Dubrovnik’s New Cable Car Up Mount Srd

Dubrovnik’s New Cable Car Up Mount Srd

1 June 2010 is the opening date for a new cable car up Mount Srd, which towers behind the medieval walled city of Dubrovnik, Croatia.

Two carriages, carrying 30 passengers each, make the ascent in just three minutes. The upper station is 405 metres above sea-level and offers incredible views over the city and beyond. On clear days the visibility from Mount Srđ is around 60 kilometres. There are telescopes on a viewing platform plus a bar, restaurant, 250-seat amphitheatre and shop.

The new cable car replaces a cable car that ran the same route from 1969 to the 1990s, and carried 2.5 million passengers each year.

A winding walk known as ‘The Serpentine’ also climbs the sage-covered hillside where sheep graze; the views at the top are the reward.
