  • We took a taxi up to the fortress for 80kn total for 6 people, which is a good deal! Definitely worth the 40kn per person! Take a bottle of wine and/or beer at sunset and enjoy the gorgeous views!
  • Really worth the visit! Best views of this Croatian region! The castle climb has a great path and the views are rewarding. There is a bar inside the castle!
  • Beautiful views, hospitals inside, and a great hike. Be sure to follow the signs to get the and not Google maps, or you'll get lost.
  • Really great views of the city and amazing architecture! Worth the decent hike up the hill and entrance fee.
  • Very nice place with a very nice view of the port. The entrance is inexpensive, you will find some toilettes, a museum and a little cafeteria where you can find water and some ice cream.
