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.

  • located outside the city walls, this fort is very interesting with its architecture and has a delightful sea view point. For lovers of Game of Thrones, it will remind you of some scenes of the film. the city is filled with shooting locations. There are also steps to climb to get there.
