Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web
represents one of the biggest and best-preserved Austrian fortifications on the Adriatic. The fortress was built on the small, rocky isle of Lastavica in 1853. Walk around the well-preserved structure and try to determine what areas were used for sleeping quarters, toilets, and ammunition stocks. The fortress served as prison during 1918 Boka uprising and as a concentration camp by Italian fascists during World War II. Today, the only inhabitants of the fortress are wild rabbits and seagulls. You can swim, snorkel, and scuba dive while on the island. Nearby attractions include Zanjic beach, Arza Fortress, and the Blue Cave.

  • It has a fantastic view of the island, however it is now filthy. Everywhere, trash lying around and it seems here to take care of no one.

  • As attractions in this part of the entrance of the Boko-Kotor Bay is not much, then this visit is probably worth it. You can go on a private boat, finding her on the beach Mirišta or Žanec for 20-30 €, we joined the holidaymakers at Art Media. The main thing is to choose a small boat with a small number of tourists. The journey typically includes the blue cave and Mamula. The fortress itself is boring enough, found debris, not caring. Probably will be interesting only to lovers of history, otherwise, only if there is free time and nothing to do.

  • Site still in its own juice (no service is done) so be careful during your visit, parts of the fortress are difficult to access and really limits security level. This aside, the visit of the fortress is worth seeing, it reveals the conditions of detention of the prisoners, moving testimony from a bygone era
