Tour description

Hrtar Fort is located 13 km north of Visegrad. It is located on both sides of the river Drina with more significant fortification on the right bank. The main purpose of Hrtar is to protect the crossing through the shallower part of the Drina's riverbed. On the left bank of the Drina are the remains of a fortress with at least two towers, which also controlled the road to Zepa town, located at the Drina River downstream. On the right bank of the Drina, high on the ridge are the remains of ramparts and three round towers. Within the ramparts are the remains of an elongated building that most likely served to house the crew. There are several smaller caves on this side and the lowest one was used as a repository and a space for monitoring the crossings on the Drina. Old town Hrtar has not been archaeologically explored.

It is not known when Hrtar Fort was built. She belonged to Pavlovic royal family.The fort is part of their defense complex on the Drina. In addition to Visegrad, ten kilometers north of Hrtar, near the mouth of Zepa into the Drina, is the Vratar, in the east there is Dobrun, and on south at the mouth of Lim in the Drina there is Fortress Brodar.
