Dubrovnik's Gibraltar

Fort Lovrijenac is typically referred to as "Dubrovnik's Gibraltar." The triangular-shaped fortress sits on a sheer rock that is 37 meters above the sea. Historians believe the fortress dates back as far as 1018; however, there are no records of the fort before 1300. According to legend, the residents built the fort to repel the Venetians from taking the city.

Today, Fort Lovrijenac is an important cultural attraction where theatrical performances are routinely held. A celebrated stage for plays like "Hamlet," the fortress is home to the annual Dubrovnik Summer Festival.
