Today it houses the Museum of the Croatian War for Independence. Hike to another part of the mountain on paths known only to locals.

Rock Climbing Lesson in Dubrovnik

8. Rock Climbing Lesson in Dubrovnik

There is a lime stone rock 15 minutes drive from Dubrovnik town equipped with sports climbing paths with different difficulty levels. Grades range from 4b to 7a, so it offers a quality day of climbing for various climbers, and is also a very good place to have your first climbing experience. Your instructors will give you a short briefing on rock climbing basics, safety, use of equipment, and provide you with harness, rock climbing shoes and a helmet. Tour guides are experienced climbers, so you can learn how to climb in a safe and controlled environment. Don't worry, they climb with guests with a style of climbing called "top rope", where the rope runs from your instructor, who is belaying you up through the anchor at the top of the climb and back down to your harness. This allows you to focus on movement, technique, and getting stronger instead of worrying about falling. Get involved and create a great memory of your holiday.
