which route?

by iaint

I'm driving from Dubrovnik to Mostar in late October.

I had planned to drive up the coast via Neum amd then take the E73 inland.

However, viaMichelin recommends going via Trebinje and Gacko. Looks longer to me, plus the road from Gacko to Mostar is lower grade than the others.

I know the Neum route will involve 3 border crossings as opposed to 1 on the Gacko road, so maybe that's the explanation.

Any thoughts or experiences out there?

Re: which route?

I have done the same search (with the option "ViaMichelin recommends" selected) and the result I got is the route that you want to drive, via Neum and inland. It looks the fastest way and I would choose it, too.
The route via Trebinje and Gacko comes out if you select "shortes" as an option. This actually is the shortest way to get from Dubrovnik to Mostar, but not the quickest.

Re: which route?

by Mikebond

I meant "shortest". On the other hand, if you select "Quickest", you get the same result as with the "ViaMichelin recommends" option, i.e. the route you want to drive. So, I wouldn't hesitate anymore.

Iaint, the advice to go via Trebinje from "via Michelin" is good one, and ceternly Trebinje deservs at least half a day visit, as it is small nicely preserved Ottoman town.
But I actualy done the same trip different way, which might look long, but actualy it is faster:
Mostar E73
via Chapljina
to Metkovichi where you cross the border into CRO.
There the road is in exelent condition.
Than Kula Norinska,
Opuzen where you join E65 or Jadranska Magistrala which runs from the north to the south of the Adriatic.
Continue to:
Raba, Komarna,Duboka, Klak, than you cross again into Bosnia, (but you do not need passport control as you are staying on the highway to the south of CRO).
It is short ride trought B&H and you will rejoin E65 and Morotway 8, all the way to
Oreshac &

Hope this was of any help.

F**k the Bosnian roads. Go to Opuzen - Metkovic - Pocitelj - Mostar. Stop for an hour to visit Pocitelj it worths it.

Enjoy in cevapi in Mostar.

Travel Tips for Dubrovnik


by VictoriaM.

Traveling through Croatia, Dalmatia or Dubrovnik Region offers immense and rich experiences to every visitor. From the coastal to the continental parts, Croatia’s rich cultural heritage, combined with its magnificent natural beauties, make it the perfect place to spend your vacation at.

The total land area of Croatia amounts to 56.610 km.sq / 35.336 sq.mi., with a population of approximately 4.9 million. It features a total land border of 1.778 km (1.110 mi.) stretching from the historic city of Dubrovnik in the South to the ancient Roman city of Pula in the North, encompassing a 1.278 km (789 mi.) section of the Adriatic Sea. Spread like pearls along the coast, Croatia’s 1.185 islands provide a magical paradise to be experienced and explored.

The capitol of Croatia is Zagreb, a charming medieval city of exceptional beauty known for its spirit and architecture, with a population of approximately 1 million. Zagreb first appeared on Europe’s maps in 1994., when it became the center of its own bishopy. Over the years, Zagreb has become the scientific, political and economic center of Croatia.

The uniqueness of Croatia lies in its diversity. Situated between the Alps and the Adriatic Sea, Croatia provides visitors with the opportunity to ski in the winter and swim during the summer months, all within driving distance. With its 1.185 islands, islets and reefs, it is the most divorced coast on the Mediterranean.

To mention a few, Croatia is home to the Old City of Dubrovnik, Diocletians Palace in Split, Euphrasies Basilica in Poreè, the lakes Plitvièka Jezera and many others. Croatia boasts the largest number of developed settlements in southeast Europe, in addition, many of which date back to Roman and medieval times. Rarely can you find so many examples of cultural and historical significance from different periods in such a small region.


Dubrovnik's New Bridge

by sandysmith

Dubrovnik's new bridge was officially opened May 2002. It stands 51 m above the water, spanning a large cove north-west of the city of Dubrovnik. at the entrance to the New Harbour area of Gruz. Its one of the largest single-pylon, cable-stayed bridges (518m long) in Europe and took over 3 years to build. It crosses over the river Ombla and helps cut down the time needed to travel to Split by the Adriatic Highway. We had great views of it from the beach near our hotel. It was great to see the view from up there too on the way to and from a trip to Mostar - and especially to see the big cruise liners entering the harbour.

Ston-Mail Ston

by BruceDunning

WE did not stop there, and it was a distance from the highway, but it looked like an interesting place you could enjoy. Dubrovnik built a wall for defense of this area; about 40 kilometers north of the town back in 1333. It was to protect Dubrovnik salt deposits, which were valuable trade for them. It also was to keep out intruders from raids against the main town. It was the 2nd longest wall built in that time-behind the Great wall of course. Most people living around the area relied on the salt revenue, and Dubrovnik was a very large trader of goods in the central Europe continent. It had the 2nd largest fleet of ships back in 15th-16th centuries.

The Price...

by coceng

I paid 180 Kn for this excursion, quite reasonable.
There are a few excursion trips organized by other agencies, some only charge 150 Kn. So, you better ask around.
My trip started at 10 am but other agencies might depart at 9 am or 11 am.

Kolocep island is only 1.35 km2. It's a small one among the 3. You can actually just come to this island from Dubrovnik & stay for one whole day, lying in the sun etc.

Dubrovnik by night

by Jannick_L.

Dubrovnik by night is quit nice. Many buildings and the walls around the city are lighted.
It is also a good place to watch some people.
Especially for the man between us: it seems that Dubrovnik has the most beautiful girls in the world. I can only agree with that.
