Save

This most famous Dubrovnik church was built in honor of the patron saint of the city of Dubrovnik - St. Blaise, who, according to legend, informed the Senate about the intention of the Venetians to attack the city and prepare the population of Dubrovnik for defense. After the intention of the Venetians was defeated, the people of Dubrovnik chose Saint Blaise as their main protector. On the main altar of this church there is a statue of Saint Blaise holding a model of Dubrovnik. The feast of St. Blaise is also held in his honor in February, which makes Dubrovnik an off-season destination.

very good!!!
Mirre
The church stands out on top of the town, it has so many relics and remains of the saints that have served in that church, the place was very well maintained and the outside was very quiet
Ariana
It is a very beautiful church with a calm and pleasant atmosphere.
Inga
a beautiful church, passed by it many times, since it is located in the very center of the old city and is an integral part of it. Statues have been preserved on the building, inside there is a very pleasant atmosphere
