The thousand-year-old ‘Pearl of the Adriatic’ – the target of globetrotters


The fastest way to Dubrovnik is by air, with simple and fast connections from major European cities. If you travel by car, the impressive Pelješac Bridge will be a new option for an even shorter drive from mid-2022.


From your home

If you’re travelling to Dubrovnik from the north or northwest via Zagreb or Rijeka, the fastest way to get there is the A1 highway. The Zagreb-Dubrovnik section via the A1 highway and the Neum corridor is 600 km long, Split-Dubrovnik is 229 km, and Makarska-Dubrovnik is 153 km.

From mid-summer 2022, it will be possible to reach Dubrovnik via Pelješac Bridge, which will shorten the journey by approximately 40 minutes because there will be no waiting at the border crossings with neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina.

If you’re travelling from Central Europe via neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina, the fastest routes are via Sarajevo: Sarajevo-Mostar-Metković-Dubrovnik and Sarajevo-Foča-Trebinje-Dubrovnik.

For getting around the wider area of Dubrovnik, we recommend car rental and taxi services. Traffic is prohibited in the Old Town, so you can’t drive there, but there’s a public parking area and a public garage only a ten-minute walk from Stradun.


If you arrive by plane, Dubrovnik Airport (DBV) is only about 20 km from the city. At the airport, 30 minutes after each scheduled arrival flight, there is a bus to Pile station in Dubrovnik, and then to the main bus station. Likewise, buses depart from the bus station 1.5 hours before departing domestic flights or 2 hours before international departures.

You can buy a ticket at the main bus station or directly from the bus driver, or you can request a private transfer service.
