Another stunning building which survived the war and previous earthquake. Fascinating if you are interested in the history of Dubrovnik but also nice to experience the atmosphere inside. It’s only 25 kn to go in so worthwhile.

Sponza Palace was built in the early 1500's, a Renaissance structure designed by architect Pasij Milicevic. It is one of the very few buildings to survive Dubrovnik's 1667 earthquake. It's interesting just for that reason alone. Why this one? You're going to pass this place...More

We walked past Sponza palace several times during our first couple of days in Dubrovnik without even realising what the building was. It doesn’t exactly stand out compared to the surrounding buildings. Yes the exterior is a bit fancier than the other buildings in line...More

As well as recognising that the building withstood the major earthquake the outside is an impressive facade. Inside contains some interesting historical documents in the archives as well as a display of contemporary art. Not much else.

We recently attended a small wedding within Sponza Palace and it was incredibly beautiful. The architecture is stunning, beautiful stone. One of the nicest weddings I’ve been to, largely because of the uniqueness and beauty of Sponza Palace and it’s surroundings.

It was free to enter and walk round the courtyard, which was worth doing for 5 minutes. There is also a room containing tributes to the men of Dubrovnik who died in their most recent conflict which is worth a look.
