In the St. John Fortress, and accessed through the same entrance as the Dubrovnik City Walls, the Maritime Museum gives a vivid account of the Ragusan Republic’s maritime affairs. The collection showcases a number of original objects, votive paintings and maps pinpointing the locations of Dubrovnik’s trade colonies and consular services, all demonstrating the central role seafaring played in the rise of the state. You'll also find models of boats typical to the region in that era, such as galleons and carracks.
