Looking from the seaside of the old port, the fortified castle not far in front is just that. In addition, whether you take the cable car or overlook the panoramic view of the old city of Dub from the highway, you can clearly see this famous castle. As "Saint John's Castle". Today, it has been transformed into a maritime museum, which displays the glorious maritime history of Dubrovnik and its surrounding areas for hundreds of years.
St. John’s Fortress, also known as St. Ivana Fortress, is located on the sea on the southeast corner of Dubrovnik’s Old Town, adjacent to the Old Port. The fortress is surrounded by the sea on three sides, and there is a trail around the bottom of the fortress. Visitors can go around the fortress along the trail, and the sea is below the trail. There is a dike connected to the fortress. There are benches on the dike. I walk here in summer by the sea and sit on the benches to rest. The sea breeze brings a burst of coolness. When night falls, the lights are gradually lit, and you can enjoy the night view of the pier on the opposite side and the ancient city on the mountain.
