Prevlaka peninsula is the most southern part of the Croatian territory, it is 45 min driving from Dubrovnik at the edge of Konavle countryside and Montenegro border. This peninsula has had a very strategical position for each country or government through the centuries, from the Austrian – Hungarian times, old Yugoslavian and communist time when it was the border between eastern block and NATO. Even in the modern times when it is a part of modern Croatian country, this last point of Croatian territory is deep located in the beginning of Boka bay and sea entrance to Montenegro.
During the past, different regimes used this peninsula as geostrategic point where they have built military complexes, bunkers, fortresses, tunnels, ports and observation points to control entrance to the bay of Kotor and southern Adriatic sea.
Today Prevlaka is a secret touristic attraction, abandoned, demilitarized zone where locals, mostly from the nearby villages Vitaljina and Molunat come for fishing, swimming, hiking, picking olives…. Still preserved in time, uncommercial, this military complex with 19th century Austrian fortress Punta Ostro, bunkers and picturesque bay, makes this place worth visiting and an ideal escape from Dubrovnik daily crowds.
We explore the area of the peninsula on the E bikes, starting point is village Vitaljina, after exploring countryside area and hill with observations military objects from time of Yugoslav army, we cycle down to beautiful bay which used to be Yugoslav army military bay and peninsula point with Austro Hungarian fortress. After sightseeing, from the peninsula we cycle back to village Vitaljina, where we left our car.
