Expert review of Maritime Museum

Find out more about Dubrovnik’s historic ties with the sea and shipping.

During the time of the republic, Dubrovnik’s wealth was based on merchant shipping. At its peak, in the 16th century, the republic’s fleet was one of the biggest in the world, with more than 180 ships, some 4000 sailors, and consulates in over 50 foreign ports. The city’s close ties with the sea are highlighted in this museum, with exhibits including models and paintings of ships through the centuries, maps and navigational charts, and sailors’ uniforms and equipment. It’s housed in the upper floors of St John’s Fortress – from the entrance, within the ramparts, you get fine views down onto the harbour and the terracotta rooftops of the old town.
