Citadel (Herceg Novi-Montenegro)
The Citadel Fortress is one of the most important points of the city’s defense, and is also known as Mezaluna. Today, it is located right next to the Old town. It was built on the very shore of the southern and eastern outskirts on the remains of much older forts. The fortress was damaged in the 17th century during the devastating earthquake and in the battles of the Venetians and the Turks. The Venetians then conquered the city, renewed and enlarged the fortress. A stone bridge over the promenade was also considered to be a part of the fortress. After the construction of the railway at the beginning of the 20th century, the Citadel was in great danger of being collapsed and its final crash occured immediately after the earthquake that struck Montenegro in 1979. Today there are only the remains.
