    Boattrip to Mljet

    by Jannick_L. Updated Jan 8, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Getting on your own to the beautiful island of Mljet is not difficult from Dubrovnik. But pay attention.
    You can not take the boat in the harbour of the old town of Dubrovnik. You have to take the boat in the harbour of Lapad. The trip takes about 1.5 hours, it is not expensive and it is really worth doing this.
    Only one boat a day goes to Mljet and more important if you want to get back in Dubrovnik: ONLY ONE BOAT GOES BACK. So be in time !! Going there with a local agency is much more expensive then on your own (as usual !)

    Getting into Dubrovnik from Italy or Croatia

    by Venturingnow Written Oct 26, 2002

    If you take public transport, you have to ways to get into Dubrovnik. It is both possible to take a ship from Italy and Greece, as well as taking a bus from any big city in Croatia. Dubrovnik lies at the extreme southern tip of Croatia and is a ways from Slovenia. Trains run as far south as Split, so from there, you're on a bus, but they're cheap and comfortable. The ferry I took from Italy lasted about 10 hours, and was on the nation's national carrier, Jadrolinija, and they have a website at www.jadrolinija.hr. It cost me 35 euros to go from Bari, Italy to Dubrovnik in deck class. I purchased my ticket in Rome. They also run ferries from other cities to other destinations.

    Do not consider any option other than ferry. If entering Croatia by air, fly into Zagreb and take a couple of days to travel by coach to Rijeka or Split (Split is almost as breathtaking as Dubrovnik) and take the ferry (the ferry company is Jadrolinija) down the coast. The views along the way are stunning as you hop between islands.
    On foot. Local buses, if staying in Lapad, are good and regular (but packed and boiling hot in the summer) during the day but services can be rather specious at night. I recommend taxis after 1PM.

    I took the plane (croatia airlines). Then take the Atlas bus (it's airco) and fast no stops till the Pile gate. This bus costs 25 Kuna or 3,50 Euro.


    In the old city: just walk
    Around the city: take the bus from the bus station at the pile gate.

    DUBROVNIK - you can get there with plane, boat (cruise or regural line from Italy or Croatian ports), bus, car, bike, etc.
    DUBROVNIK - there're many regural bus lines through Dubrovnik and outside of the town (to Cavtat, Mlini, Slano, Ston, Korcula (via Orebic) etc. There're many cheap regural boat lines to Lokrum, Kolocep, Lopud, Sipan & Mljet island.
    You can also rent a car almost everywhere (not so cheap).

    by pandrews Written Aug 25, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Jardolina ferry line is by far and a way the best way to arrive and leave the city. They generally operate daily in the summer with the exception of sundays to Bari. The same line operates all along the Croatian Coast. It is pretty cheap as ferries go. Though some guide books will tell you to purchase the total trip from Dubrovnik to Rijeka And tell of the great ease of stepping of at each port along the way. Don't buy it unless you speak fluent Croatian. It's not that easy. Simply buy tickets from port to port. It's not that much more expensive and gives you much more freedom.

    by dubrovnik Written Aug 24, 2002

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is now perfectly safe to visit Dubrovnik by air, boat or car. It is the most south-easterly city in Croatia, and the most practical way to reach the city is to do so by air. The airport is functioning only 14 miles away. There are daily flights from Zagreb, and weekly flights from several other European cities. The boat connections are frequent from Venice, Trieste, Ancona, Piraeus and Rijeka; the most pleasant journey to the city is probably by ferry from Rijeka, which stops at many islands and ports along the way, and takes about 17 hours. The coastal road from Trieste is also there. Dubrovnik can also be reached by bus from Zagreb, which takes about 12 hours. Once in a compact city, you simply walk, just as you do in Venice. Dubrovnik was once known as Ragusa, or the Republic of St. Blaise, and it was important medieval trading center and important port that competed vigorously with Venetian and Genoese rivals. Here's a photo of Dubrovnik's old port.

    by Kamen_mali Updated Aug 24, 2002

    1 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can come to CAVTAT by plane (airport is 2 km away from Cavtat, so all the info about flights from Zagreb, or via major European cities, ask in 'Croatia Airlines' or at http://www.ctn.tel.hr/ctn), by car, by bus from Dubrovnik (bus no. 10) or by boat (till Dubrovnik, then by other ways of transportation to Cavtat)!
    When in CAVTAT, you don't need a car. Everything is only minutes away + it is a good and relaxing thing to enjoy a walk around Cavtat.
    If you want to go to Dubrovnik (or an area around Cavtat), go by bus (the timetables are available at first/last bus station), by boat, or you could rent a car or a scooter (info. at local tourist offices/agencies).

    Taxies are not cheap but not too expensive either, we only used taxi once when leaving back to the airport and the trip cost us about 20 euro which is not that bad.
