The Courtyard

The rector of Dubrovnik lived here, but the palace, constructed beginning in 1435, was also a seat of government. The rector was not allowed to leave the palace during his short, 1-month term unless he was engaged in state business. The architecture combines Gothic and early Renaissance styles, and the palace today houses a museum with furnished rooms, historical exhibits, and baroque paintings. The museum entry is by way of the stairway in this picture.
