Just beyond the eastern entrance to the Old Town Dubrovnik lies a big irregular square – shaped fort built during the 15th and 16th century outside the City Walls. Revelin served as the ultimate unconquerable fortress that guarded the eastern entrance and the city harbor against the potential Venetian military forces.
Revelin is surrounded by a wide defensive moat and the sea from its southern side.
With no enemies to protect Dubrovnik from, Revelin today is an unique artistic, historic and entertainment venue. While the ground floor hosts various art and cultural exibitions, the upper level features a virtual museum of Dubrovnik with large touch screen displays
Revelin and its terraces also serve as the perfect ambient for Dubrovnik Summer Festival performances.
Revelin is also the unexpected home of the city’s largest indoor nightclub with extensive DJ and concert program catered to Dubrovnik’s younger inhabitants and tourists.
