The rector's palace was built in the Gothic style, but it also has Renaissance and Baroque elements, harmoniously combining these elements.
3 stars only because it’s closed from Nov 21st 2017 to May 31st 2018 but there’s no announcements because there’s no official website, at least I can’t find it & closure information is not on general Dubrovnik info sites.
We visited here because it was included in the Dubrovnik card. There's a few different things to see in here, and the architecture is amazing, but many items and areas lacked explanations to make it interesting and relevant enough. We spent maybe 30 minutes in here. Perhaps could have been better as part of a guided tour.
one of the Museums with something actually in it. not heaps of things to look at but it's nicely presented and the architecture nice. worth it if you have free entry but not for the standard price
Monday: visited the Palace and Museum. Well organised and presented to get an impression of some of the figures of the Republic of Ragusa. And other things such as rooms, paintings, furniture, weapons, cutlery, ... Wednesday: attended a concert of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra at the court. The concert and the atmosphere were excellent and very enjoyable.
Only reason I give this review is that Dubrovnik Card website didn't mention that it was closed for repairs. Looks awesome on the outside, left to winner what's inside. Could've been a factor in buying 3 day pass vs 1 day pass as it's closed so less things to see that pass is good for.
Is it a palace or a museum? this beautiful 14th century and elegant building is just stunning.
Seems to be very beautiful, but it's closed until May 31, 2018, due to restorations...
What to say. See it by yourself. Dream place in dream city.
Beautiful tiny old palace. Maybe it's a little expensive. We bought the Dubrovnik card which included it and saved a lot.
The architecture is beautiful but the museum itself is not worth visiting. I expected to get a brief overview about the history and culture of Dubrovnik which I didn't. Inside you'll find different paintings and sculptures of hardly known artists/sculptors, a former prison cell and a few portraits of well known Croatian people (politicians, scientists, writers) in rather unpretentious palace attire. The explanations are very insufficient.
Well maintained tiny little palace within the old town. They have a museum, a coffee shop and an exhibition space. The place looks great from the outside at night. Entry fee applicable.
Great place for visiting during old town trip. Worth to visit with Dubrovnik card. Toilets are modern, big and clean.
Mediocre exhibits of Croatian culture and history. Insufficient descriptions or explanations for tourists to appreciate the exhibits on display. Thankfully the tickets are included in the price for the Dubrovnik Card. The place itself looks amazing and was even used for a scene of ‘Game of Thrones’.
We went there for a concert that is part of the Dubrovnik Summer festival. It was great and memorable!
