Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum, Dubrovnik

4.8
#5 of 92 in Museums in Dalmatia
Descend the corridors of Upper Corner Tower Foundry Museum and explore a well-preserved 15th-century foundry. A great collection of tools, pincers, keys, and canon ball molds lies amid stone warehouses, telling the story of the Republic of Ragusa's firepower program--developed in great secrecy in the period between Venetian and Ottoman suzerainty. An informative and enthusiastic guide will tell you all about geostrategy on the Adriatic, as well as the maritime strength of this small trading republic. The museum can be a little hard to find; look for a wooden door hidden next to a basketball court. You can plan Dubrovnik trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.

  • Ikke så lett å finne frem, men var så absolutt verdt det når vi fant inngangsdøren. En spennende historie om et smelteverk datert langt langt tilbake. Guiden er bare et ekstra pluss på besøket.  more »

  • This is a hidden gem by the city wall. With 30 Kuna, one can escape the overly crowded Dubrovnik and the city wall. You would have the view of the old city, Fort St Laurence, Minceta tower and bird's-eye view of the Pile Gate. I was really glad that I found the entrance.
  • Nice people and a good audio tour, but not very big. Great historical artifacts.
