Petra Krešimira 4, Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, Croatia, 20000

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.

Nice tour mixture
This tour was really good. The Cable Car Ride gives you an ample view of the city, ocean and islands close to Dubrovnik. Our tour guide, Elvis, was excellent. Very knowledgeable and experienced. This was a very nice tour to get to know Dubrovnik more intensively.

Dubrovnik Buggy Safari and Cable Car Ride
What a fantastic experience we had. Such a fun way to see the spectacular views over Dubrovnik and also hear all about the history. Our guide was really friendly and very informative. The biggest ride off road in the mountains was fab and me and my husband really enjoyed it and can’t wait to do it again but this time with our teenage sons. Thanks so much.

Plan your wall walk

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
Guide did a fabulous job. Wish she included the wall in her tour. Perhaps not how the tour was designed. But after 3 hours we were too tired to then walk the wall on our own. As we came back to the wall in the evening, we were told we can go in till 7pm. But the guards started asking people to leave within 28 mins. So much of the wall was missed from the experience.

Miro was an excellent guide and historian. I only completed the cable car and old city portions of the tour with him. The City Walls were not-to-be-missed but I had enjoyed that 2 hour walk on the previous day.

Dubrovnik Super Saver: Mt Srd Cable Car Ride plus Old Town and City Walls Walking Tour
The tour was great. I booked a 9 am meeting time outside of Old Town, but our ship did not end up docking until 9 am. We got to the meeting place 10 minutes late and they tour already left for the cable car. Another tour company guide, got in touch with the tour company and we were able to catch up with them just before they boarded the cable car. The tour was wonderful as was the guide.

Dubrovnik Shore Excursion: Explore Dubrovnik by Cable Car
What a perfect 3 hour tour. Our local guide was fantastic (I’m so sorry I’ve forgotten her name). Wonderful history and walking tour of Old Town Dubrovnik, which exceeded our expectations. Due to weather the cable car wasn’t working however our guide did not miss a beat and gave us an incredible view with local perspective. Thank you so much.
