    To/From airport & Mostar / Kotor

    by littlebush Written Sep 13, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From the airport, it costs 35 kunar and took around 45mins

    To Mostar in B&H, it costs 104 kunar (Leaving at 1515, and another one left at 1700) - it took 3.5 hours. Have your passport to hand as the road leaves Croatia then comes back into Croatia before finally entering B&H so you have to go through the border 3 times. The bus is a similar price back from B&H,slightly cheaper, leaving at 12.30pm.

    To Kotor, the cost is 100 kunar, leaving at 1900 and taking 3.5 hours!

    A bus from the main bus station north of the old town to the old town costs 10 kunar.

    From the airport

    by bonio Written Jul 8, 2010

    The cheapest way into town from the airport is by bus. The company is called Atlas, buses leave from outside the terminal building, cost (6/2010) 35Kn. A stop in the old town and then on to the main bus station in Gruž, close to the harbour.
    Timetable for return trips displayed at the bus station.

    Hard to get Back to the Bridge

    by BruceDunning Written May 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Well, I had a map and thought I could easily find the way back to the bridge that accesses Dubrovnik. Not true. Because there is the main street being one way coming into the town, another is one way going out and back toward mainland. The problem is there was no; as in none, signs indicating where to turn and how to find the bridge access. After driving through a number of the suburbs, and asking 3 people, we finally got there, but it was an enormous hassle, and should have been avoidable, if only they posted signage. WE would around many times and knew the general direction to the bridge, but could not determine how to get to it very easy.

    Finally got under the bridge-no access though See it-but how to get on it? Going over bridge toward the town View of suburb town by bridge

    Police Speed Traps are ALL around

    by BruceDunning Written May 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    From Makarksa to Dubvrovnik there were no less than 6 speed traps, well hidden along E8 coastal highway. Also on the unfinished 40 mile stretch of road going through the mountains leading to Highway A1, there were about another 5 speed traps. Beware. They are serious in stopping speeders, but more to collect revenue.

    A1 Auto highway NOT complete to Ploce

    by BruceDunning Written May 24, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We took a venture when heading north from Dubrovnik, and got on A1 Highway. Nothing said it was not completed until you reach around Markarska; about 75 Kilometers north. Signage is poor and in talking to some locals, indication was that maybe some parts were now 4 lane highway. NOT. In fact what looked like a nice finished road at Ploce turned into detours and winding road up through the treacherous mountains. They climbed and twisted every direction. The views were great, though. Very little is online to indicate the A1 down that was completed or still working on it, so we took a chance.
    WE ended up going about 25MPH for 40+ miles til we got onto the real completed part of A1 on the way to Split. Same goes for unfinished highway south of Riejka for 100 kilometers where it becomes 4 lane at Senj, but you have to take E8 down as coast road, then climb 12 miles of winding/surpentine road to get to A1. The A1 from there is about 300 kilometers of autohighway

    Tip off highway not complete- 3 miles from Ploce Highway leads you to think it is done Sign indicating caution-slow

    Parking is a Mess

    by BruceDunning Updated May 23, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The parking can be a real deterent to wanting to visit the town. Finding a place can no doubt take 1-2 hours if you cruise around looking for the right place and cheaper end. On the street, if a place is found costs about 5 kuna, or $1 per hour. BUT-almost all of the areas on the street have a maximum limit of 2 hours; so then what do you do? A garage called Illina Glavica on Zagrebeca Ulica, about 3/4 mile away toward the land side east is said to be 15 kuna-$3 per hour, but I also heard the cost can be much more than that. Vehicles are wedged in everywhere a narrow/tight spot can be found. One area that may have some flexible parking is by the Pile gate entrance/Fort Lawrence strip. It is more open on an avenue, but you may have to drive down the street a while to find a place.
    For these reasons, we chose an apartment on the hillside to have a place to park the vehicle and easy walk into town, except the trade off is the 350 steps up, and then or course the same down. That was rigorous and I counted 1,500 steps one way while we were there, a treacherous feat for the out of shape, or bad legs.

    Taxi to Montenegro

    by ELear Updated Apr 23, 2010

    I can't remember exactly how much the taxi cost, but it wasn't exorbitant. (The driver was Nino Obraddovic - tel 385 91/480 - 5208.) The only hitch was that there was a long queue of cars and buses at the border, waiting to be checked by the Montenegro police. I was told that very often happened.

    NARROW STREETS/HEAVY USEAGE

    by travelgourmet Updated Feb 13, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The streets leading to the old town and fortress are filled with beautiful vistas and cars, motorbikes, and many backpackers walking the narrow roads.

    When driving a car, be careful around curves for the backpackers crossing the road and be on the lookout for the crazy driving of the motorbikes by the teenagers. You can enjoy the views by driving slower and with one eye on the road, ahead. Many tour buses are in this area and take up a lot of room, so give it to them.

    Catching a Bus

    Catching a Bus is easy enough in Dubrovnik. They travel all around close to most locations and for very little cost. Buy the tickets on the bus or for a cheaper price at many stores near the main stops.

    BA...

    by iaint Written Oct 24, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I used BA for my trip - breaking all my own rules. However, it was only £170 return from EDI via Gatwick and too good to miss.

    It went without a hitch, so well done BA. Their staff at Dubrovnik were remarkably friendly and helpful (like almost everyone I encountered on my trip).

    Transiting Gatwick is a bit of a bummer, but not as bad as Heathrow.

    traffic & parking

    by iaint Written Oct 24, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had a rented car and wished I didn't. The traffic was bad around the time I reached town (3-4pm) and it was a real pain when trying to find my lodgings - not helped by the one way systems, of course.

    Parking was also a nightmare. Eventually I saw someone vacate a "slot" on the pavement and I grabbed it. However, I was then perpetually fearful of it being towed away or clamped!

    Lokrum Ferry

    by pure1942 Updated Jun 16, 2009

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The ferry to Lokrum Island leaves from Dubrovnik’s Old Port, to the east of the Old Town. The ferry leaves regularly throughout the day and tickets can be bought from the pier. As far as I can recall a return ticket cost 35kuna and the enjoyable, scenic trip takes about 15 minutes each way.
    Visitors are not permitted to stay on the island overnight, so it is important that you catch the last boat back (in April 17.00 but late in the summer) or you will find yourself in trouble with the island warden!

    The bus in Dubrovnik

    by georeiser Written May 30, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The bus from Lapad/Babin Kuk goes between the Grad (Old city) every 20 minutes in the daytime. The trip takes 15 minutes and costs 2 USD. The bus is often crowded in the summertime, and there are not seats for all the passengers. It's a courtesy in Croatia to give away your seat to the older people.
