Fort Lovrijenac, Dubrovnik

(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
See the castle on a cliff, Fort Lovrijenac, one of Dubrovnik's most recognizable sights, and a detail from HBO's "Game of Thrones." Sitting 37 m (121 ft) above sea level, the fort dates back to 1018, when it was intended to protect the western part of Dubrovnik. Today, you can witness some of the events that take place at the site, which is sometimes compared with Gibraltar. Climb the 175 steps to the fort to see some of the best views of the city and the bay. Look for cannons that were designed by the leading local cannon caster of the epoch.

  • Yet again lots more stairs to reach the top but once you get there the views out to see and over the Old city is breathtaking. If you keep the admission ticket from the city walls you get in free here...  more »
  • Old town, West, South, entrance wall tour ticket at the fortress to defend against the enemy in the North. Rocky stairs, received the ticket inspection at the entrance, the entrance is sizzling replied this staircase in the hot summer. While I hiihii walked up the stairs. Fort built to defend against a pure little entrances are guided tours are recruited locally, so was very lively. In the Hall inside was in preparation for the event. Preparing for the Festival. This fortress is seasonal nature of fortress, there are 6 m thickness of the wall. Couldn't seem to penetrate completely in the shells of the time. Cannons were directed to the South and West, had even been opened between many battlements and cannons on the north side. One reason was to defend the independent marine Liberty City Dubrovnik may be interesting if not interested in the Citadel and fortress not elsewhere, but, and this is a place not to be missed in that sense.
