This 16th century palace is a classic mixture of Gothic and Renaissance style architecture. The square shaped building. The palace is now used as an archive of old documents of the city. Nice place.

Only the first floor was open when I visited. Don't know what else may be available upstairs... The palace is gorgeous and it's original features still intact-specifically the atrium courtyard. There is a very moving one room memorial to the Croatians killed in the Homeland...More

Not a lot to see, ancient building and good historical setting. Good to learn about the local history of the building. I enjoyed this little oasis.

Yes its a nice building from outside, but thats about it.. Paid to go in, and was out in 15 mins.. It does house some nice pictures for sale, and a lot of old archives, many which on display are copies..

Stood at the end of Placa Stradun, this Gothic Renaissance style building was completed in the early 16th century. Don't misunderstand as palaces in Croatia do not refer to palaces for Kings and Queens, it was rather a seat for state offices including customs, bank,...More

The architecture is beautiful but very similar to a lot of other buildings in old town. It's worth a quick peak but certainly not worth paying to go in.
