Open Air Stage – Archaeological Site – Panoramic Gazebo. After six years of passionate and continuous work of a small group of enthusiasts, lovers of nature and heritage of the Dubrovnik Old City, headed by the project’s initiator and leader Andro Vidak, Orsula Park was opened for visitors.
This wonderfully cultivated district – which naturally blends with the existing gazebo on the Adriatic Highway above the Orsula area, offering a magnificent view of the Old City and the surroundings – abounds in valuable historic materials, intriguing legends and positive energy. Apart from being a place where one can enjoy nature and the view, the park was conceptualised as a unique open air stage for cultural and entertaining events. Lot of them will be organised during this summer.
