Fort Bokar offers impressive panoramas of the city and the sea beyond; however, for the best views of the structure itself, continue on to the Fort Lovrijenac battlement. With a City Walls admission ticket, you can access both Fort Bokar and Fort Lovrijenac, plus St. John’s Fortress and the Minčeta Tower. To combine your visit with attractions such as the Dubrovnik Cable Car, book a package deal at a reduced price.
