represents one of the biggest and best-preserved Austrian fortifications on the Adriatic. The fortress was built on the small, rocky isle of Lastavica in 1853. Walk around the well-preserved structure and try to determine what areas were used for sleeping quarters, toilets, and ammunition stocks. The fortress served as prison during 1918 Boka uprising and as a concentration camp by Italian fascists during World War II. Today, the only inhabitants of the fortress are wild rabbits and seagulls. You can swim, snorkel, and scuba dive while on the island. Nearby attractions include Zanjic beach, Arza Fortress, and the Blue Cave.
