Europe sees an influx of tourists year-round and one of the more popular tourists destinations is Croatia. This Central European countries is home to numerous resort towns, coastal cities and villages that give off a distinctive charm. One popular city, in particular, is the coastal city of Dubrovnik located on the coastline of the Mediterranean sea and the famous Dubrovnik Cable Car. This town is a must see when you visit Croatia!
Dubrovnik which is a UNESCO World Heritage site is known as The Pearl of the Adriatic, a nickname earned by its beauty which attributes to its popularity. When it comes to riding the cable car, proper research must be conducted so you and your travelling companions enjoy the best possible experience. First and foremost is knowing which type of ticket to buy. There are one-way and round-trip tickets offered for the cable cars and there also special packages as well such as going on a forest safari and finishing up with a cable car ride.
When you visit Dubrovnik, for sure make plans to visit the Cable Car, it is one of the fun things to do for a day trip! Next is making sure you understand what you're going to see on the Dubrovnik Cable Car and as you may assume, you will see some of the best Dubrovnik has to offers as far as sightseeing goes. From historical sites such as the battlegrounds where Croat troops fought Napoleon's armies centuries ago to the quaint buildings in the Old Town of Dubrovnik with the walls of Dubrovnik. Also a wonderful sea view from the high view of the cable car, you can see the vast Adriatic Sea as it sparkles in the sunlight and up ahead the imposing Mount Srd Dubrovnik.
Once on Mount Srd Dubrovnik, you will be handed the opportunity to explore the historic Fort Imperial where even more scenic views await. After getting off the cable car, there is an opportunity to enjoy drinks at the bar located on the mountain and overlook the surrounding islands of the Dalmatian coast while enjoying the aforementioned drink. When you're done enjoying the bar, you can look around not only Fort Imperial, but many of the buildings in Old Town and the old city as whole from the mountain's point of view, there you will see not only more structures that have been carefully preserved for centuries but will be able to fully immerse yourself in the surrounding nature of being near the top of the mountain as the wildlife freely grazes around the area while you grab hundreds of pictures of the environment.
When it's time to leave, there will be a smooth descending down the mountain and into Old Town where traditional Croatian drinks, food and other activities await. You can also use this opportunity to observe how the old town Dubrovnik looks in the evening from a bird's eye perspective and take some last-minute photos.
There are several buses that stop just in front of the cable car. From the main bus station, you can take the bus service line 8 which will get you to the cable car. We strongly suggest checking with the public transport company for the timetables because there are other bus lines that also stop at the cable car. If you are with a group an option would be to arrange a minibus.
Just a few tips, obviously choose a clear day so you can enjoy the view. The mounting is 415 meters (1,352 feet) high! On clear days expect to get a magnificent view of the Adriatic coast with views up to 56 kilometers (35 miles). Go early morning to avoid the crowd, it can get busy, you will not be the only tourist, especially during the summer months. If you are planning to visit at sunset then be on time as there will be others with the same idea and there will be queues. And don't forget to take your camera to photograph an unforgettable experience. Enjoy!
