Bus Fare and Spot for Lunch

by collegeprof

We are some of those cruisers who ask "What to do in 5 hours in Dubrovnik?" This site has many suggestions and answers to that question, but I do have 2 others:
1. Will we be able to pay for the tram or bus in euros? If not, is there an ATM where we can get the local currency?

2. Would someone be kind enough to recommend a non-touristy cafe for us?

Thanks so much, Marilyn

Don't hold your hopes up for a cafe or restaurant in Dubrovnik that's non-touristy! Assuming you're going to spend your time there in the old city, and with only 5 hours, you won't have time to do much else - if food is being served, there'll be tourists there somewhere. I'd walk pretty well right down Placa and then take one of the little streets that go up the hill to the next street over where there are several small restaurants but, given how busy it can be in the centre - it may be more of a case of where you can find a seat than anything else.

You won't be able to pay a bus fare in euros, you'll need kunar, but you should be able to change money on the cruise ship surely. Otherwise, you'll find there are banks and ATMs close to where you dock.

i was told by a slovenian friend that Dubrovnik is one of the few places in the world that won't allow McDonalds to open a cafe - so you won't see any golden arches

Sarajevo is one of only two capital cities in the the world with no McDonald's...Nice bit of useless trivia for ye :)
But with Bosnia & Herzegovina's delicious local cuisine it's no surprise.
BTW Pyongyang is the other!!!!

Speaking of Bosnia cuisine, there's a lovely restaurant in Dubrovnik which serves great cevapcici, burek and Bosnian coffee. It's called the Taj Mahal (and no it actually isn't an Indian) and it's just off Placa on Svetog Dominika. Good value too (considering where you are!!!!)
All the best

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Dubrovnik

by croisbeauty

Dubrovnik is situated in the southernmost part of the Republic of Croatia. It is rich in cultural and historical monumenta and is included in UNESCO World Heritage List. Nature lovers can find here a true Mediterranean landscape, sailors will find marinas and blue sea, it has also excellent sports and recreational facilities and air, sea and road links with the rest of Europe and the world. The city of Dubrovnik is the most southerly Croatian town. Its climate is Mediterranean with average yearly temperature of 17C degrees, characterized by very mild winters and very dry, sunny summer. The average temperature is about 10C in winter, and about 26C degrees in the summer.

Locals are very friendly

We stayed in a villa close to Dubrovnik, and had a wild party one night. Next morning neighbours complained about the noise.

So we went and apologized for all the inconveniences. We ended up chatting and were actually offered some homemade booze and everything else. Next night we could party as long as we wished...

So - be nice to your neighbours and they'll be nice to you.

Day trip to Montenegro

by mikelisaanna

Dubrovnik is near the border with Montenegro, which makes for an interesting day trip. You can cross into Montenegro and do a drive around the Boka Kotorska (Bay of Kotor) which offers stunning natural scenery as it is a fjord surrounded by mountains. On the shore of the Boka Kotorska is the historic town of Kotor, which is a smaller version (about 1/4 the size) of Dubrovnik with about 2% as many tourists.

If you do go to Montenegro, remember to bring your passport. Americans and EU citizens only need a passport (no Visa) to enter Montenegro.

Over the border

by TheWanderingCamel

A 300km round trip from Dubrovnik will take you into Bosnia-Herzegovina for a chance to visit the city that perhaps symbolizes all the heartache of the wars that followed the breakup of the old Yugoslavia. Who can forget the way the world watched as the famous old bridge at Mostar held out for so long - and ultimately fell.

The bridge has been reconstructed and Mostar is slowly rebuilding itself. There's much more evidence here of the war in terms of damaged buildings and overgrown bomb sites (warnings too, to stay away from uncleared sites) than in Croatia but the town's setting above the Neretva River is beautiful. Mellow old stone buildings and green trees line the high river banks. The approaches to the bridge on both sides take you through the twisting narrow streets of the old town. The small shops of souvenirs on both sides of the bridge have a distinct feel of the souk about them - though now the small shops are mostly just more of the same tourist stuff. A short walk along from the Kujundziluk will bring you to the Koskin-Mehmed Pasha mosque, now, like so much of this area, restored looking as it has done for centuries.

The road to Mostar will take you past Pocitelj, where the old stone houses, domes and the tall minaret of its mosque are overlooked by the ruined Sahat-kula fortress. It is a picture book scene - which makes it all the more poignant when you learn that this village saw one of the last acts of brutal ethnic cleansing and destruction of the war here. The last few years have seen the restoration of the village's Hadzi Alija mosque which has stood here since 1562, the medressa of similar age and one of its beautiful old Ottoman houses - all of which are open to visitors.

Public transport isn't an option for this trip. You'll need to drive yourself (hire cars can be taken into Bosnia without extra formalities) or take a tour. You can book a day tour with Atlas Tours in Dubrovnik.

Night club #1 in Dubrovnik

by kiona about Fuego

Fuego is definitely the best nightclub in Dubrovnik. It's also the busiest one. In the summertime its open every night, during the rest of the year it operates on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Fuego organizes student nights on Thursdays (from Sept - May), Concerts on Fridays / Saturdays during the entire year, as well as many other interesting events (Carnival, dancers...)....
Anyway, if you fancy clubbing in Dubrovnik, make sure to go to Fuego. Did I mention very good prices,(40 kn entrance; €5,7 & you get a free drink - ANY drink), friendly staff, and good music? Dont be confused with the name "LATINO club Fuego" - they play all kinds of music (techno, rnb, hip-hop,rock...)!
They also have special offers, so make sure to check it out. None
