Its height is 412 metres (1,352 ft), and its top is adorned with Fort Imperijal, built from 1806 to 1816, during the Napoleonic Wars. From the fortress, it is possible to see the walled city of Dubrovnik, Lokrum island, the Adriatic Sea and various local attractions (including restaurants and the Stradun). Srđ was once forested with oak trees which locals called dubrava (from the old Slavic word dub, “oak tree”), after which the city of Dubrovnik was named. The southern slope was once rich with pine forests, but in the second half of the 20 th century and during the 1991–95 Croatian War of Independence, the forest was almost completely gutted through numerous fires. The mountain was home to one of the fiercest battles of the Independence War, namely the Siege of Dubrovnik, and this is commemorated in a museum in Fort Imperial. Srđ has been developed as a tourist attraction, with a restaurant and a base for buggy safaris.
In the 19th century the city caught the eye of one of the more eccentric romantics of the era, Lord Byron, who proclaimed it the “Pearl of the Adriatic”. Byron is not the city’s only literary fan. Playwright George Bernard Shaw, who wrote Pygmalion, once said: “Those who seek paradise on earth should come to Dubrovnik.”
