Sažetak
The article deals with the fact that some fortifications retain their function for many centuries. The question is how this role could be kept despite the incredible development of weapons in that long period. Obviously certain positions permanently remained of strategic interest, and fortification engineering strived to make them defensively effective by adaptation of the standard forms. Author analyses this phenomenon on Dalmatian fortresses of Knin and Klis, which were governed by the Venetian Republic for a significant part of their history. After the withdrawal of the Turks in the Morean war the fortress of Knin was modernised, thus becoming a first-range Venetian fortress. In addition to the adapted bastion structures, in these Venetian fortresses elements inherited from the Middle Ages (falsabragha/faussebraye, tenaglia/tenaille) can be found, now used in modern and original ways. Apart from the two elevated fortresses (Knin, Klis), there is the example of Drniš, where on the local plateau a bastion belt was erected in addition to an existing older fortress. Finally, the case of the detached fort of S. Giovanni in Šibenik is mentioned, as an example of difficulties in controlling an unfavourably configured site.
