Sponza Palace in Dubrovnik, Croatia

When the Sponza Palace was built in 1522, it was a customs office and a bonded warehouse. It survived the 1667 earthquake so an inscription about honestly weighing shipments can still be seen over the loggia. Towards the top is the seemingly ever-present statue of Saint Blaise. Palača Sponza now houses the city’s archives with thousands of public records and manuscripts dating back to the 12th century.
