Placa-Stradun is the name of Dubrovnik's main street. It was built over the sea channel which once separated the halves of the city. The stone pavement has been worn smooth over the years and the heat just bounces of it so make sure you have water with you - this is a hot city!
The design of the Placa goes back top the 13th century but a great proportion was destroyed by the 1667 earthquake so gothic and renaissance were replaced by baroque facades.

Address: Stradun or Placa is the main street of Dubrovnik
