High on the cliffs in Dubrovnik High on the cliffs in Dubrovnik Ivana Smilovic

Tourists risk 80 metres high plummet for perfect view

By  Aug 19, 2017

Some people will go to any lengths to get the perfect view of Dubrovnik; even it is means putting their own lives in dangers. These two male tourists were spotted today on the walls of the Lovrijenac Fortress taking in the view of the Old City of Dubrovnik whilst dangling 80 metres above rocky cliffs.

The fortress, popular to fans of the Game of Thrones as it was the location of the Red Keep, is the only part of the Dubrovnik defensive system that is separated from the walls. It stands high on a rocky cliff overlooking the city and the views are spectacular, so there is no need to climb onto the stone walls to get a better one.

This behaviour is strictly forbidden and warning signs advise visitors of the rules. However these two thrill seekers decided to take matters into their own hands and risk everything for the view.
