bus at Lapad
Dubrovnik area has no trams or train service but does have an efficient local bus service - for example number 6 bus runs every 10-15 mins from early morning to midnight connecting the Lapad hotel region - also known as Babin Kuk - with the old city. Other routes are shown on the map found at the bus stops. Fares on the bus are 10 kunar but if you buy in advance form kisoks - most hotels will have them too then price is 8 kunars. (prices Oct 2005) Remember to validate your ticket in the machine as you get on the bus.
ferry in the new Harbour
Many cruise liners come into Dubrovnik and will dock at the Port of Dubrovnik in Gruz the new harbour area - near to the international bus station. One time we saw 4 big cruise liners coming in - Dubrovnik was busy that day! Also departing from here are the regular ferry services, supplied by Jadrolinija to the islands and other parts of the coast of Croatia and across to Italy.
Arrivals into Dubrovnik will normally be at the Dunbrovnik Airport a kew kilometres away from the resort of Cavtat. Its presently small and efficiently run. Our transfer time from getting off the plane to collecting our luggage and setting off on our coach transfer was only about 30 minutes - pretty good I thought! The airport is currently expanding its terminal (Oct 2005) to cope with the expected increase in tourism. We enjoyed a lovlely flight following the croatian coastline down all the way from Istrian region.
Tip: the cafes in the arrivals lounge and shops are slightly cheaper than the ones once you have passed passport control.
international bus station
Just past the port of Dubrovnik in Gruz is the international bus station, Kolvodor As well as buses for other european cities such as Frankfurdt and Trieste, services go to Mostar and Kotor as well as nearer croatian resorts such as Cavtat - number 10 bus for this.
