Luža Square, Dubrovnik

Luža Square, Dubrovnik (must see)

Luža Square has been the hub around which Dubrovnik has revolved for many centuries.

The buildings surrounding this busy square have stood for hundreds of years and the square has been a gathering place for the residents just as long. Today this wonderful medieval plaza is home to cafes, a bell tower, and Orlando’s column. It is a spectacular place to watch people and take in a nice afternoon.

The history of the square also has a serious side. It is not only where the Croatian sovereignty was proclaimed, but also the place where trials were held, judgments pronounced and punishment executed. It is easy to get lost in time with the Gothic-Renaissance buildings and the paved square; it must have looked almost the same in the 14th century.

Additionally, Luža Square is a venue for the opening ceremony of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival, the Feast of St. Blaise and many other events. This city center is still gathering people just as it was designed to do over seven centuries ago.

Why You Should Visit:
One of the most beautiful old town areas in Europe!

Go at night to avoid the worst crowds – the city is lively and buildings floodlit.
