Sponza Palace, or The Mint, represents most probably THE most beautiful of all Dubrovnik palaces. A masterpiecs of Gothic art on its transformation to Reneissance

Whilst this is now a museum with an entry fee, don't miss the photo opportunity of the architecture from the outside of the building. It's located at the port end of Placa (Main Street) adjacent to Orlando's Column.

Not a lot to see, ancient building and good historical setting. Good to learn about the local history of the building. I enjoyed this little oasis.

A Must See when entering the Stradun in the Old City as it is one of the most beautiful palaces in Dubrovnik. Sponza Palace is an architectural mixture of Gothic and Renaissance style and was the seat of many state offices. Today the palace houses...More
