  • St. Saviour Church - nice Renaissance church near the western entrance to the city walls. The church was built right after the earthquake of May 17th, 1520 by the decision of Dubrovnik Senate "to please the God and thank the Savior for sparing the City from any damages in the strong earthquake that struck Dubrovnik". The monumental inscription above the main entrance on the front facade testifies to this. Designed by the architect Petar Andrijić from Korčula, construction started in 1520 and the church was completed in 1528. The Church was built in Renaissance style with some Gothic elements.
  • Beautiful location and don't forget to get refreshments before starting your sightseeing tour ;)
  • It has a wealth of history (both dark and gruesome history a happier local history). Recommended!
  • Lovely Renaissance church at the entrance of the old town.
  • Ok

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.
