Dubrovnik Cable Car Experience

For enjoying the most beautiful views of Dubrovnik and islands, head to the top of Mount Srđ above the city.

The easiest way to get there is a pleasant 4-minute cable car ride (runs all-year round). The cable car cabins (holding up to 32 passengers) run frequently throughout the day. During the summer months, the queues can be long, so be sure to get there early enough to avoid waiting.

Once there, you can capture the most stunning photos of the whole Old Town, the City walls and the islands lying just off the coast of Dubrovnik.

Or opt for e-tuk tuk tour, which takes you to 2 best panoramic spots - Dubrovnik bridge and Mount Srđ!

Getting to the cable car

  • From Old Town: The cable car station is located above the Old Town so it's very easy to get there if you find yourself within the City walls. It's just a couple of minutes on foot. Walk up Boskoviceva street from Stradun to the top (just bear in mind that steps are little steep), turn right and walk until you reach parking lot. There you'll find stairs leading to the cable car station. Alternatively, head to Pile Gate or Ploce Gate and take a scenic route around the City walls (it will take around 10 minutes).

  • From cruise/ferry port: For visitors arriving from the cruise port the easiest way to get here is to take the city bus no.8 which will drop you on the spot. Otherwise, take any bus running to Pile Gate, then get off and walk toward the cable car.
