There are 3 very good reasons to visit Fort Lovrijenac: 1. It offers marvelous views on the city walls of Dubrovnic and the pretty little bay in front. 2. It is amazingly quiet, so you can walk around and take pictures in peace. What a relief after the crowded old town and city walls of Dubrovnik! 3. It is a... More

Luckily some other tourists helped us to find the fort as it isn't well sign posted. Entry price was included from the city walls walk and I am so pleased that we did this little extra. The walk up from the edge of the old town wasn't a problem for me with my new hip but my companions needed to... More

There's not much inside the fort but the views across to Dubrovnik Old Town are beautiful and Game of Thrones fans can relive the scenes filmed there as the Lanister Red Keep.

We weren't sure how to get to the fort but luckily another tourist showed us. It is a hard walk up to the fort but the views are worth it. Not much information about the fort but still enjoyed it.

The fort is well preserved and has an interesting history. It is the sight of many scenes from the series.

Lovely views. We went at the perfect time, which was about an hour before sunset, as it was cooler and there were hardly any other tourists, even though it was early August. There are quite a lot of steps to walk up to get to it, but it's worth it. Make sure you keep your tickets from the wall if... More

This fortress stands outside the walls and is accessed by a steep set of steps, best accessed by going down the passageway behind the bus stops. It is a great way to view Dubrovnik, although the climb can be tiring on a hot day - take after or visit in the morning/evening. The fortress has been left bare, with no... More

I liked that this place was included in the ticket for the city walls, but if you are not a student, aka adult paying full price, go to this place first, pay the entrance of 30 kuna and go to the city walls after and pay 40 kuna. Saves you 20 kuna :) GoT fans - look for locations used... More

If you get the ticket for the walls (which you really must) then access to Lovrijenac is included and advantage really must be made of this. It's quite easy to miss but the gardens surrounding it are beautiful, with great views, and the fortress is impressive but the views from the fortress itself are irreplaceable. Even on the city walls,... More

We visited on a game of thrones tour of Dubrovnik (viatour). It was so quiet, I think a lot of visitors miss it. The views over the old town were spectacular. A lot of scenes for GOT were filmed in the fort and on the way up to it. Definitely worth a visit.
