Game of Thrones!

Step back in time and enjoy the spectacle. With a little imagination you will think you are taking part in an episode of 'Game of Thrones.'

After a good walk up to the Fort you will get a lovely view over the city. Not for those who are unsteady on their feet but well worth the up hill walk and free for those who have purchased tickets for the walk around the old town walls

You get good views of this from the walls and from the shore, but it won't be open to the public for a while as part of the Dubrovnik 2020 plan

The fort is one of the highlights on the walk along the ancient fortifications of Dubrovnik Old Town. From the fort, you can see awesome coastal scenery of the Fort of St. Lawrence, making the Bokar Fort a good place for amazing photographs. Once you are done with your tour of the Dubrovnik Old Town and its city walls, you... More

Climbing lots of forts in and around Dubrovnik, they are all worth seeing. They remind us of the history and the many battles fort long ago. In good condition with lots of stairs! give it a go.

You cannot miss this substantial looking structure when entering old Dubrovnik through the Pile Gate. It overlooks a small, very clean, sheltered area of water that is protected by Fort Lovrjenac on the other side. However the structure is not so impressive from the inside but the two forts together must have been tough nuts to crack in past times.

A must for GoT fans. We visited with Dubrovnik Tours GoT tour, we were given an insight into the real history as well as GoT information. Not a lot to see when your not on a tour but the views are magnificent.
