Sorry but there is nothing worth seeing in this building, save your money! Stick to admiring it from outside. All that was on show was treaty after treaty from over the centuries very boring

A truly beautiful venue for my son's wedding. The courtyard remained cool when it was baking outside and provided a most elegant and atmospheric backdrop to a wonderful ceremony

This is certainly not worth a visit as a paid for attraction even at the K30 charged it s not value for money and dull. The best architecture is the front which can be viewed free!

This place has some interesting architecture and also has the entrance to the Defenders of Dubrovnik room (which IS worth seeing). Note that Maro and Baro, the "Green Men", used to be housed here, but are now in the Rector's Palace.

Sponza Palace is used for a wide variety of purposes - over the few months we've been in Dubrovnik, I've seen it used as an art gallery, for craft sales, for small concerts, and also left empty. It is pretty with arched porticos and an open courtyard - and if you go late in the day, it's often free. The hours are somewhat erratic in the off-season, so it's worth just stopping by to see if the door is open if you have time. There seems to sometimes be a person sitting at a table near the entrance who takes money. If the table isn't there, you can just pop in to look around without paying.

This former palace has only opened the ground floor to the public. The displays are very shabby and entry's not included in the Dubrovnik Card. Not sure it was worth the 25 kuna...
