Dubrovnik wedding venues
Dubrovnik has a large number of wedding venues to choose from, from romantic old churches and palaces for luxury weddings to beaches and seaside terraces. The churches in the Old Town are located near the sea, making it possible to combine weddings with boat cruises to reception locations and honeymoon destinations.
The Church of St. Blaise, the protector of the city, is one of the most popular and most impressive locations for weddings in the city. Located in the heart of the Old Town, the 18th century baroque building is easy to find and its wide staircase provides wonderful photo opportunities for large wedding parties. Only a few steps away, the Dubrovnik Cathedral, another important landmark of the city, is a popular venue for weddings with 100 or more guests.
Two stunning 15th century palaces – Sponza and Rector’s Palace – are minutes away from the Church of St. Blaise and the Dubrovnik Cathedral and offer a breathtaking backdrop for weddings for those looking to have a royal feel on their special day. The architecture and scenery, combined with plenty of sunshine and enough shade on warm, sunny days, make these palaces among the most popular venues for civil weddings in Dubrovnik.
Dubrovnik forts overlooking the Adriatic also offer a unique romantic charm and spectacular views for wedding photography. The most popular forts are Revelin Fortress, located near Ploče Gate and the old port, and Lovrijenac Fortress, overlooking the Dubrovnik walls from the other side of the Old Town.
