Dubrovnik, as of last night, has a new attraction that is sure to interest locals and tourists. The Dubrovnik City Walls are the most popular attraction in the whole of the city with around a million visitors every year. They embrace the entire ancient city and are iconic. Now a part of these very walls is open to the public after 550 years.
The highest point of the defensive walls is the Minčeta Fortress. It is located on the north side of the walls and was named after the Menčetić family, who owned the ground the tower was built on.
Whilst visitors in the past have marvelled at the views over the terracotta roofs of the city from the top of the fortress now you can visit the renovated interior. After a two-year reconstruction period, which cost around 2.5 million Kuna, the interior of Minčeta is open as well as a part of the western walls.
