The original bell tower was built in the 15th century and it is right at the east end of Placa Stradun, the main street of Dubrovnik. However, the tower began to lean over time like the Pisa Tower after the great earth quake of 1667 and so it was demolished and rebuilt in 1929 with the present one. Did not... More

We enjoyed hearing the bell ring and watching the figures at the top perform the act of ringing it. We did not climb it.

We crammed a lot of things into our trip to Dubrovnik. We saw this bell tower and we took photos of it and it's very nice. However, we never realised until looking on TA that we could pay and go and climb the steps to the top or we would have done so. Still, it's a strong focal point in... More

If you like heights then this is well worth the trip up. I made it halfway and then had to come down. The stairs itself are quite open on one side which made me nervous.

We really enjoyed our walk up to the top of the bell tower. It wasn't too tiring climbing up, there was a really great view, and there were great photo ops. I recommend this!

The bell tower or clock tower is a landmark that can be seen from most places in the Old City. Two figures on the top strike the bell and the chimes can be heard all around.

Built in 1444, this is the main clock in town. It was deliberately oriented to the sight lines down the Placa. The fun part about this bell tower (which was rebuilt in 1928-29 using the original drawings (because it was leaning because of instability caused by the great earthquake) is the two bronze men at the top with hammers. They... More

The 100+ foot bell tower is located on the east end of the Stradun, the main street of Dubrovnik. Constructed in 1444, the tower was rebuilt in 1928 because of its instability caused by the big earthquake. The bell in the tower weighs over 2 tons. It strikes on the hour. The two bronze figures and their green color is... More

worth the climb! From here you see the old streets of old Dubrovnik. The climb itself is a bit of an adventure. First steps are very narrow, in the top of the belltower you walk on a steel frame and narrow stairway.
