Dubrovnik


Dubrovnik is a city rich with culture and history so it is listed in UNESCO World Heritage List. The old city was built in the 13th century and remains almost untouched to the present day. There are two main portals to the old town, Pile and Ploce, both leading to the Stradun, the Dubrovnik’s main boulevard. Tall walls surround Dubrovnik Old Town. Many visitors enjoy people-watching whilst sipping coffee in one of the numerous cosy cafes on the Stradun. The city has a rich cultural life that includes theatre, several cinemas as well as Dubrovnik Film Festival and Dubrovnik Summer Festival, held every year in July and August.

Dubrovnik Cable Car

Srd, the hill overlooking  Dubrovnik is reclaiming its status as a tourist attraction –  The cable car (popular ” žicara”) that once linked Srd hill to the town, and destroyed in the 1991 bombardment of Dubrovnik, will be reestablished this summer. Once work is completed it will be easier for visitors to enjoy the panoramic views over the city and archipelago. The cable car will have two cabins, with a capacity of  30 passengers, and will reach the top of Srd Hill (a distance of 778 meters) in about 3 minutes. The plateau on Srd Hill, located at 405 meters above sea level, will have two terraces, with telescopes and panoramic views, a snack bar, panoramic restaurant, a souvenir shop and amphitheatre for 250 persons.

Dubrovnik Cable Car was built back in 1969 and was used by more than 2,5 million visitors who wanted to enjoy the panoramic views of the Dubrovnik Old Town and the Adriatic Sea.  Back in the early 19th century, the neighbouring tower ‘Imperial’ was strategically built on this spot. The newly rebuilt Dubrovnik Cable Car will start operating in the summer of 2010 – visit their homepage here
