Geocache Description:

This is one of a group of six geocaches, the first to be placed since Montenegro gained its independence in 2006. All are located around the Bay of Kotor. It is a fine example of an Austro-Hungarian Fortress.


USE GREAT CARE TO HIDE THIS CACHE WELL AND AVOID MUGGLES! Park car at - N42 23.746, E018 45.818 The fort is an amazing example of Austro-Hungarian military architecture dated 1886. Surrounded by a dry moat, it has an enormous steerable gun emplacement guided by lookouts in protected bunkers using speaking tubes to guide the gun aimers. The cache is hidden within the boundaries of the fortress which dominates the approaches to the Bay of Kotor. A torch will be required and some exploration first inside and then outside the fort will be needed. Take care and do not attempt to scale the broken spiral staircase to the turret operators' position which is particularly dangerous. Please support "CACHE IN - TRASH OUT" to make Montenegro a clean environment http://www.geocaching.com/cito/
