Old fortress, symbol of Croatian people. Great reminder how it looked like in old times. Old architecture and nature in one.

Definitely worth the drive if youre on the coast. Great viewpoint from the fortress of the entire region. Makes for great panorama shots. Museum humble but interesting. Nice church in the fort itself.

Best Way is by car. Or take a private transfer tour. By car distance from Dubrovnik is about 4 hours.
