Srdj is a hill located just above Dubrovnik. Here, after Napoleon and the army conquered the city in the past, the construction of the massive strategic fortress Imperial began, the construction of which was later completed by Austro-Hungary. Thus, during the Homeland War, the fortress had a defensive function for the Croatian army. To commemorate this, after the war a massive concrete cross was erected with a commemorative altar for all fallen fighters. Today on Srzh there is the Museum of the Homeland War and a beautiful cafe bar with a restaurant with an incredible view of the entire Dubrovnik, Lokrum and the surrounding area. You can easily reach Srdj by cable car, which is the starting point within the Old Town.
