The Rector's Palace in Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik It is a beautiful city in Croatia that is also a World Heritage Site. There are beautiful places you can visit, especially those in its walled center, a real delight for visitors, especially if you can see it from one of the mountains in the area. One of the places that I like the most is the Rector's Palace, probably the most outstanding in the city. If you go to travel to Dubrovnik You will have to choose since there are many palaces, museums and other types of attractions, but this should undoubtedly be an essential visit on your agenda.

The facade is a true work of art with several sculpted figures supporting all the pillars throughout the building. Inside there is a large central patio with several rooms and rooms that are aligned around it, both on the ground floor and on the upper floor. In the atrium they are usually made concerts during the summer, being also one of the venues of the famous Dubrovnik Summer Festival. On the upper floor is the history Museum, where objects from the ancient kingdom are exhibited with a great display of typically Dalmatian and Venetian decoration and with precious fabrics and tapestries that decorate ceilings and walls.

Formerly it was the official seat of power in the old Republic of Ragusa, since there the Rector exercised his government and only left the palace on very rare occasions. It was rebuilt in the 15th century with a mixture of Renaissance and Gothic styles due to the two explosions that occurred in the city in that century. It was reformed again after a great earthquake will leave it seriously damaged in 1667. The importance of the Rector's Palace is so important that it appears on the banknotes of Kuna, the Croatian national currency, specifically on the obverse of those of 50HRK.
