St Saviour's Church

1) St Saviour's Church

This marvelous old house of worship is a main attraction in the old part of Dubrovnik. The building was erected in honor of Jesus Christ, in recognition for the town being spared from a great earthquake that hit in the early 1500s. In fact, you can find a monument to that fact located on the front side of the building. Construction was finished in 1528. The famed Petar Andrijich was the designer and architect of the church.

The overall design is in the shape of a Gothic cross. There is a...   view more

Franciscan Monastery

2) Franciscan Monastery (must see)

The Friary of St. Francis of Dubrovnik was organized in 1317. The original structure that housed the local religious order was pretty much destroyed during the earthquake of 1667. The group did rebuild their home afterwards, and incorporated more modern styles of architecture into their new structure. So like many buildings in the area, it displays elements of Baroque and Renaissance style architecture. The main component of the building that survived the earthquake was the old cloister.

Serbian Orthodox Church

3) Serbian Orthodox Church

The Orthodox Church is a relatively new addition to the town, in terms of the local churches. It was constructed in 1865. The reason for this is that the local Serbians were not allowed to build a formal house of worship within the city limits until just a few years before the construction of the building. After that point, it has remained a house of prayer since. There are not as many members around anymore, as many of the Serbians left the area during the war of 1991.

St Ignatius Church

4) St Ignatius Church (must see)

This is a fine example of an old Jesuit style Roman Catholic Church. It is located on the very southern edge of the old part of Dubrovnik. Construction of the facility was started in 1665, and was delayed for a bit during the great earthquake of 1667. Completion of the project happened in 1725. The designer was Ignazzio Pozzo.

Like many such buildings owned by the Jesuit community, this local house of worship was modeled after the Gesu in Rome. This is the main headquarters for the Order. The...   view more

Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin

5) Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin (must see)

The Assumption Church is an impressive structure that has undergone a lot of change over the years. The original cathedral was a Byzantine style church that was built in the 6th Century. So, a church of one type or another has been here a very long time. The whole building was redone in a construction phase that lasted over one hundred years, starting in the 12th Century. At that time, a more Romanesque style of design was incorporated into the building. Local legend has it that the change was...   view more

Church of St. Blaise

6) Church of St. Blaise (must see)

The church is named after the local patron saint of Dubrovnik. He was also the local head and protector of the old Ragusian Republic here. The local church holds a feast in his honor on the 3rd of February each year. The church has some of the relics of the man as well: both of his hands, and a bit of bone from his face are held here.

The church was formed in the 14th Century, and was originally built in the very popular Romanesque style, as much of the construction was done here in that time...   view more

Dominican Monastery

7) Dominican Monastery (must see)

The Dominican Monastery of the area is very old, having been established in 1315. Much of the original financing came from the local government. In addition, many local builders volunteered their services to help the Dominican Order get established in Dubrovnik. Sadly, this building was also damaged in 1667 by the great earthquake, and had to be rebuilt in places.

It is a classic example of a Gothic cloister. There is also a working medieval well here, and a decent museum to visit. It has...   view more
