Rector's Palace, Dubrovnik

3.9
#4 of 78 in Museums in Dalmatia
Rector's Palace showcases the glorious history of the Republic of Ragusa. The Gothic-Renaissance palace served as the seat of the Rector of the Republic between the 14th century and 1808. Since 1872 it has housed the Cultural History Museum. Enter the atrium and admire finely carved capitals and the ornate staircase. See the statue of Miho Pracat, the only commoner in the history of the Republic honored with a statue--thanks to the wealth he bequeathed to the Republic. Other fascinating sites include the rector's office, his private chambers, public halls, administrative offices, and a dungeon.

  • A singular place for a singular use as a residence of a rector. The inscription above the entrance door reminds the rector of his responsibility.  more »
  • We purchase the Dubrovnik pass admission facilities for was because here too. It was not originally planned, but in haste to explore. Local guide who had been feeling the look without the information, so if you have the opportunity I I do travelling together and also deepening the knowledge is the way to enjoy what could I-. Memories of the places along the way, stairs and ceilings are gorgeous and beautiful.

  • We visited here because it was included in the Dubrovnik card. There's a few different things to see in here, and the architecture is amazing, but many items and areas lacked explanations to make it interesting and relevant enough. We spent maybe 30 minutes in here. Perhaps could have been better as part of a guided tour.
  • one of the Museums with something actually in it. not heaps of things to look at but it's nicely presented and the architecture nice. worth it if you have free entry but not for the standard price
  • Monday: visited the Palace and Museum. Well organised and presented to get an impression of some of the figures of the Republic of Ragusa. And other things such as rooms, paintings, furniture, weapons, cutlery, ... Wednesday: attended a concert of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra at the court. The concert and the atmosphere were excellent and very enjoyable.
  • Was good to learn more a out the city and its history. The building itself is lovely to walk through. The exhibited pieces are nothing overwhelming though.
  • Lovely building. Sadly most of the original artifacts have been raised so the building feels a bit empty. Impressive displays though.

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
