THE OLD HOSPITAL
The first modern hospital in Dubrovnik was built during the Austrian administration according to the designs of the German architect Kuna Waidmann. Its two-year construction was completed at the end of June 1888. It consisted of two patient wings with a total of 100 beds and a central administrative building. It was built with stone brought by ship from Korčula, and for the occasion a small pier was built on the sea side of the building. It served as Dubrovnik’s main hospital until the 1980s and the construction of the New Medical Center, i.e. today’s General Hospital, which is located at the foot of Petka in Lapad, in the Medarevo area. Today it is part of the University of Dubrovnik, and during the last renovation it was restored to its original appearance.
