Mount Srd cable car
Mount Srd cable car Dubrovnik Reviews
Worth it for views alone Nov 20, 2011
For a nice bird’s eye view of Dubrovnik, a trip to the top of Mount Srd is the way to go, and very well worth the time.
There are 3 ways to get there. One is by car, second by foot, and third by cable car. This review will be mainly about cable car. I chose this option, because it was faster, a less tiring, and less hassle than the other 2 options.
With the station located outside of Old Town, you will have to exit through the City Wall, and look for it, alongside a street. The cable car was built in 1969, but destroyed in the 1991 bombings. Having only recently reopened in 2010, the cable car takes people to the top, for a panoramic view of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea, along with the view of the surrounding mountains.
In addition to nice views of the town, there is also a gift shop and a café at the top as well. Also, there is a huge cross, and a fortress that was built by Napoleon, which now houses a museum called the Dubrovnik During the Homeland War. More about that in a separate review.
