Stepping back in time

Spectacular view from the fort- you will feel like you are moving back in time. We really enjoyed admiring the fortress and the surrounding bay with its crystal clean waters.

The history told to you by the local guide was great. His name was Oscey and made it interesting for the whole family.

Another beautiful site in this beautiful town, worth experiencing the location and feel to be in the history. Imagine the various attacks on this town and how this fort has survived those wars and still standing tall. A major location to protect the city from attacks and mainly protect the pile gate, the main entrance to the old town. Very... More

In order to appreciate this site it is important to know the history of attacks on Dubrovnik and how this part has stood out from the rest.

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
