I think that those who mention an admission fee may be getting Fort Mare mixed up with the Citadel as I don't recall seeing anything about having to pay, or for that matter any reason why you would need to. The Fort is really no...More

At 2018, entrance cost is 2 euro. You don't really get much for that! There are views to be had over the bay and town, but that special. There's Kanli Kula (citadel) at the top of town for the same price and that's far better...More

Forte Mare is one of the biggest atractions of Herceg Novi, a place from where you can have a great view over the bay and take great photos. The fee is 2 euros.

Brilliant view of Herceg Novi harbour, Lustica Peninsula and nearby beaches. Nice to walk around but shame there is little signage in English which would really bring it to life.

This entry price is 2€, and you do not get to see that much, but if you like a nice view, and care for old and historic buildings, then the price is not that bad. You get a good view over the bay and Herceg...More

Forte Mare is Herceg Novi's "lower" fortress and hulks over the bay. It must have been a very imposing sight for those entering from the Adriatic back in the day. Sadly, a chunk of the middle part of the fortress was cleared out and a...More
