Cable Car Ride

Enjoy the best views of Dubrovnik with a trip to the top of Srd Hill on the cable car. Starting in Ploce, a 5 minute walk from the Old Town, you’ll travel high above the city, with views right out across the clear blue seas and the islands dotted around the coast. If you prefer, take the number 8 bus to the Old Town from Gruz Harbour to reach the cable car station.

As you travel higher and higher above Dubrovnik, looking down on the marketplaces and traditional red roofs below, you’ll really appreciate the city’s unique, dramatic location. See the city walls, harbour and the Adriatic beyond on this unmissable ride above the city.

Although the original cable car was destroyed during the War of Independence, it was rebuilt in 2010, so you’ll travel in a modern, glass walled cable car that holds up to 25 people at a time. In just three minutes, you’ll be 405 metres above sea level.

After arriving at the top, head to Restaurant Panorama and have a meal overlooking the city before browsing the souvenirs at the gift shop. Whatever you do, don’t forget your camera, as with views that stretch more than 35 miles on a clear day, the sight’s absolutely breathtaking.

Before getting back in the cable car, spend some time exploring Mount Srdj. Look around the Museum of the Croatian War of Independence at the Imperial Fortress. For an extra-special experience, take the cable car as the day starts to fade, and see the sunset from the summit.
