Arrival by air
Traveling by plane is a convenient and comfortable way to visit Dubrovnik. Many European companies have direct flights to Dubrovnik or to Zagreb from where the Croatian national carrier, Croatian Airlines, provides regular flights to Dubrovnik. During summer season there are numerous charter flights operating from many European cities. The airport is called Cilipi airport and it is located about 18 km from the Dubrovnik city center and only 6 km from Cavtat and Hotel Croatia.
Arrival by car
Traveling by car is a great way to visit Dubrovnik, because it gives you the freedom to explore Croatian Adriatic Coast on the way to Dubrovnik and Dubrovnik Region as well. There are numerous places and towns to be seen and a variety of things to be done.
For travel from northwest (Slovenia, Austria, and Hungary) the fastest way is to take A1 highway from Zagreb to Split (370 km) and from Split to Dubrovnik (210 km) by Adriatic coast road. On your way you may stop to visit Plitvice lakes national park, waterfalls at Skradin near Šibenik, or visit Split, the largest town at Croatian coast with the Roman emperor Diocletian palace and many more.
From the west (Slovenia and Italy), A1 highway can be reached from A6 highway after Rijeka. You can also travel to Dubrovnik by the spectacular but rather long road along the coastline.
Arrival by sea
Another pleasant way of traveling to Dubrovnik is by sea. There are international and coastal ferry lines with arrivals and departures in Dubrovnik.
Jadrolinija is the main Croatian ferry company, with the highest number of regular international and domestic lines. Other agencies operate along the Croatian coast during summer. From Italian Adriatic coast there are regular ferry lines between Ancona and Zadar or Split and from Bari to Dubrovnik.
Arrival by coach
Coaches are often used by Croatian citizens. There are a large number of regular lines between main Croatian cities. There are many coach connections during a day or night between Zagreb and Dubrovnik. Travel time is about 10 hours and the price is aprox. 230 kn (30 Eu).
Arrival by train
The closest railway station to Dubrovnik is in Split. A train arrives to the Split railway station which is located in the harbor and close to the coach station where you can take a coach to Dubrovnik which is 200 km away.
