Fort Lovrijenac, Dubrovnik

(750+ reviews on the web)
Historic Site
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. Arrange your visit to Fort Lovrijenac and discover more family-friendly attractions in Dubrovnik using our Dubrovnik holiday planner.

  • This was included in our city wall ticket and we almost didn't go but so glad we did. The walk over was very pretty, around a nice cove and through some neighborhoods that were very pretty. The views ...  more »

  • As someone who hasn't seen Game of Thrones, this is still a beautiful area and amazing views. Well worth the trip to the top.
  • Used in the "Games of Thrones" series. Nice place. Lovely views.
  • Really not cheap but this does give you the best views of the city and the wall goes all around. Im glad i went even though i thought it was expensive.
  • It's an interesting place to see and the view is stunning, but with ticket price of 50kn it doesn't deserve 5 stars.
  • Interesting small fort that was used for some TV show films like Game of Thrones. There isn't alot to see and it is pretty bare. Plan for maybe half an hour here. Entrance is included with the City Wall ticket.
