Story about freedom


The Old Town Dubrovnik Walking Tour will take you into the historic heart of Dubrovnik's Old Town, on an exciting journey through Dubrovnik's past and present.

You will hear stories about the small but proud Republic of Dubrovnik but also get to know Dubrovnik as the famous King's Landing in the Game of Thrones series and Canto Blight in the Star Wars 8 movie.

Itinerary

Our tour starts at the main entrance to the Old City of Dubrovnik, Pile gate.
We start next to the Big Onofrio's fountain and square surrounded by the Franciscan Monastery, the former Saint Claire monastery and Dubrovnik's main street Stradun. You'll hear about the one of a kind water supply system, the Franciscan pharmacy, urban planning and Dubrovnik society.
Soon, you'll leave the crowds to explore hidden streets that still have a lot to tell. One of these small streets hides a former orphanage established back in 1432.
You will learn how Dubrovnik was ahead of its time in many ways - it abolished slavery 400 years before England, Dubrovnik's ships were in every corner of the known world spreading the fame of the biggest trade fleet and smallest army in Europe.
From there, we will proceed towards two most important buildings - The Assumption Cathedral and Rector's palace. With only a couple of steps between them, they are the key to understanding the importance of faith and state in the Dubrovnik Rep.
