Good to know

Best time to visit

Dubrovnik enjoys a Mediterranean climate, which means warm summers and mild winters. In autumn, between September and October, temperatures are not as oppressive as the summer months and the sea is still warm enough for a swim. For those reasons, fall represents the best time to visit Dubrovnik. In the summer months of July and August, Dubrovnik sees a lot of cruise ships, which quickly overwhelm the little city with tourists. This results in long queues at the top Dubrovnik attractions. Consequently, prices on just about everything also rise considerably, which means you need to dig a little deeper into your wallet. 

Getting around

There are no metros, trams, or trains in Dubrovnik. However, you can still easily get from one part of the city to another. Here are some popular options:

  • The best way to get around Dubrovnik is by bus. The bus system is reliable, cheap, and runs fairly often throughout the day. You can choose between a 24-hour pass and a one-hour ticket valid from the time you board the bus. 
  • Taxis are available and the taxi stands are located at convenient locations throughout the city. You can even hop on a water taxi, which is a lot of fun. Understandably, they are one of the more expensive modes of transport.
Dubrovnik stands as a very pedestrian-friendly city. And, Old Town is entirely free of cars, so you can enjoy a pleasant walk without worries about crossing traffic. 
Stay Safe

Dubrovnik is a very safe city.  However, it’s always better to be careful in a new place. Below are some safety tips which can come in handy:

  • When the tourist season begins, pick-pocketing and petty thefts are common. Most of these crimes are committed by foreigners who visit the city.Watch your belongings.
  • If an ATM looks a bit suspicious, grab the part of the machine that receives your card, jiggle it and pull. Card skimmers are known to be used on occasion to steal your bank card information. You might as well cover the number pad when punching in your PIN, too.
  • Don’t flash your cash around when making a purchase. You might just draw unwanted attention. Carry only the money you mean to spend, wear discreet jewellery in the busy streets, and keep your passport and money in separate places.
