Dubrovnik Cable Car

Croatia > Dubrovnik

For spectacular views over the city of Dubrovnik and beyond, take a ride on the Mount Srd cable car. The four-minute journey takes you to a 778-metre-high plateau, where you'll be greeted with stunning views of the blue Adriatic and the surrounding area including Bosnia and Montenegro. There's also a restaurant, Panorama, at the top in case the ride makes you hungry! At around 20 euros a pop, it's a tad pricey - but money can't buy the sense of wonder and awe you'll feel when you reach the plateau. Hop on the cable car just before sunset to catch it at its best.

How to get there

There are a few different ways to reach the entrance to the cable car. The quickest is by walking up the stairs from Stradun (the main street) along Boskoviceva ulica street towards Buza gate. From there, you walk across the parking lot and climb the stairs to the cable car.

If you're visiting Dubrovnik on a cruise ship, you can take the #8 bus or a taxi from Port Gruz to the entrance of the Cable Car.

Helpful tips

  • If you'd rather save your money and climb the mountain by foot, there are hiking trails running alongside the cable car.
  • Be sure to visit the fascinating Museum of Croatian War of Independence, which is housed in the Fort Imperial, while you're there.
  • You can buy your ticket on the cable car (and with a credit card), so don't stress if you don't have time to purchase it beforehand.
  • Avoid the heat (and queue) by going in the early morning or evening.
