Old Town

Dubrovnik’s Old Town offers the best shopping and plenty of variety for its visitors. The Stradun houses the oldest pharmacy in the world, and from there shops fan out in all directions. There are all sorts of souvenir shops in the vicinity and other types of retail shops can be easily found in the streets around Stradun. In the alleyways you can find everything you need, such as shoe shops, jewellery, clothes, bookshops and plenty of old crafts shops. One of the most fascinating craft shops is “Ronchi,” a hat-making enterprise housed near the market square, which was established in 1858.
