Island of Lokrum

Interesting
This tiny island rich in dense vegetation lies opposite the walled city. In 1023, the Benedictines founded a monastery here. Closed during the Napoleonic occupation, it was replaced in 1859 by Maximilian of Habsburg's summer residence and abotanic garden was planted with exotic plants. The French were responsible for theroyal fort (1806) which commands a fine view of Dubrovnik to the north-west. The island's rocky coastline is equipped with countless ladders for bathers, but it doesn't have a beach.
