We had Dubrovnik passes so it did not cost us any thing to visit this sight. There is a very small museum . Also there is a very good gift shop. And a lush green court yard for mediation.

I did not go inside the monastery last time I visited because I only got half a day so I was not aware of their opening hours. I checked on the net for you and apparently it is open from 9am to 6pm (5pm in the winter). I... More
