Fodor's Expert Review Dubrovnik Cable Car
Reopened in July 2010 after being destroyed in the siege of Dubrovnik, the ultramodern cable car whisks you up Mt. Srđ for the best view of the city and the islands. At the top, you can join an hour-long buggy tour of the area, go for a hike, or have a cocktail at the smart Panorama Restaurant. The Imperial Fort, built between 1806 and 1812 by Napoléon during his short rule of the city, now hosts the Homeland War Museum, where you can learn about the siege. To reach the cable car from the Old Town, go up the stairs from the Stradun (toward the mountain) and exit via the Buža Gate; tickets can be purchased at the station. Plan your visit for sunset, when the views are magnificent, and the line is shorter.
