Dubrovnik Cable Car, Dubrovnik

To enjoy the best possible view of Dubrovnik and the surrounding area, make sure to get yourself on top of the Srd Mountain, 778 meters above sea level. The best way to reach it, undoubtedly, is the Dubrovnik Cable Car. One of the city's top attractions, it was built in 1969 and has since been enthusiastically used by millions of tourists anxious to capture the breathtaking panoramas of the Adriatic sea, Dubrovnik's Old Town, Island Lokrum and the neighboring Elaphiti islands: Koločep, Lopud and Šipan.

On a clear day, this vantage point affords view as far as 60 km (37 miles) away. No wonder that the nearby Imperial Fortress, built in the early 19th century by none other than Napoleon Bonaparte himself, precisely in time for his birthday, was strategically placed upon this privileged position. The best time to take photos is around sunset.

The cable car line employs two carriages, each carrying up to 30 people, making regular three-minute runs to the top of the Mount. Once up there, you may also want to visit the Museum of Homeland War featuring original documents, artifacts and authentic photo and video materials related to the Balkan armed conflict of 1991-1995. Also, at the upper Cable Car station there are a restaurant, café and a souvenir shop.

Tip:
The most convenient way to buy tickets is directly at the cable car stations. Payments can be made either in cash – with Croatian kuna only (no foreign currencies accepted) – or by credit cards.
