    Dubrovnik to Cavtat

    by IreneMcKay Updated Jun 12, 2015

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The number 10 bus goes from Gruz bus station to Cavtat. It cost 20 Kunas for a one way ticket. Buy your bus ticket from the bus driver; there is no need to stamp it in a machine. There are about 2 buses an hour.

    Boat to the hotel

    by solopes Updated Nov 29, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We were informed that we had a public boat connecting Dubrovnik to Plat (our hotel location) and Mljet, but we had no time (and no need) to use it.

    I felt sorry, because this could allow us the only angle of the beautiful town we didn't see: from the sea.

    A bus journey from Dubrovnik to Mostar

    by jonathanbarker Updated Nov 9, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I travelled with a friend by bus from Dubrovnik to Mostar by bus as there are no railways from Dubrovnik. I bought my ticket from the office in the bus station in Dubrovnik. The bus station is a short bus ride (Libertas services 1a & 1b) from Old Town. The departure time was 15.15, the bus company CRB and journey time about 4 hrs 30 mins. The bus followed the Adriatic coastline from Dubrovnik to a road junction north of Naum, and this was very scenic, our journey was when the sun was setting. Naum is the only port & coastal resort in the Federation of Bosnia & Herzegovina. passengers need to show their passports during the border crossings, and we had a short comfort break in outside a cafe in Neum. We finally left Croatia at Metkovic and entered the federation of BIH just before Capljina. We also assed the scenic town of Pocitelj but as it was late October, we arrived in to Herzegovina after dark.

    To & From Dubrovnik airport by bus

    by jonathanbarker Written Nov 8, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dubrovnik has a small airport (Cilipi) about 20 kms from the Old Town. However there is a shuttle bus which meets the arrival times of flights, and takes passengers to Pile Gate and the main bus station. Coaches are run by Atlas Agency, and the fare is 35 kuna, Tickets must be bought from the Atlas Agency office in the arrivals luonge. Journey time is approximately 40 minutes.
    For those catching a flight FROM Dubrovnik, the bus leaves a bus stop, on the main road, (but close to the entrance for the cable car ride). Exit the old town from the north (Buza Gate) and buy the ticket from the Atlas agency office, just outside this gate. The timings of the bus are approximately 2 hours before departure for international flights, and 1 hour 30 minutes for flights to other destinations in Croatia. Timings are irregular and buses only run to meet flights.

    Freedom to travel around Dubrovnik

    by jonathanbarker Written Nov 4, 2014

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dubrovnik has good transport links to its suburbs, the bus station and airport
    Local services are provided by Libertas. Libertas is the name of the Roman goddess of freedom, which is a good name of a bus company that gives locals and visitors the freedom to move in this city. I used the service to reach the city bus station. Buses 1a & 1b run about 4 times an hour on Mondays to Fridays, with frequencies less at weekends and bank holidays. The buses looked well maintained & clean. To travel the passenger needs to buy a ticket, preferably from a Tisak kiosk, as this saves money. A ticket for travel (up to 60 minutes) is only 15kuna.

    Taxi

    I came with a flight from Munich, then from the airport I took a taxi which costed about 35€.
    The taxi cannot enter the old town, so ask the driver to call your apartment owner and ask her/him at what gate he/she prefers to pick you up.

    Small Airport

    by jlanza29 Written Oct 15, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The airport in Dubrovnik is as small as small can get. it's simple and easy. just a couple of shops to buy last souvenirs and a couple of cafe's for coffee or a snack. There is only 5 gates .... and once you give you boarding card you board a bus that takes you to the airplane. There is no jetway's at this airport.

    Very simple, clean, and people friendly.

    local bus

    by jlanza29 Written Oct 15, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We had a rental car, but finding a parking space near the old city is like winning a lottery .. so we parked our car near a paid lot near the port and took the bus into the old town. It only took 5 minutes. Dubrovnik itself is very,very small ..... you can buy bus tickets at any of the TISAK newspaper stands and at some hotel's sell them also. The cost at the TISAK are 12 kuna's but if you buy them on the bus the cost goes up to 15 kuna's. The bus leaves you at the Pile gate and catching the return bus is just as easy. If it wasn't that our hotel was so far we would have used the bus even more than we did.

    As you enter the bus you validate your ticket at a machine next to the driver. Simple.

