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.

  • Many stone steps to be climbed before you get to the entrance and many more inside. The views from the top were worth the effort  more »
  • Just like many other places to visit in Dubrovnik, be prepared for another round of stairs, but you can have a rest at the middle of the road, where is small park and a few benches or you just can sit...  more »

  • Steep climb up to the fort. Pay on entry (or retain your city walls tour ticket for free entry). Lots of visitors (Game of Thrones filmed here and at the foot of fort in the bay). Fantastic views across to the city walls. Not much else to see. Toilets available. Worth a quick look around if you have the energy. Avoid on busy cruise ship days as many doorways are narrow.
  • Beautiful Scenery and if you have a good guide. It only enhances the experience. Dubrovnik Walking tours and get Josip for a guide. He's a local and very knowledgeable. We just did one with him and worth every penny! Take comfy shoes, it called a walking tour for a reason. The fort has a lot of steps, but he knows a few shortcuts.
