Renovation of Favourite Old Dubrovnik Promenade to Begin

Lauren Simmonds

Dubrovnik is gradually becoming a busier and busier city with less places to enjoy a quiet walk along the shore and listen to the gentle lapping of the sparkling Adriatic on the rocks, but one beloved old Dubrovnik promenade will soon be getting a ”lick of paint”.

As Morski writes on the 30th of January, 2020, following the successful completion of the public procurement procedure, the City of Dubrovnik and the selected contractor, TRAG d.o.o., concluded a contract for the complete and comprehensive renovation of a popular Dubrovnik promenade in Lapad – the Niko and Medo Pucic promenade, named after two brothers who were writers and politicians from a noble Ragusan family.

The contracted value of the investment stands at a massive 4.8 million kuna, VAT included, and the deadline for completion of works is 150 calendar days from the date of the contractor’s introduction to the job, which is planned for the very first days of February 2020.

The proposed procedure is intended for the rehabilitation of what are often referred to as lungo mare promenades with the aim of ensuring the safe movement of pedestrians and to enable access and use for persons with mobility difficulties and disabilities. All of the existing qualities of the much loved Dubrovnik promenade in question will be retained and emphasised, and better use of them will be made.

Among other things, the works include rehabilitation of the southern retaining wall, the installation of new public lighting, the renovation of the hydrant network with the placement of underground hydrants, the renovation of the swimming areas dotted along the Dubrovnik promenade, and the removal of old and the installation of new urban equipment.

A security fence will be erected along all of the open southern sections of the walkway, approximately 750 metres in length. Access to this Dubrovnik promenade is provided by a ramp from King Zvonimir’s promenade (setaliste Kralja Zvonimira) in the east and a ramp and a few steep stairs from Cardinal Stepinac street (Ulica kardinala Stepinca) in the west.
