Hiring a scooter in dubrovnik?

by jodavies03

Hi,

we are going for a weekend break in dubrovnik and we are wondering if it is worth hiring a car or scooters for the weekend or use public transport. Is parking bad for scooters too?>

We are hoping to stay in a cheaper hostel outside the walled city and wish to see the coast / islands in this time.

Thanks in advance!

Well, you can take a ferry to the island of Lopud or take a taxi Boat along the Coast to Cavtat (you could also take a bus there) and within Dubrovnik they have good bus service so if you are only there for a weekend renting a car or scooter probably isn't worth it.

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

DUBROVNIK was founded in the...

by dcvitan

DUBROVNIK was founded in the 7th century A.D., and it is surrounded by the city walls, which are 2 km long and built in the period between 11th and 17th centuries. It is World Heritage listed and this, in itself, talks of its unique beauty and architectural splendour. The inhabitants of Dubrovnik were famous seamen and merchants. Dubrovnik's sailing vessels sailed all over the world. The period of Dubrovnik's greatest prosperity - known as the 'Golden age' of Dubrovnik - was in the 15th and 16th centuries. In 1667 Dubrovnik was devastated by the great earthquake after which, it could hardly recover. Dubrovnik was the seat of the Republic of Dubrovnik, which was abolished by Napoleon at the beginning of the 19th century.

Throughout its rich history Dubrovnik, with its beauty, attracted and fascinated many writers of travels, adventurers, curious people and all those lured by wonders and awe that miraculous beauty could bring.

The main street of Dubrovnik is called Stradun. Its beauty is unique, and it is the centre of the Old town and favourite meeting-place for the local people - a favourite promenade for the impressed tourist.

Dubrovnik with its 17 churches and monasteries and one of the oldest European synagogues proves its great religious and cultural heritage.

Many other cultural sights, crystal clear sea; hospitable people and culinary specialities of the region will make your stay in Dubrovnik truly unforgettable. For, in Dubrovnik, you will breathe the breath of unparalleled historical splendour and the breath of delightful hospitality.

Currency

by sandysmith

The Croatian currency is not the Euro (they they are not an EEC member yet ) it is the Kuna, which is divided into 100 lipas. "Kuna" means marten, a weasel-like animal, whose fur Croats used for payment many centuries ago and lipa is a lime tree.

So you want to hike to a Fort?

by lubyatoo

Well than the island Lopud is the place for you. Island Lopud is pretty close to Dubrovnik and you can take a ferry every day. Lopud is one of three Elfafiti Islands. Other two are Kalamota or Kolocep and Sipan.

The fort is pretty high up so try to get there in the morning and bring plenty of water. There are many signs showing which way to go. I wouldn't recommend hiking this place at night. The way up is not that great, make sure you have some good hiking boots or tennis shoes. Don't confuse the way up the Fort with the brisk walk around the city walls.

The Mljet National Park

by canaglic

This park blongs to the southern Adriatic group of islands. It is located within the administrative region of the city of Dubrovnik. The Mljet National Park takes in 3,100 hectares. Its confines include the zone of the Veliko and Malo jezero (or Large and Small Lake). Mljet has very largely managed to preserve its indigenous forests, which make it one of the greenest and most attractive islands of the Adriatic coast. Travellers can stay in a hotel on a little island in the middle of the Veliko jezero that is actually a refurbished abandoned monastery, and also in the Odisej (Odyssey) Hotel in the village of Pomena. Many private houses will also put travellers up.

A little bit of culture

by ivanab about Dubrovnik Summer Games

This is one of the most significant events in Croatia. During July and August Dubrovnik becomes a stage for artists all over the world. I was lucky 'cause this year my theatre had two preformances of Romeo& Juliet on the Boskovic square, with a beautiful church in the back of a stage. It is a special event for the preformers just as for the audience,so if you have a chance to go on at least one event don't miss it. A bit of elegancy could not be any harm.
