Knežev Dvor (Bishop's Palace)
Knežev Dvor (Bishop's Palace) Review
Originally created in the 15th century but reconstructed several times through the following years, this exquisite building with an arcaded loggia and an internal courtyard shows a combination of late-Gothic and early Renaissance styles. On the ground floor there are large rooms where, in the days of the republic, the Great Council and Senate held their meetings. Over the entrance to the meeting halls a plaque reads: "obliti privatorum publica curate" (Forget private affairs, and get on with public matters). Upstairs, the rector's living quarters now accommodate the Cultural History Museum, containing exhibits that give a picture of life in Dubrovnik from early days until the fall of the republic. Visitors buy a combination ticket, which is valid for four musuems, including the Maritime Museum, the Ethnographic Museum, and the Archaeology Museum (all in separate locations).
