 Society of Friends of Dubrovnik Antiques opened for public renovated historic architectural complex of the Mincet Fort.

'Works on the renovation of the fortress started in 2015, and cost between 2,5 and 3 million kuna,' president of the Society Niko Kapetanić said.

Mayor of Dubrovnik, Mato Franković officially opened the Renaissance fort and pointed that after years of poor cooperation between the City and the Society there is a time for common ground.

'It is not the question of how much  money City or Society gets from the tickets, the important thing is that the money is spent transparently,' Franković said.  

Minčeta Fort is a large circular tower with a massive battlement suspended by stone sup-porters. The first, smaller, quadrangular tower was constructed by Nikifor Ranjina in 1319. The Florentine architect Michelozzo Michelozzi gave the monumental present time form to the Fort, which was completed in 1464 according to the design of the Renaissance builder Juraj Dalmatinac.
