The main feature of this port city is quite disturbing: the old town lies within the remains of a palace that belonged to one of the last Roman emperors.
The south port (Gradska Luka) is open to the south and a few times a year (late fall, winter, early spring) strong southwesterly winds (Lebic) can raise sea height to 1½ - 2 m in port, causing waves to crash over the north wall of the port. This condition is normally short-lived and over in less than 4-5 hours, after which seas abate very rapidly. Much of the harbor is protected from such winds so that it is possible to move vessels closer to the eastern breakwater (Lukobran) and avoid serious damage.
  • The bora can blow very strong in Gradska Luka, with gusts up to 90 kt (46 ms-¹). However, it is not considered dangerous for ships tied up within the port. Passenger ships, under bora conditions, are tied up closer to the north side of the port, since gusts are strongest at the breakwater to the south.
  • The jugo, or scirocco, raises a sea on the west side of Gradska Luka, affecting small boats, which must be moved for greater protection to other locations within the port. However, the larger vessels are secure under the strongest southeasterly winds, at their designated east-side pier locations
  • Gradska Luka has never been forced to close because of weather conditions. Even during the most severe wind event it is possible for large vessels to enter or leave the harbor area. Small boating, of course, must be curtailed during such events, both within and outside of the harbor entrance.

La principale particularité de cette ville portuaire est assez troublante : la vieille ville est située à l'intérieur des restes d'un palais ayant appartenu à l'un des derniers empereurs romains.

Le port du sud (Gradska Luka) est ouvert au sud et peu de fois par an (fin de l'automne, l'hiver, au début du printemps) de forts vents du sud-ouest (Lebic) peuvent augmenter la hauteur de la mer à 1 ½ - 2 m dans le port, provoquant des vagues passant par dessus le mur nord du port. Cette condition est normalement de courte durée (plus ou moins 4-5 heures), après quoi la mer se calme très rapidement. Une grande partie du port est protégée de tels vents de sorte qu'il est possible de déplacer les navires plus près de la digue de l'Est (Lukobran) et d'éviter de graves dommages.
   * La bora peut souffler très fort dans Gradska Luka, avec des rafales jusqu'à 90 nœuds. Toutefois, cela n'est pas considéré comme dangereux pour les navires immobilisés dans le port. Les navires de tourisme, dans des conditions bora, sont amenés plus près du côté nord du port, car les rafales plus fortes vont à la digue Sud.
   * Le jugo, ou scirocco, soulève une mer à l'ouest de Gradska Luka, touchant de petits bateaux, qui doivent être déplacés pour une meilleure protection à d'autres endroits dans le port. Toutefois, les grands navires sont en sécurité, quand souflent les vents les plus forts du sud-est, à leurs emplacements à la jetée E.
   * Gradska Luka n'a jamais été contraint de fermer en raison des conditions météorologiques. Même pendant les vents les plus graves, il est possible pour les grands navires d'entrer ou de quitter la zone portuaire. Les petits bateaux, bien sûr, doivent doivent être prudents au cours de tels événements, tant à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur de l'entrée du port.
