    Getting around Dubrovnik

    Travel tips

    Dubrovnik Old Town, the historical walled city, is pretty compact and pedestrian-friendly. You’ll find many landmarks and attractions – such as the Bokar Fortress, the Ethnographic Museum, and Sponza Palace – within walking distance of each other. The Old Town also hosts a great choice of dining, shopping and nightlife entertainment options.

    Dubrovnik is not a very big city as it covers only about 10 sq km. Driving in Dubrovnik is not recommended as the city has a complicated one-way system, parking places are scarce and expensive, and the traffic is chaotic, especially in summer. For getting around, it’s best to use the public and private transport services at hand.

    • A Daily Pass costs 30 kn and is valid for 24 hours. Do not forget to stamp it every time you start a ride.
