This is Saint Johns which is part of the walls not the fortress opposite Dubrovnik. It shows the level of in depth research some people do when they don't even know what landmark they are standing on. The fort has the Maritime Museum and Aquarium. It faces the marina.

Had to pay 30 kunas per person to get in which allowed us to go up to the roof and admire the views. Don't expect a great deal to see or do in the fortress although it does from time to time hold plays

We loved it and many people seem to forget it is included in the City wall price.

If you are going to do the city walls (which you of course should), suggest you buy the 1 day Dubrovnik card for 130 kuna per person. Walls are 70 each, throw in this museum for another 40, then you can just hit one other and make it a good deal (i.e. the Rector's palace or the Ethnographic museum). The... More

Fabulous views and not as difficult to climb to as the walls. Well worth the visit. I'd recommend it.
