This is the main street of the Old Town and is pedestrianised. It is wide but not all that long. Paved in white, shiny stone and lined with buildings of uniform height, it is lovely. Most visitors enter the Old Town via Pile Gate, which leads directly on to Stradun

This is the main avenue when you enter the city at Pile Gate (by the busy bus terminus), which is very impressive, thankfully quite wide & very busy at peek times with tourists off the cruise ships. There are plenty of things to see and do, it's also lovely at night, just be mindful if wet as the well worn... More

What attracted me first was the limestone paving. It really gives a feeling of being in a City built so many many years ago. Stores line the street, and this is probably the widest street in the Old City. Lot of experiences along the way - we saw a lady with parrots allowing people to take pictures with them -... More

At the northern end of the street on the right hand side we found mojito flavoured ice cream which was the most amazing flavour for a warm day. There are others (and the other half had tried most of them during our 4 day stay) but the mojito was incredible!

We walked this street many times during the three days we spent in Dubrovnik. It is the main street in the Old Town. Many shops, restaurants and historic sites are either on the street or just off of it. We recommend visiting either before June or after mid-September to be able to enjoy the Old Town without feeling extremely crowded... More

Whether you enter from the sea, or the main gate, you will be in the Placa, the main street of old Dubrovnik, and it is a great place to start. It is crowded, but so is everywhere else, but you get a real sense of the layout of the city by walking the thoroughfare.

Stradun is the pearl of the old town. It is really amazing, also in the night when it is all lighted up.

Take a walk at this main street in the night while it's not that crowded. And basically if you get lost in the city, jus head to this street and you're back in the track :D
