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.

  • We visited this fort because we had some extra time on our last day in Dubrovnik. We arrived when they opened at 8 and were able to use our ticket to the wall to get in free. We spent about 45 minutes...  more »

  • Good view of Dubrovnik city walls from the outside. Entry is not free(50 kuna I guess). Only claim to fame is that game of thrones scenes were shot there. It's not a must visit place, go there only if you are a huge GOT fan.
  • Best views in Dubrovnik of the old town bar none. Absolutely gorgeous. We went here on our Game of Thrones tour and thoroughly enjoyed viewing sights we'd seen on the show.
  • Included in the city wall ticket - the fortress itself is quite small and you can walk it in 30 min. The views it gives you of old town and the wall is amazing. It is also gives you amazing photo op of the bay below Highly recommended.
  • You can watch a Shakespeare show there. A midsummer night's dream. Very cool. Take sweaters for the late night show. Cold!
  • Good for the price, comes with a discount for the walls. Great for a panorama of Dubrovnik old town but more information required on the history of the fort. Google or a guide are required.
