Descend the corridors of Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum 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. You can plan Dubrovnik trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Part of the wall walk and its highest point. Lots of steps up to each level but the view over the old city is well worth the effort. In crowds it is difficult but in winter easy except that surfaces.....  more »
  • We paid for the walk around the fort which included this tower as well, well worth the money and extremely impressive.  more »

  • A hidden gem, quiet as most people were confusing it with city walls. Has good views for the price and a small but interesting museum.
