visited, it didn't feel oppressive. The entire city is closed to vehicles, so you can walk safely anywhere, but the Stradun is fun to traverse the length of, lined mainly with souvenir and fun shops. When it's less crowded, you can see end to end, as it isn't all that long. We enjoyed looking around and exploring and found ourselves on the Stradun multiple times.

    A lively place to stroll and people watch
    What a fun, lively place. It was lovely to go earlier in the day to beat the heat and the crowds. Even better to beat the crowds from the cruise ships that descend on the place en mass.

    Old Town’s Main Street
    And I thought Norway and Switzerland were expensive. This wide street that crosses the Old Town from east to west between the two city gates is known as the Stradun or Placa. It was constructed in the 12th century by draining and filling in the marshy channel that separated the island of Ragusa from the mainland. This street was rebuilt in the current, much more straightforward style after the 1667 earthquake. We entered through the Pile Gate and encountered the Big Onofrio’s fountain at one end and the Sponza palace at the other. Even though the shops and restaurants were expensive, it was definitely worth a stroll and probably one of the few free things you can do in Dubrovnik. Along with shops there were a number of points of interest along the street including Onofrio’s Fountain, Saint Saviour's Church, Statue of Marin Drzic and the Bell Tower. It is a pedestrian only street and undoubtedly the most important pedestrian axis of the city from where all the steep alleys begin to one side, and others towards the sea with a slight slope. The best way to enjoy the Stradun is to walk up and down the street – get there early, as it can get extremely crowded once all the cruise ships arrive. Another nice place to enjoy views of the street is to get to the top of Dubrovnik Old Town Walls from where you can see the Stradun (as well as the rest of the town) from a bird’s -eye perspective.

This is the main street in the walled city of Dubrovnik and of course a must see. In fact, it is probably impossible to visit Dubrovnik and not see it. There are churches, a bell tower, many souvenir shops, some restaurants and ice cream stores along this main street. It is quite beautiful with the large, polished stones, likely polished from millions of people walking on them over hundreds of years. There are many stairways up on the left side (if your back is to Pile Gate). Be sure to walk up several flights to reach one walkway that is filled with restaurants side to side for almost the entire length of the walkway. On the right side of Stradun are more churches, many other restaurants, souvenir shops and other places to see. It is fun to just walk through the winding streets and staircases and explore.

This is the main street in the old town. Take a stroll to see the historic spots that Dubrovnik has to share.
Stop for souvenirs and a bit of refreshment along the way.
There are side streets leading off the main street so wander up a few of them.
ATM machines are available too.
Don't miss this beautiful street. The surface is smooth and can be slippery when wet.

This is the Main Street through the town, interesting shops and lots of restaurants. We were there end of season so crowd’s weren’t really an issue but I can imagine it’s a nightmare at peak times.

Would be classed as the Main Street in the old city, beautiful lined street with architectural buildings turned into restaurants and shops, also one of the main churches at south end of the street.

Restaurants and shops in this area are very pricey but good to have coffee and soak up the atmosphere and buzz of area.

It’s a street. It’s the main thoroughfare in the Old Town. It used to be a waterway. It’s lovely to look at. Do not eat here. The prices are 😱 go a few streets back.
