The most important public building in the time of the Ragusan Republic, the Rector’s Palace was home to Dubrovnik's ruler during his one-month mandate, the period when he was separated from his family to focus solely on matters of state. An inscription above the doorway to the meeting room says it all: "Forget your private concerns when working for the public." Today, the magnificent Venetian-style palace is a cultural history museum.
