Gradac Park, Dubrovnik

Gradac Park, Dubrovnik

Gradac is the largest and most famous park in Dubrovnik, located on the top of the cliffs above the Danača beach in the Pile-Kono district, just a short walk from the Old Town. The park was established in 1898 as a vast (1.7 ha) tranquil zone for people to come and enjoy beautiful nature in a close proximity to the urban setting. Overgrown with pine forest and dotted with numerous wooden benches set in the shade, this is a popular recreation space much loved by locals and tourists alike.

At the entrance there is a small pond with some goldfish slowly swimming around. From here one can also enjoy an excellent view over the Lovrijenac Fortress, the Pile and the roofs of the Old Town, while the other areas in the park afford a similarly picturesque view of the monastery, Danče beach and the open sea.

Gradac Park made appearance in Season 4 Episode 2 ‘The Lion and the Rose’ in the scene of the Purple Wedding feast in which King Joffrey met his end from poisoning. The Park also featured in the same season Episode 3 ‘Breaker of the Chains’ when Sansa flees from King’s Landing.
