MUSIC WITH THE PANORAMIC VIEW

Where in the world could you find an outdoor music stage by the restored ruins of a 14th century church? In Dubrovnik, of course! But if you aren’t looking carefully for the Park Orsula amphitheater, you’ll probably just drive right by.

If the planet Earth is music, then Park Orsula is it’s primal blues. The Old City of Dubrovnik on your right, island Lokrum in front of you, small city of Cavtat looming in the distance on your left and the remains of one old church will paint the most beautiful picture, write the most beautiful story and play the most beautiful music in your heart and soul. (Imagine scene from the movie “Amadeus” when Salieri is describing Mozart’s music).

One of Dubrovnik’s newest (and yet, somehow, also oldest) outdoor performance spaces is located just off the main highway that leads out of town towards the airport. You can’t see it from the road, but if you park at the scenic overlook and follow the stone path down the hill, you’ll come to a beautifully restored stone complex that includes a breathtaking 180-degree panoramic view of the old city, sea and nearby islands, as well as the chapel of St. Ursula, an open air amphitheater, walking trails, a snack bar. Best of all, entrance is free, open 8 am to midnight.
