There's a plethora of beautiful historical and architecturally important buildings in Dubrovnik but this struck me the most. Exquisite courtyard and attached church and site of the oldest pharmacy in Europe with tonnes of old parchments in and a missile hole from the bombing in...More

This monastery is very much like other ones we have seen. The small museum has a few interesting pieces. The art gallery is interesting and very cool. This makes it a nice break from the heat.

Dominican Monastery is a small museum, with a central courtyard that invited a few minutes of rest. We highly recommend a visit. Our May visit was not with crowds, and no cruise ships were present. We enjoyed pleasant spring weather. Know that Dubrovnik was destroyed...More

The Dominican Monastery was constructed and included within the city walls to defend the city against its enemies. It also played an important role in the cultural activities in the city. The wonderful bell tower of the monastery is a major landmark in the Old...More

Parts of this are under construction and the church is closed. The chapel that I peered into was quite plain. The icons and religious artifacts in the museum though were quite good and I was able to leisurely move around a couple of tour groups...More

Within this monastery's solid stone walls is a gorgeous mid-14th-century cloister, a historic pharmacy and a small museum with a collection of relics and liturgical objects, including chalices, paintings, gold jewellery and pharmacy items such as laboratory gear and medical books. The remains of artillery...More

Surprised to pay to visit. Also not allowed to take photos. Where the Oldest Pharmacy is siutated.(a modern one is in situ) The cloisters reminded me of Salisbury Cathedral or the Monastery in Lisbon

I did not go inside the monastery last time I visited because I only got half a day so I was not aware of their opening hours. I checked on the net for you and apparently it is open from 9am to 6pm (5pm in the winter). I... More
Dear Sir; Is there a staff at the Dominican Monastery, or anyone around that knows any of the late 1800's early 1900's history of the monastery. Specifically, we are looking for information about a young boy who was taken in by the monks in a monastery in Dubrovnik and became a very capable translator for them around this aforementioned time period. He left around the age of 18 and came to America. My Grandson is his Great, Great Grandson and is looking for information about his Great, Great Grandfather. Any information that can be provided is greatly appreciated. We will be traveling to Dubrovnik in late June and would like to visit and tour the monastery where my Grandson's Great, Great Grandfather lived during the formative period of his life.

Hello, There were staff there who might be able to answer some of your questions although I'm not sure how much they offer in terms of tours etc. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.
