03 Jan Venue of the Week – Sponza Palace in Dubrovnik
The magnificent Sponza Palace, located in the very centre of Dubrovnik Old Town is one of Dubrovnik’s most famous buildings that is ideal for a variety of event functions in Dubrovnik.
The construction of the Sponza Palace started in 1516 and the Sponza was built in a mixture of late Gothic and Renaissance styles. In the past, the Palace served a variety of public functions such as a customs house, trading place for businessmen of the Dubrovnik Republic, treasury and bank. Today, the Sponza Palace is still a multifunctional space, it is home to the city archives, a gallery space for changing art exhibitions, opening venue of the Dubrovnik Summer Festival as well as a popular venue for exclusive gala dinner events, meetings, welcome receptions, setting for various tailor made activities, private musical performance venue and more. Overall, the Sponza Palace is an excellent venue that can cater to various needs of all our conference and incentive clients.
DK Events recommends the Sponza Palace as an exclusive gala dinner venue. Due to the Palace’s impressive outdoor and indoor appearance visitors are bound to feel very privileged to have the pleasure of dining in this truly stunning Palace in the very centre of Dubrovnik Old Town. DK Events recommends either a modern dinner set up to contrast the Sponza’s rich historical background or a Renaissance themed dinner to complement the Sponza’s past. The group would be welcomed at the entrance of the Palace by drummers dressed in Dubrovnik Renaissance clothes. Inside the Palace guests will enjoy their welcome drinks listening to the sounds of Renaissance performers with plenty of photo opportunities so the guests can capture their wonderful dinner experience in Dubrovnik. An exquisite catered gala dinner will then be served, accompanied by a wide range of available entertainment options as well as lighting effects to create a special atmosphere and present the Palace in its true beauty.
