The Rector’s Palace (Dubrovnik)
When visiting Dubrovnik be sure to visit the Rector’s Palace, which was built as a mixture of three styles – Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance. Throughout history the palace had been heavily damaged or destroyed multiple times, but thanks to builders like Onofrio della Cava, Juraj Dalmatinac and Michelozzo of Florence, it retained its majestic appearance. On the second floor of the Rector’s Palace, above the doorway that used to connect the Rector’s Palace to the Major Council Palace (now the Town Hall), there is an inscription: “Forget private, tend to public affairs”. In addition to the Rector’s office and his private chambers, the reception and audience halls, the Rector’s Palace housed the prison, the Minor Council, the Notariate, the armoury, the Court, and the Senate. Today, the Rector’s Palace is home to the cultural history department and the Dubrovnik Museums. Old styled furniture, paintings of local and foreign old masters, coins minted by the Republic, the original keys of the city gates, a number of important state documents and many other items are on permanent exhibit in the palace.
