How to transport yourself in Dubrovnik…

  • By Bus

The easiest way to move yourself from Lapad to the historic center is by bus. The buses in high season drive every ten minutes and sometimes even more frequently. You buy for a few euros a ticket and if you are in possession of the “Dubrovnik card” it is for free. The only downside is that the air conditioning in the bus often won’t work or is not  so it can be very hot in the bus. This is especially in the summer months very uncomfortable.

  • By Calbe Car

Dubrovnik Cable Car is one of the most beautiful sights of the city. The cable car takes you in four minutes from the city to the top of Mount Srd. This summit is 405 meters. From this hill you have a beautiful view of Dubrovnik and the surrounding area. The cable car is a long time not been working because it had been damaged during the war, but today it is one of the most popular attractions of the city. In the cabin thirty people can be transported.

  • By Taxi

There are a number of operators in charge of taxi services in Dubrovnik. At last glance, the meter dropped at 27Kn with 9Kn per kilometre which is in line with taxi prices in the rest of Croatia. Naturally, you’ll pay extra for Sunday and holiday service and there is a per piece luggage charge.
Although expensive, the chances of a rip-off are slim since many taxi stands post authorized prices.

  • By Bicycle

As in many big cities you can go cycling, but whether it is really safe, I do not know. There are only found few separate cycle paths and traffic is pretty hectic. However, there are some spots to rent a bike. It’s not possible to cycly at the historic city walls of Dubrovnik, but there can be are some nice cycling routes around the city. A popular cycling route in Croatia runs between Split and Dubrovnik.

  • By Car

Dubrovnik driving is similar to driving every major city in the south of Europe. It is crowded and many motorists stuck to their horns. This ensures that many tourists don’t prefer to drive in Dubrovnik. Furthermore, you  need to know that the entire historical center of Dubrovnik is car free so. Parking is only a option around the city and then you will need to find a parking spot on time. The parking can be described as a disaster. Around the historic center are to be found a lot of parking spaces, but these are often filled early so you sometimes half an hour rounds are driving to find a place.
