Rector's Palace showcases the glorious history of the Republic of Ragusa. The Gothic-Renaissance palace served as the seat of the Rector of the Republic between the 14th century and 1808. Since 1872 it has housed the Cultural History Museum. Enter the atrium and admire finely carved capitals and the ornate staircase. See the statue of Miho Pracat, the only commoner in the history of the Republic honored with a statue--thanks to the wealth he bequeathed to the Republic. Other fascinating sites include the rector's office, his private chambers, public halls, administrative offices, and a dungeon.

  • Apart from the walls the dubrovnik pass gives you access to a few different location. This was by far the best and is probably the only attraction I would pay on it's own to access. It has plenty of rooms with history and information and the architecture is beautiful. They had a coin exhibition with was a bonus and safe chests were very interesting.
  • Cute venue for the orchestra we attended. Nice breeze from the open air setting.
