About Fort Revelin

It is hard to believe that the great Fort Revelin was built in a hurry, but this was the case when, in the mid-16th century, the Ragusan Republic faced a threat from Venice. Indeed, all public works ground to a halt in aid of this project. Intended to defend Dubrovnik’s eastern side, Fort Revelin is an imposing stronghold often referred to just as “Revelin”. Today, it is also home to the city’s archaeological museum.
