  • Certainly, IMHO, fortification "Pearl" of Dubrovnik is the most powerful Tower of fortecii-Mincheta (Minčeta), called on behalf of the family Minchetich, on whose land it was built. Initially in the year 1319 continues under Nikephoros Ranzhina gave her a square shape. And only in the process of restructuring of all towers of the fortress, which began after the fall of Constantinople in 1453 year and under the supervision of the architect Michelozzo di Bartolomeo to their adaptation to the latest methods of warfare, Mincheta acquired the current-round-shape. Check out the erection of the tower and nearby parts of the walls are already on draft Croatian native Zadar-Yuri Dalmatians (in Italy better known under the name of Giorgio da Sebeniko) in 1460. Mincheta Tower has two observation platforms (on the first and second tiers). The upper edge of the lower tier has its walls with square battlements, and completing the second tier is decorated with carved stone belt. COGS fortress support stone console and it sill does not defensive, but rather an aesthetic function. Walk along the fortifications of Dubrovnik walls poljubasu will lead you to the tower and from there you can do simply amazing photos! Recommend!

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.
