The old fort is probably the highest point of the island but you can see all angles from here.

A massive hill to climb to get to this fort but the views are outstanding. Also the fort is in good condition so you can walk in and even climb to the top

Beautiful place, but beware if u come here whit the plan to travel to Sali or Kornati, there is no transportation, only a taxi wich may cost 300-400 Kuna,

Amazing place with breathing views. The hike all the way to the top of the island was easy and anyone can do it with a minimum effort. My sister-in-law was with my niece in a stroller and she didn't go to the fort with us, but they stayed and played with the peacocks and they had a really good time to.

Topography of Terror

The Topography of Terror (Topographie des Terrors) is an outdoor and indoor history museum. It is located on Niederkirchnerstrasse, formerly Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, on the site of buildings which during the Nazi regime from 1933 to 1945 were the headquarters of the Gestapo and the SS, the principal instruments of repression during the Nazi era.

The buildings that housed the Gestapo and SS headquarters were largely destroyed by Allied bombing during early 1945 and the ruins demolished after the war. The boundary between the American and Soviet zones of occupation in Berlin ran along the Prinz-Albrecht-Strasse, so the street soon became a fortified boundary, and the Berlin Wall ran along the south side of the street, renamed Niederkirchnerstrasse, from 1961 to 1989. The wall here was never demolished.
