Worth the expensive cable car ride for the views. You need to go into the exhibition in the Fort and climb up the steep stairs to the top for the best views. You can't get away from cables obstructing the view if you just stay at the cable car station. From the top of the Fort you can see up... More

Absolutely loved visiting Fort Lovrijenac in Dubrovnik that was first built to protect the Republic of Ragusa (as Dubrovnik was then known) from the preying hands of the Republic of Venice. Recommended to be visited in cooler hours in Summer Months, you can buy entrance ticket that will also included a visit on the Old City Walls of Dubrovnik. Immediately,... More

Entrance to this fotress is included with the fee paid to go around the walls. I think it is worth the climb (steep stairs) just for the view you'll see once you're on top. A must to visit for any Game of Thrones fans as this was a film location.

It is a massive undertaking that the Dubrovnik Republic undergo to build this fort to protect it freedom from the Republic of Venezia which was its rival in the medieval time. Just breathtaking!

Since we did the walls, we wanted to complete the picture by climbing to Lovrienac fort, and it is as well worth the climb, but there are really many stairs t get up there...

I agree with the reviews that say you could do with some explanation about the history of the fort - it clearly had an important job to do but you had to make that up in your own head! As with the city walls, the views are stunning and make the many steep steps worth it.

...The complete absence of any signage to actually explain the fort and its history! I agree this is an astonishing structure. Intact, impressive and clearly Game of Thrones material. In fact, you will want to take care on the steps, the terraces and within the building. It has the potential to be a dangerous place! What I really wanted to... More

Had to visit the Fort while near the Old City. It’s outside of the city walls and is also used extensively in Game of Thrones for the King’s Landing location shoots. The entrance is not obvious when you walk outside the walls – just a small staircase takes you down and around to the bottom near the water and then... More

This is free if you show your ticket for the main City Walls, otherwise you have to pay about £2. We had to take several stops on the way, plenty of benches supplied, as the steps are many. Game of Thrones fans, this is where they filmed Joffrey's Name Day.

This fortress offers a unique view of the old town of Dubrovnik and when you consider that it is included in the cost of admission to the city walls then it is a must do. It is quite easy to find and does involve a bit of a climb to get to the top. Game of Thrones fans will get... More
