Dubrovnik Cable Car

Get a Bird's Eye View of Dubrovnik Via the City's Cable Car
Our first two days in Dubrovnik, the sun hid among a thick cloak of clouds. Dodging a deluge of raindrops that's unusual for the city, we longed for the vibrant ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ of postcards.

On the day of our cable car ride up to Mount Srdj, 405 meters above sea level, things started to look up, with Dubrovnik transitioning from greyscale tones to Technicolor.

Our cable car lifted off, and within seconds, Dubrovnik looked more like a medieval Lego land than a formidable city, ringed by 2 kilometers of walls. In my peripheral vision, residential rooftops faded into scratchy green vegetation, and finally a rocky hillside. In less than three minutes, we had glided 778 meters from lower to upper station.

The views from the top of the platforms and Mount Srdj were incredible. We also visited the Homeland Museum, which is housed in a fort that was built by the French in the early 1800s.
