Minčeta Tower (Dubrovnik)
Are you a fan of Game of Thrones and want to visit the place where some of the scenes were filmed? Then you should visit the Minčeta Tower, which is located at the highest point of north-western Dubrovnik. The fort was originally built in 1319 as a high reaching quadrilateral fort according the designs of local architect Ničifor Ranjina. The upgrade of the earlier quadrilateral fort (architect Michelozzo built a new round tower adapted to the new techniques of warfare and joined it to the new system of low scarp walls) was completed in 1464.
