Heights

If you like heights then this is well worth the trip up. I made it halfway and then had to come down. The stairs itself are quite open on one side which made me nervous.

We really enjoyed our walk up to the top of the bell tower. It wasn't too tiring climbing up, there was a really great view, and there were great photo ops. I recommend this!

The bell tower or clock tower is a landmark that can be seen from most places in the Old City. Two figures on the top strike the bell and the chimes can be heard all around.

Built in 1444, this is the main clock in town. It was deliberately oriented to the sight lines down the Placa. The fun part about this bell tower (which was rebuilt in 1928-29 using the original drawings (because it was leaning because of instability caused by the great earthquake) is the two bronze men at the top with hammers.

The 100+ foot bell tower is located on the east end of the Stradun, the main street of Dubrovnik. Constructed in 1444, the tower was rebuilt in 1928 because of its instability caused by the big earthquake. The bell in the tower weighs over 2 tons. It strikes on the hour. The two bronze figures and their green color is... More

worth the climb! From here you see the old streets of old Dubrovnik. The climb itself is a bit of an adventure. First steps are very narrow, in the top of the belltower you walk on a steel frame and narrow stairway.

The Bell tower is an important landmark visible from just about everwhere in the city. The bells strike twice at an interval of three minutes. The best views are from the city walls

It is always helpful when you are visiting a city for the first time to have a landmark such as this giving you some idea where you are before you st your bearings.

A bell tower that dominates the old town and whose bells strike twice, on the hour and three minutes later – just in case you didn’t hear it the first time. There’s two figures, each with hammers, who take it in turn to strike the bell.

Along the way (and over time), there have been a few modifications, one of which was the tower being rebuilt in the 1920's (it was leaning). Up in the bell tower are two figures which hammer the bell to chime the time. These are copies; the originals are in the Rector's Palace Museum. The face of the clock is very... More