    From/To Dubrovnik by Bus/Coach

    by Airpunk Written Aug 31, 2013

    In Croatia, the coach has a larger share of the long-distance domestic travel market. This is expecially valid for Dubrovnik which does not have a train station at all. Dubrovnik's coach staion is located in Gruz, from there local buses run to the old town.
    Multiple daily to Zagreb, Zadar and Split as well as to nearby places such as Metkovic and Ploce. There are also international connections to Sarajevo, Kotor and Mostar – as well as some destinations far away like Frankfurt. Nearby Medjugorje is only served once daily. Ask at the info counter for schedule and fares or check the buscroatia website for schedule.

    Dubrovnik Buses

    by Airpunk Updated Aug 25, 2013

    The bus system is pretty easy to use: Buy a ticket, get into the bus and validate your ticket. The tickets can not be purchased in the bus, but at every newspaper shop and the ticket booth at Pile gate. There is no difference in fares for trips within Dubrovnik. The most useful route would be surely between Pile Gate and the bus terminal at Gruz Harbour. The first station serves the old town, the second the bus and ferry terminals. Line 1 (no matter which letter stands next to it) and 3 run between those two stops, line 8 runs from Pile Gate to Gruz Harbour only and takes a different way on the way back.
     
    A ticket costs 12 kuna (2013), ask for multi-travel passes if you stay for a longer period.

    From/To Dubrovnik by Plane

    by Airpunk Written Aug 20, 2013

    Dubrovnik's airport is located around 20 kms to the southeast of Dubrovnik's old town. The airport is served in the summer season by several airlines from/to dozens of European destinations, while there are far fewer flights in the winter.

    There is a bus operated by Atlas available which meets all scheduled flights upon arrival. The bus calls at Pile gate and at the main bus station close to Gruz harbour.
    On departure, the bus starts 90 minutes before every international flight and 75 minutes before every domestic flight from the main bus station. It does not call at Pile Gate but at a bus stop close to the funicular station to the north of the city centre (around 5 minutes after departure at main bus station).
    That said, the bus schedule depends on the flight schedule and the bus meets all scheduled (no charter) flights. The Atlas and airport websites are not of much use, but you can contact Atlas ( call.centre@atlas.hr ) or check the absolute Dubrovnik blog (check if they are up to date though) for the daily changing bus schedule. Price is 5 EUR or 35 Kuna per person and travel time around 35 minutes, all info as of June 2013.

    Taxis will cost you around 260 KN or 35 EUR (2013) and should be negotiated beforehand. If not included in your booking, prices for hotel pick-ups are similar.

    The bus service in Dubrovnik is quite user friendly. Buy tickets from a Tisak Kiosk. They cost 12 kunas each, 15 if you buy them on the bus. Tickets need to be stamped on the bus to validate them. We used 1A and 1B to go from Gruz to the old town and number 10 from Gruz to Cavtat. The Cavtat journey cost 20 kunas from the driver.

    We used an Atlas bus from the bus station in Gruz to go to Dubrovnik Airport. The ticket cost 35 Kunas (5 Euros). No payment for check in luggage. It took just over half an hour.We bought our ticket on the bus. If you use the Libertas bus instead you buy your ticket before boarding the bus. The Libertas bus cost 40 Kunas.

    The Atlas bus timetable changes every 2 days. Its timetable for 2 days is displayed at the bus station.

    Airport buses depart from stand 8.

    From Dubrovnik to Split

    by gilabrand Updated Jul 17, 2013

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ferry route (Jadrolinija) goes from Dubrovnik - Korcula - Hvar - Split and then the reverse in the other direction. The journey takes approximately 8.5 hours. The ferry operates twice weekly, on Thursdays and Sundays from Dubrovnik to Split and on Tuesdays and Saturdays from Split to Dubrovnik.

    Buses leave Split and Dubrovnik almost every hour with over 15 trips per day. The trip takes 4.5 to 5 hours, with sea views along the way.

    The route by car is the same as by bus, but without stops (although you should definitely stop at some of the quaint coastal villages along the way)

    Tip: No need to see all of them, as they are much alike.

    If you rent a car, be aware that rental companies charge an additional 1-way return fee for rentals in Dubrovnik with returns in Split (or vice-versa).

    Local Buses

    by antistar Updated May 28, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Local Buses are most useful for getting to and from the ferry terminal/bus station (number 7). But they are also useful if you are staying away from the old town, for example on the Lapad peninsula. You'll also want to get the hang of the local buses if you are staying out of town, for example at Cavtat (number 10).

    The local bus station is closer to the old town than the intercity station. It's about half way between them. You can just about walk there from the old town, but you'll be better off getting a bus. Any of them, except 4, will take you there.

    You can buy tickets on the bus, but it's cheaper to stock up at the many kiosks around the town.
