A stroll around the museums of Dubrovnik may be off-limits due to the coronavirus pandemic but you can still soak up the culture with a virtual walk around the exhibitions. A number of museums in Croatia has got creative and uploaded a virtual walk-through their displays and artefacts.
In fact, it is proving very popular as people are stuck on the couch around the world and looking for some new, online experiences, and a dose of culture.
All museums across Croatia were closed with a decision from the Civil Protection Headquarters last week.
Two museums in Dubrovnik are currently offering a virtual tour of their exhibitions, the Rector’s Palace - Cultural and Historical Museum – with a permanent exhibition of paintings, furniture and interesting objects from the 16th to the 19th centuries in the ambient salons of the Rector's Palace, the seat of the Government and Rector of the Republic of Dubrovnik, as well as collections of old Dubrovnik coins, medals, seals, coats of arms and weapons.
And the Rupe (Granary) Ethnographic Museum – with it permanent exhibition showing the storage of grain, and presenting the traditional economy and rural architecture of the Dubrovnik area with festive costumes.
