Slanica i Revelin
Revelin Fortress, just like fort Lovrijenac, is separated from the city wall system and located at the City’s eastern entrance. It is separated by a deep moat and is connected to the rest of the City by a bridge. Its defensive importance, role, and even symbolism are vital for the Republic of Dubrovnik and the City of Dubrovnik. For centuries, it defended the City from the mainland, and in the Homeland War, it provided refuge to citizens as a shelter.
The idea and the first designs of the fort were created in the middle of the 15th century. The actual project was done in 1538 by Antonio Ferramolino, who received 200 ducats for it. Other city towers and fortresses are being adapted according to his designs. Revelin was built relatively quickly as a priority for the security of the City. One of the demands of the Council was that every traveler wishing to enter the City must bring with him a stone, commensurate with its weight, to assist in the construction of this magnificent fortress.
Slanica, i.e., the salt magazine, leans on the west side of Revelin and touches the crown of the fortress from its three floors. It was built shortly after completing the works, complementing the overall view of the eastern city entrance. It contains deep basement spaces, proving that it had a strong defensive role, regardless of everyday use. Namely, Slanica served as the main salt distribution center for the City and its surroundings. In the niche above the entrance is the only statue of St. Vlaho showing it in profile. The Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra has been using Slanica as a working space since 2005.
Built as the administrative center of the Republic, this Palace is one of the most beautiful architectural monuments in the old town. In numerous historical events and renovations, the Palace has changed its appearance and styles several times, which is why today, the entire Dubrovnik stylistic history is visible on it. As the administrative seat, the Rector’s Palace played several vital roles in the community. Thus, there were prisons and courtrooms on the ground floor of the Palace. In the other wing, there were legal departments where citizens could get legal advice. During his tenure, the rector lived upstairs and left the Palace primarily for official duty. One of the architectural curiosities is that Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque elements can be found on the front of the Palace. This mixture testifies to an exciting and turbulent history. For example, as the city authorities kept gunpowder in the Palace, it exploded on several occasions and damaged the building.
The Orchestra’s concerts are performed in the atrium of the Palace, a beautiful ambient space that connects all its parts. In one part, there is a fountain. At the same time, the lobby is dominated by a statue of Miho Pracat, the only deserving man who received a monument during the Republic.
