Would like to know what currency (euro or croatian kuna) is preferred in the area?
Also recommendations for a couple of day trips out. We are staying in Cavtat 20th September for a week and will visit Dubrovnik a couple of times I think. But would also like a couple of day excursions too.
How often do the buses run between Cavtat and Dunbrovnik?
thanks for any help
Since you are living in Croatia you ar expected to pay your bill when purchasing a service or goods in local currency which is Kuna. But, the city is also used to tourists so you may find out to pay also with euro which is the common currency used my most of the touristic places as hotels and restaurants and some shops as well. Of course you do not get the best rate, consider it.
Bus number 10 runs between Dubrovnik and Cavtat, you can see the timetable here (typically there are 2 per hour):
Travel Tips for Dubrovnik
Me & Alen...
The photo shows me & Alen having our drinks at a table in the Old Town of Dubrovnik.
People watching, enjoying the sights in the Old Town. So lively !
This is what I love most about Dubrovnik. Inside this Old Wall, people were enjoying themself & trendy young guys & girls parading themself, with their flashy clothes & mobile phones.
It's a sight that we could see in much much bigger cities !
Last year on July I rented a car (TOYOTA AURIS) from AVIS 300€ one week.
I rented it from turkish AVIS web site.you can use the car in bosnia and hercegovina too.Service was excellent.It s really nice to drive in Croatia.
I have checked local car rentals in Zagreb airport they gave me little cheap prices but I choosed AVIS.Cause ýt s every where in the world.
www.viamichelin.com is very helpful for finding the route.
My route was ZAGREB-BOSANSKA GRADISKA-BANJA LUKA-ZENICA-TRAVNIK-SARAJEVO-MOSTAR-DUBROVIK-SPLIT-ZAGREB.It took one week. 1 night BANJA LUKA 2 nights SARAJEVO 3 nights DUBROVNIK 1 night ZAGREB.
Dubrovnik is very nice resort town.I suggest you to hire a flat with kitchen
and bathroom.like a home.check my tips.
Also I recommend to you stay in small towns around the Dubrovnik.Like CAVTAT,ZAton,zatoN mALI more quite and cheaper.if you hire a car it s easy to arrive to Dubrovnik.
Cavtat is very nice town for dining and spending day.
Not many visitors spend much time around the newer Gruz and harbour area of Dubrovnik but as we were staying nearby during our stay in Dubrovnik, we did get to have a quick look around. There is not much in the way of stunning architecture to draw visitors to the area, but it is a nice place to soak up modern Dubrovnik’s everday life. The modern harbour took over from the Old Town’s port as the centre of shipping and commercial export/import trading and is largely industrial in parts. However, the eastern end of the harbour is filled with smaller pleasure craft and even reconstruction or two of Old Wooden Galleys. You can catch boats and ferries from Gruz Harbour up the coast of Croatia to Korcula, Rijeka, Zadar, Split, Mljet and even across to Bari in Italy. Trips around the Elaphiti Islands can also be booked from Gruz. Gruz is a busy, commercial area, giving a glimpse into the everyday goings on of Dubrovnik with a pleasantly surprising promenade walk.
BTW – The main bus station (Autobusna Stanica) is located in Kantafig just north-west of Gruz and the area of Lapad is just to the west, where a lot of accommodation is available and Dubrovnik’s best beaches are located.
Take bus 1 and 3 all run from Pile to the Bus Station passing the Harbour. Buses 2, 6 or 4 also pass the harbour on the way to Lapad.
Day trip to Montenegro
My second Atlas tour was a very long, but very interesting day travelling to and through Montenegro. Leaving at 7 am, the bus ventured south, along gorgeous coastline, through passport control, heading inland at the Bay of Kotor. We stopped several times to take photos and then had some time to wander around and visit the old walled city of Kotor.
Getting back on the bus we headed up, up, up, dozens of hair raising switchbacks into the mountains of Montenegro (ergo: Black mountain). From above the views were superb and we had to stop several times for goats, cows and sheep! This is where the skills of the Atlas driver was most evident and several times he earned the applause of the guests.
Inland we stopped for lunch, fresh dalmatian ham and home made cheese sandwiches along with a local wine ($3.00!) at a small village restaurant. Then we proceeded to the capital where we enjoyed a tour of the original home of Nicolas I.
A final stop at a coastal, resort town with another old walled city and an opportunity to enjoy a much needed gelato before heading back along the coast north, returning to Dubrovnik at 7 pm.
Dubrovnik by night
I wouldn't say that Dubrovnik is a partytown.
There aren't many nightclubs and discos and those that exist are pretty boring.
However there are many nice bars and restaurants in the old part of Dubrovnik which get very crowded in the evenings, even in the middle of the week. Very nice atmosphere.
A disadvantage is that most bars close fairly early, after midnight the city is almost empty.
