The fort lies right at the end of the Prevlaka peninsula. So just continue a long the road to the end.

When we were there in July 2021 the fort was being restore which meant that there was no access to the fort itself.

But if you go up the hill you will end up visiting some of the old military buildings from the Yugoslav era. We found it very interesting to explore these on our own and would recommend the tour just to be able to do that.

Remember to check if you’re suddenly using mobile signals from Montenegro. Taking a couple of pictures and forgetting that they were automatically uploaded from my mobile to the sky cost me 80 Euros ☹

If you fancy a swim, the fortress is not the ideal place because of the current, but just before the fortress you’ll pass Beach Vitaljina, which is a good local small beach.

This place is sooo pretty! The nature is gorgeous and the old fortress stunning with a beautiful view from the terrace👏🏻 It would be a great place for a hotel, restaurant or museum. It is a shame that is so neglected, I would like to see it reconstructed. But it is lovely anyway, worth going there:)

At the Southern Most tip of Croatia is Prelaka Nature Reserve, the reserve is totally unkempt but down a single track road is a derelict fortress from the 1870's. It was bombed in 1943 and this is still evident. There are some disused buildings around , the fortress is open to the public, unmaintained with no staff. Great views across the water towards Herceg Novi. Worth visiting if you like roaming around deserted old ruins. There's no facilities just nature and ruins.

This was one of the coolest places we visited on our trip! The fortress is much more interesting than historical ones as it's history is so recent. It is in quite good shape for an abandoned place apart from some damage from the 1943 German bombings. Also views of the bay of Kotor and the sister forts and caves are great!

Some reviewers have pointed out that it is closed but it is possible to enter from the top. If you aren't in shape to make the climb it is still worth going for the views and a swim at the beach.

Bring binoculars, good shoes and water.

Drove here from Cavtat. About a 30/40 minute drive. Lovely scenery, but the Fort itself turned out to be a complete waste of time. Since previous reviews the Fort appears to have been shut off from the public, with no entry signs and orange safety netting blocking the entrances.

I'm only leaving this review to prevent people having a wasted trip, as we did. The surrounding area is gorgeous.

We visited the area for the nature reserve and decided to check out the fortress whilst in the area. There is no charge for entering the fortress and there is free car parking directly beside it.

The fortress is an impressive structure from the car park, however, when you enter it there is a lot of graffiti. When you look at the fortress from the sea-side then there is a huge amount of damage from shelling.

There is a small plaque which commemorates the 1917 battle of the Otranto Straits and a bizarre interpretation board which refers to a desire to turn the fortress into a restaurant, nightclub and casino!
