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.

  • nice place!
  • Fortress that is located at the entrance of the Boka Bay. It was built at the mid 19 th century from the Austro-Hungarians. At first it was used as a protection to control the entrance of the Bay. During the WW1 and WW2 it was used as a prison where horrible crimes and torture of the local people happened. Today it represents monument that is not protected on a proper way. Still it is very attractive and visited place. A couple of years ago horror movie was filmed in this location.
