15 minutes walk uphill from Virpazar brings you to the fort, which has been extensively restored in recent times. We paid 1 Euro entry fee and had a wander around inside - not a great deal to see in terms of historical or architectural significance...More

If you're staying at Virpazar, def worth visiting. Still under renovation, would be interesting to see how it's going to be in the future. Stunning views over the lake.
