AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Check out this amazing drone video of a modern-era fortress in Montenegro, compliments of contributor FoxCreative. Fort Gorazda is situated near the town of Kotor, the principal city of Kotor Bay. The fortress was built in the late 19th century by Austria-Hungary as a means to protect their naval base in the Bay of Kotor. The fort saw some action during World War I as Austria-Hungary battled Allied-aligned forces, and was used by the Yugoslav Army until the country dissolved in the early 1990's.
Description: Fort Gorazda, Tvrđava Goražda is a fortification built by the Austro-Hungarian Empire near Kotor in Montenegro. The current fort was built between 1884–86 and replaced an earlier structure on the same site; its most notable feature is a 100-ton Gruson rotating turret on its roof, the last remaining example of its type. The fort was used by the Austrians in artillery duels against Montenegrin batteries stationed on Mount Lovćen during the First World War. The Montenegrins were unable to destroy it and were pushed out of range in 1916 by an Austrian offensive. The damage to the fort was repaired and its guns were removed to support the Austrian field army. It was used as a depot by the Yugoslav Army until as recently as the early 1990s. It was subsequently abandoned and can be visited by the public.
