Dubrovnik to Mostar and Montenegro in the wintertime?

by grlmopz

Hello there,

I'll be visiting Dubrovnik in early January (not the best time, I know!) and wondered if there's an easy way to visit Mostar and Montenegro at that time. I checked the website of Atlas tours, but they stop taking people back and forth in the early Fall.

Thanks very much for your help.

It's quite easy to visit Mostar or Kotor using regular buses. However public transport schedules normally don't allow for a daytrip, so you'd probably have to stay overnight.

Hello
Alan is correct but there is still a way to visit Mostar on a day trip, if you don'tm ind paying some extra money (btw it's worth it).

1. At the Dubrovnik bus station, find out the name of the Croatian bus station nearest to the BIH border and have them tell you at what time is their last bus. I don't rmember what the station was called - but the bus was at 5-something PM last time I was there.

2. Catch the regular bus to Mostar and once in the old town, past the bridge on the right, you'll find a travel agency. Have them book a taxi for you to the Croatian station. I think we paid 35 euros. Allow for some extra time in case there's traffic at the border.

3. From the Croatian station, take the bus into Dubrovnik. It should arrive into town at about 8 PM. So Mostar in one day is quite possible. You don't need a guided tour.

Montenegro: I think that there are a few buses a day, so you shouldn't have trouble making your way there. Kotor is about 2 hours and a half from Dubrovnik, Budva about 3 hours.

Enjoy the Balcans.

You can also make a private tour to Mostar with a driver-guide. There are some companies in Dubrovnik that make those excursions whole year. You can contact one of them on e-mail nikolina_musladin@yahoo.com

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik

Seismically reinforced

by karenincalifornia

While most of Dubrovnik was heavily damaged in the disastrous earthquake of 1667, the city walls that were built around the 15th century survived. They are up to 25 meters high, 1 to 6 meters thick and include towers, corner fortifications, bastions and one large fortress.

Over time the walls were reinforced. The massive walls of Dubrovnik in the past were partly responsible for Dubrovnik's relative autonomy, and today remain an impressive show of strength.

A little bit of...

by ana.gsm

A little bit of history...:
The Croatian name of the town is derived from the word dubrava, while the Latin name Ragusa - Rausa originated from the name of the island where the first settlement was established (Lave, Lausa). Dubrovnik was probably founded in the first half of the 7th century, upon the fall of the nearby Epidaurum (today's Cavtat) during the Avaro-Slavic invasion on Dalmatia. Opposite of that location, at the foot of Srdj Mount, developed a Croatian settlement under the name of Dubrovnik, after which, in the course of time, the entire town was named. The spatial separation was created by leveling and filling up of the present Placa, where the core of an integrated town developed. From its establishment the town was under the protection of the Byzantine Empire (for a certain period, the Byzantine strategist also resided here); during the Crusades it came under the sovereignty of Venice (1205-1358), and by the Peace Treaty of Zadar in 1358 it became part of the Hungarian-Croatian Kingdom. Having been granted the entire self-government (bound to pay only a tribute to the king and providing assistance with its fleet), from that moment Dubrovnik started its life as a free state that reached its peak in the 15th and the 16th centuries. A crisis of Mediterranean shipping and especially a catastrophic earthquake in 1667 put Dubrovnik in a very difficult economic position. In such a situation Dubrovnik saw the beginning of the Napoleonic wars. The French entered Dubrovnik in 1806; in 1808 Marshal Marmont abolished the Dubrovnik Republic (the name was in use from the 15th c.). Pursuant to the resolutions of the Vienna Congress in 1815, Dubrovnik was annexed to Austria
During the period of independence of Dubrovnik, the state administration was in hands of the aristocracy; the administrative bodies were the Upper Council and the Lower Council (from 1238) and the Senate (from 1253). The head of the state was the Duke, elected for a term of office of one month. In the 13th century Dubrovnik gained the island of Lastovo, and in the 14th century also Ston, the Peljesac Peninsula and the island of Mljet. In the course of several centuries Dubrovnik grew into the most powerful economic center on the eastern coast of the Adriatic, trading both in the Orient and the Occident, developing a powerful fleet of merchant and war ships (shipyards in Gruz, Lopud and in Sudjuradj on Sipan; an institution for marine insurance from the second half of the 14th c.) and maintaining diplomatic relations with a number of countries and cities. Dubrovnik had its Statute as early as 1272, which, among others, codified the town-planning and hygienic regulations (organization of quarantines). Medical service was introduced in 1301; the first pharmacy was opened in 1317. The old people's home was opened in 1347; the first quarantine hospital ('lazaret') was organized in 1377; the Supreme Medical Council was established in 1424; in 1432 the orphanage was opened; the waterworks was constructed in 1436.
Dubrovnik was an outstanding literary center in the Renaissance (M. Drzic, I. Gundulic); the center of the local painting school in the 15th-16th century; the birth-place of several world-famous scientists, such as the physicists Marin Getaldic (1568-1626) and Ruder Boskovic (1717-1787), the economic theoretician Benedikt Kotruljic (1400-1468), the composers Luksa Sorkocevic (1734-1789) and Ivan Mane Jarnovic (1740 or 1745-1804) and other. Dubrovnik was the cradle of humanism and Latinism on the Croatian coast of the Adriatic.
Science and culture in the town were promoted by scientific and literary societies - academies: the Academy of the Unanimous (second half of the 16th c.), the Academy of the Frivolous (founded around 1690) and other. Dubrovnik has maintained its important position in the Croatian culture until today.

PATROL STREETS

by DPando

Next morning we went to visit the citadel..2km southwards from the YH...we get a first impression last night and it looks really nice, but by day it was full of people gathered in the main entrance and once time inside it was a crowd everywhere with the exception of top streets empty of them

Besides i guess its good to know for future travellers , you can go around for the perymeter and see the sights and outskirts but paying an interesting amount of money... i demmed overly expensive, but im sure that should be really beautifull

Island Palagruza

by canaglic

The archipelago of Palagruza is the most distant group of Croatian islands, and the little islet of Galijula from that group marks the southernmost point of Croatian territory. Palagruza differs from any other island by its large range of natural characteristics. It is characterized by an extremely dry climate with a very small amount of precipitation. A specific type of vegetation has developed because of such climate and great influence of sea and salt. Besides endemic plants, there are also different endemic animals. To make up for the lack of precipitation all these animals and plants abundantly use the moisture produced by dew which is greatly present on Palagruza, as well as some other specific adaptations.

Stradun

by croisbeauty about Stradun by night

The Main Street of the old core of the town is called Stradun or Placa. It is non traffic area, aswell as the rest of the old historical centre of the town. Many of those who have visited the town agreed, this is one of the most beautiful streets in the whole world.
