  • We had planned a gala dinner in the open air where end of may for 70 persons. The Organization was good (very delicious food by the competent caterer-> restaurant Dubrovnik). The Atrium was super lighted, by the high walls sitting nicely sheltered from the wind, even if it is outside fresh. We had ordered as a precaution late may still radiant, we but not needed.

  • Built in the century XVI, of style Gothic-Renaissance. In the past it initially housed the Customs and warehouses, then worked as literary club this Palace is one of the few buildings that was not destroyed by the earthquake of 1667. He is currently the file history of Dubrovnik, which houses more than 100,000 documents, being one of the most remarkable in the world. It retains its original appearance, one of the most beautiful palaces of the city and is the place chosen by many citizens of Dubrovnik to marry.

  • This early 16th century palace was formerly the city's custom's house and mint and looks splendid from the outside. It is now home to the Stae Archives and a Memorial Room of the Dubrovnik Defenders. ...  more »

  • Magnificent Sponza or Divona Palace was built between 1516 and 1522 in a mixed Gothic and Renaissance style, typical for 15th & 16th c. Dubrovnik (architect Pasko Miličević from Dubrovnik, sculptures by Andrijić brothers from Korčula). During the pariod of the independent Republic of Dubrovnik/Ragusa, it served as customs office, mint, treasury, school etc. Today it is seat of the Dubrovnik Archive (Dubrovnik Department of Croatian National Archives), one of the most important places for the study of medieval and early modern history of Croatia, Europe, Mediterranian countries and the Ottoman Empire, in addition to the study of Dubrovnik history, with the oldest manuscript from 1022 (Papal bull by pope Benedict VIII to Archbishop Vitalis of Ragusa/Dubrovnik).
  • This Palace was the liveliest commercial centre of the City, and in the 17th century it became the meeting place of members of the Academy of the Learned, who used to discuss literature, arts and science.
  • Great views all around. Lovely relaxed atmosphere. I would go again.
  • Fantastic palace! Words can't describe. I love this city.
  • A spectacular gothic-renesance palace in the center of the Old Town. Housed a number of different government offices and institutions throughout the centuries including a customs house, treasury and others. Close to a number of other historic sites in the center of Old Town like the Rectors Palace and the Church of Saint Blaise, so convenient to visit. Well worth the effort.
