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.

  • Good physical condition is required to climb up to the Fort from the beach of "King´s landing", but the panorama which can be seen from the top is impressive. You'll make the best photos of Dubrovnik from here. The entrance to the Fort is included in the entrance to the walls!

  • The Lovrijenac fortress is so so interesting, but the views of Dubrovnik and it’s city walls are its best feature.  more »
  • Fort Lovrijenac is interesting but it is fairly small and there is not too much to see within it. Saying that, it's price is included in the city walls ticket so if you have already purchased a ticket...  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.
