It’s a cool castle but you can’t get in probably for safety reasons.

Nice intro to the fascinating history of the area. Slightly scary and steep stairs inside to get to the top but a must-do. Definitely worth a look and good value for money. Oh and you can practice your hand at archery for a small fee ?

An interesting castle. Reasonably priced. 30Kn adults 20 Kn kids. Great views inside, a long video on the history but the up and down to get up the largest tower could do with a lot more organisation. Literally it is all go one way until a gap which can make a long wait. Would be 4 stars except for this. Worth putting up with and definitely worth a visit.

The fortress was built when Dalmatia came under the protectorate of the Republic of Venice. Today, you can see the walls connecting the three towers of the fortress. On the highest tower is an observation deck with a beautiful view of the sea and yachts. The stairs inside the tower are steep and narrow, it can fit one person, so you had to wait to go up. Nearby there is a soccer stadium for 1,000 spectators. The tower is now mostly used for cultural events. Also this tower is often used by filmmakers. Admission is paid.
