Fodor's Review

Originally created in the 15th century but reconstructed several times through the following years, this exquisite Gothic/Renaissance building with an arcaded loggia and an internal courtyard is one of the most significant buildings along the Croatian Coast. 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.
