Dubrovnik Cable Car Tours

191 Reviews
Dubrovnik’s distinctive orange cable cars speed 2,500 feet (778 meters) in about three minutes, from the lower station just north of the city walls to the top of Mount Srđ. During the ride, you can enjoy peerless views of Dubrovnik’s terracotta rooftops, the coastline of Dalmatia, and archipelagos sprinkled across the Adriatic Sea.  

The Basics
Originally opened in 1969, the cable car was destroyed in the 1990s during the Croatian War of Independence but reopened in 2010. A cable car ride is the best way to access panoramic views from the summit of Mount Srđ, 1,300 feet (405 meters) above sea level. Once you take in the lofty views, head to the souvenir shop for Dalmatian olive oils and landscape paintings, or to Panorama restaurant for traditional Croatian dishes. The Napoleonic-era Fort Imperial also lies on the summit—a historic structure that saw intense action during the Siege of Dubrovnik in 1991. 

A city highlight, the Dubrovnik Cable Car is featured on many city tours, including walking tours, buggy safaris, and shore excursions. You can also prebook round-trip tickets online to secure your spot and avoid the hassle of purchasing in destination. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Young children must be seated in a stroller and kids up to 12 years old must be supervised by an adult during the cable car ride.
  • Passengers are required to stand still during the ride so their movement does not cause the cable car to swing.
  • No food, drink, pets, or bicycles are allowed on the cable car. 
  • Cable car facilities are fully accessible to wheelchairs and strollers, including access to both stations, the cabin, and onsite restrooms. 

How to Get There
The lower station is located on Kralja Petra Krešimira IV. Travelers can leave Dubrovnik Old Town on foot through the Buža Street exit in the city walls and walk five minutes uphill. 

When to Get There
Operating hours vary depending on the month, and the cable car runs as soon as there are enough passengers. The last departure from the lower station is 30 minutes before closing time. Opt for an early evening ride to enjoy sunset views of the city and coastline. 

Fort Imperial
The 200-year-old fort on top of Mt. Srđ was built by Napoleon and finished on his birthday. The fort now houses the Homeland War Museum commemorating the 1991–95 Croatian War of Independence. Its ground floor has exhibits that chart the siege with the help of maps, graphic images, video testaments, and weaponry.
