Expert review of Rector's Palace
When Dubrovnik was an independent republic, this is where the chief citizen, the rector, would reside during his one-month term in office. On the ground floor, looking onto an internal courtyard, are the halls where the local senates held their meetings, plus an armoury and a dungeon. On the first floor, the rector’s living quarters now accommodate the City Museum, exhibiting period furniture and costumes, and paintings by Venetian and Dalmatian artists. There’s also an unusual collection of clocks: each one has stopped at 5.45 pm, the hour the city fell to Napoleon’s soldiers on 31 January 1806, bringing about the end of the republic.
