Fort Lovrijenac, Dubrovnik

4.5
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. A visit to Fort Lovrijenac represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Dubrovnik journey website to plot your vacation.

    an alternative to the funicular to have a nice view on the city, great for sunsets, free with the visit of the ramparts tickets

    I recommend taking a stroll of Dubrovnik to visit this beautiful place. The views are worth it. Only in the high season there's a lot of tourists.

    Stunning views; save your city walls ticket. It includes entry here. It's a bit tricky to find the entrance, but it's definitely worth the climb up. They show plays here during the Dubrovnik festival....  more »

    Amazing views from the top... a nice place the cost of the ticket is 50 HRK and plus one can see where the shooting of game of thrones was done

    Do the city walls and the fort. There is a ticket that includes both and it's worth it. The walls go around the whole city and you walk anti-clockwise as it's a one way system. This works well and was a great experience with beautiful views.

    A place to visit for Game of Thrones fans with many recognisable scenes having been filmed in and around the fort.

    Awesome views croon the top! Worth the walk up the stairs and a great place to see where the game of Thrones series was filmed as well.

    Two reasons to visit: (1) You get an amazing view of the old town (2) you will feel like into the fortress of Game of Thrones

Where to stay in Dubrovnik

One of Croatia's major tourist destinations, Dubrovnik remains one of the most expensive cities in the country, especially if you wish to stay in the old town at peak season. You can choose from upscale hotel rooms just east of the old town, but for budget-friendly beds you may have to go as far as the outskirts of town. Many locals rent small rooms in their private homes, so look for rental signs in windows or check with the city's tourist office.
