A story about the Dubrovnik Cable Car goes back to 1969 when it started to transport the first passengers in Dubrovnik to the top of Srđ hill, was interrupted during the Croatian War of Independence. A 4 year long war is a theme of the new Museum of the Croatian War of Independence housed in the former 19th – century Imperial Fortress.
Visitors can enjoy breathtaking uninterrupted full panoramas of the Old Town, surrounding islands and Adriatic Sea from top of the hill as well as go on an adventurous ride with the Buggy Safari tour, visit the Ohrid pearl shop or the blacksmith shop.
Starting from 9 a.m. and continuing every half an hour with the last departure from the lower station half an hour before end of operation. Lower station for the cable car is located above the Old Town in the part of Dubrovnik called Ploče.
It can be reached in five minutes’ walk from the Old Town and the number 8 bus route from Gruž harbour to the Old Town will drop you off at exactly the right spot.
