A new attraction, which is part of the spectacular Dubrovnik City Walls, has opened last night.

Dubrovnik’s most popular tourist attraction, which annually attracts over one million visitors, has a new attraction open to the public – Minčeta Fortress.

Minčeta Fortress, named after the Menčetić family who owned the land the tower was built on, is the highest point of Dubrovnik’s defensive walls and has opened again to the public.

“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”, The Dubrovnik Times writes.
