Viewpoint Srđ (Dubrovnik)
Do you want to take a panoramic photo of Dubrovnik and its surroundings? Then we suggest you take the cable car from the Old Town to the hill Srđ for only 74 kunas (approximately 10 euros). Don’t forget to take your camera because the hill offers an incredible view of the island Lokrum and the Old Town of Dubrovnik. Apart from the beautiful view from 405 meters above the sea level, you will also be impressed by Fort Imperial, which was built back in 1810 by Napoleon. During the Homeland War, the fortress played an important role in the defense of the city. Near the fortress there is a stone cross which was a gift from the Archdiocese of Brač – Hvar to Dubrovnik. The cross is made of stone from the island Brač. If you are a fan of museums, in the fortress you can see an exhibition of all kinds of weapons and shells which fell on Dubrovnik during the war. After visiting the fort, you can relax in the bar or on one of the two panoramic terraces.
