Gornji Ugao Tower, Dubrovnik
(5/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Descend the corridors of Gornji Ugao Tower and explore a well-preserved 15th-century foundry. A great collection of tools, pincers, keys, and canon ball molds lies amid stone warehouses, telling the story of the Republic of Ragusa's firepower program--developed in great secrecy in the period between Venetian and Ottoman suzerainty. An informative and enthusiastic guide will tell you all about geostrategy on the Adriatic, as well as the maritime strength of this small trading republic. The museum can be a little hard to find; look for a wooden door hidden next to a basketball court. For Gornji Ugao Tower and beyond, use our Dubrovnik family vacation planner to get the most from your Dubrovnik vacation.

Apart from most domestic utensils. Well-preserved...
