Dubrovnik Cable Car


A great way to get a bird’s eye view of Dubrovnik is to make the 405 meter ascent to the peak of Srdj hill.  Until last year this could only be done by foot (for the very fit) or by car (for the brave), but now a cable car takes passengers there from the Old Town in just 4 minutes.  The cable car station is located near the Ploce bus station, just 3-minutes walking distance from the Buza Gate entrance to Old Town.  There are 2 cable cars and each holds 30 people so wait times are generally short.


Once at the top there is a café bar and restaurant with a panoramic view of Dubrovnik and the islands.  There is also a souvenir shop, amphitheatre (available to rent for events), and a war museum dedicated to the conflict that consumed the region in the early 1990s.  Tickets are priced at 50 Kuna each way or 80 Kuna roundtrip for adults and 25 Kuna each way or 40 Kuna round trip for children ages 4 – 12.  Children under 4 are free.
