The city wall of the port of Dubrovnik

Traffic Information

Car rental in Dubrovnik offers you convenience and flexibility on your travels. The traffic system in Croatia overall has greatly improved over the past decade due to extensive road building. As the nearest rail station to Dubrovnik is Split, it is worth knowing that the longest motorway in Croatia, the A1, travels from Split to Dubrovnik. Be careful to avoid the rush hours of Zagreb and Split between 7 and 8am and 3 to 4pm as the roads can become very congested. Other things to watch out for include being careful not to drive on the tram lines that run along some roads. It is also important to only use your horn in cases of immediate danger when driving in Croatia.

Be sure to have cash on you while driving in Croatia, as the Croatian police can use on the spot fines for all minor traffic violations including speeding. If you do not have cash with you when fined, you will be taken to a bank and if you still lack the funds to pay your vehicle can be impounded pending a payment. Parking is fairly simple in Croatia, as parking bays are marked by white lines and large white P sign on the kerb. Yellow dots mean parking is for disabled people only.

Petrolheads may be interested in taking time during their visit to drive the Adriatic Road (Jadranska magistrala), which connects Rijeka and Dubrovnik, and is famous for being the most pictusque road that Croatia has to offer. A useful tip to know before driving in Dubrovnik is that the Croatian Auto Club Emergency Service can be reached on the telephone number 987 for road assistance.

Dubrovnik's city wall and centuries-old houses

Sixt Tip

While with many other holiday locations, you must choose between a sun-seeker holiday or a cultural holiday, Dubrovnik offers both. History buffs will enjoy visiting the ancient fortifications and learning about Dubrovnik's intriguing heritage, while as the city has an average of 7.2 hours of sunshine each day, there are also plenty of opportunities for sun bathing and relaxing outside. For the best views of the city, beach and sea, take a trip on the bright orange Cablecar that journeys the sharp incline up over the Old Town to Mount Srd, giving you the ideal mix of great views and the important history of the area.

Sightseeing Destinations

No trip to Dubrovnik would be complete without a visit to the ancient city walls, which are some of the finest in the world and one of the hallmark attractions of the city. Standing at the top of the walls gives you picturesque views of the old town and glimmering Adriatic. There are several entrances to the walls from the Ploce Gate, Maritime Museum and the Pile Gate, with the last tending to be the busiest. If you enjoy a challenge take the Ploce side entrance to tackle the steepest climbs first. Please note that the city walls can be a strenuous walk, particularly in hot weather, and may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

Distance to the city walls

  • From Dubrovnik city centre: 1.4 miles, about 8 minutes
  • From Dubrovnik airport branch: 13.1 miles, about 31 minutes

Stradun is the main street in the city of Dubrovnik. This limestone-paved street is a pedestrian zone covering 300 metres of the Old Town, the historic core of the city that is surrounded by the city walls. Take a walk along the Stradun to enjoy the picturesque architecture. All houses lining the Stradun feature the same pattern of a ground level with a door entrance leading to a shop, and a window within a single frame beneath a semi-circular arch. The Stradun is something of a showcase for the city's main historical buildings, such as Onofrio's Fountain, a spectacular large fountain built in 1438 as part of the city's water supply system.

Distance to Stradun

  • From Dubrovnik city centre: 1.9 miles, 10 minutes
  • From Dubrvonik airport branch: 12.9 miles, about 29 minutes

There are several wonderful beaches in the Lapad area, a short drive from Dubrovnik city centre. Located on a peninsula, Lapad has the lovely Sumratin Bay (Uvala Lapad), well-equipped with a long boulevard with plenty of coffee and refreshment bars and beach restaurants. Further along this stretch you'll find a pebble beach and a concrete area for those who prefer to walk along the beachside without getting their feet sandy or walking over the pebbles.

Distance to Lapad

  • From Dubrovnik city centre: 1.4 miles, about 7 minutes
  • From Dubrovnik airport: 14.1 miles, about 32 minutes

Dubrovnik's Old Fort Lovrijenac

Business Destinations

As an exceptional medieval stone walled city, Dubrovnik is one of Europe's busiest MICE Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Events) destinations, bringing in business visitors from around the world. Few other cities have the option to spend corporate retreats talking business one day, then visiting ancient fortifications and relaxing at the beach the next. With no large purpose-built conference centres due to its relatively un-spoilt layout, most business events and conferences are held at hotels in Dubrovnik. These include the Radisson Blu Resort and Spa, which is an ideal corporate retreat venue giving delegates the opportunity to relax and unwind once business has been discussed.

Distance to Radisson Blu Resort and Spa

  • From Dubrovnik city centre: 9.3 miles, about 25 minutes
  • From Dubrovnik Airport branch: 20.5 miles, about 40 minutes
