You can’t avoid St. John’s Fortress if you’re around the harbour as it dominates the landscape. Parts of it are lit up by night so it’s worth a walk around the harbour at any time of day. The interior is a museum which can be...More

When I first looked up, I didn't think I could make the climb, but it wasn't at bad. Not much to see at the fort, but the view was great, wonderful breeze, and it wasn't crowded. Advice: go later in the day, take water, sit...More

If you go to Dubrovnik, this is a must see attraction. Also known as the King's Landing (Game of Thrones)

This was one of my favourite things to do in Dubrovnik. It only takes a short time but you get to experience a Napoleonic bunker while learning about the war in the 90s.

Went here as part of Game of thrones walking tour, well worth the 50 Croatian Kuna used to get in. Nice to see what it looks like and the sight of the city from the top is simply incredible.

We visited the inpressive St John's fortress on a guided walking tour whilst staying in the beautiful city of Dubrovnik. Well worth seeing and many other historic places of interest in Dubrovnik.
