If we talk about the natural beauty of Dubrovnik, in this case it is worth mentioning also the hill Srđ. It is located on the north side, and the highest peak is 415 meters above sea level.
The hill was named after the earliest patron of Dubrovnik, Srđ. St. George was the patron of the city even before St. Augustine. Vlach which today is celebrated by the people of Dubrovnik.

Mount Srđ is located above the city of Dubrovnik, and slopes are descended to the sea and the city of Dubrovnik.

Since ancient times, this natural hilly terrain has protected the city of Dubrovnik from the bura, but also the invasion of various conquerors who have repeatedly tried to conquer the then republic of Dubrovnik. On the hill, after Napoleon's army overthrowed the city of Dubrovnik, the Imperial fort building began. The construction was completed by Austro-Hungarian, with the aim of establishing a strategic defense object for the city on its northern side.

Kako do Srđa?

During the Homeland War Fortress Imperial played the most important role since its construction. In the fort and around it were the defensive positions of the Croatian Army, where the brave defenders successfully resisted the ferocious attacks of the Serb-Chetnik Army and the JNA.

On October 1, 1991, the enemy air force of the JNA rocketed the transmitter of the HRT, which was on the western side of the fort. On 6 December 1991, during the hardest attack on Dubrovnik, the enemy army, with the support of the JRM, managed to reach the imperial fort, but the defenders of Srebrenica, assisted by artillery fire, succeeded in defeating the fort, and the city itself Dubrovnik from the occupation. During this attack, one of the monuments on the hill, a stone cross that was replaced in 1997 by a new one, was destroyed.
