Dubrovnik Quick Tips

When you pick where to stay in Dubrovnik, ask yourself what kind of holiday you’d like to have. Mostly relaxed by the sea or mostly sightseeing the historic center?

You can always mix and match your activities. If you stay near a beach, it only takes a quick bus ride to reach the Old Town’s buzz. Walking is a great option too as you can reach almost anywhere in about 30 minutes.

  • Dubrovnik’s orange buses are a great way to get around the city. Tickets are sold at any news kiosk and need to be validated on a small machine on a bus. A single ride costs 12 KN.
  • You can save money on city transport and sightseeing with a . There are 1, 3 and 7 Day options which include a bus pass, entry fees to various attractions and discounts to restaurants and gift shops! Get it online for additional 10% off, in which case a 1 Day Card costs 171 KN.
  • Uber is also available in Dubrovnik and is cheaper than the local taxi service.
  • If you arrive to Dubrovnik by car, you need to consider the parking options. For example, there is no car access inside the Old Town, and even outside the City Walls, parking can be scarce. Elsewhere it gets easier. Check this before your arrival.
  • Check out some great rental car discounts here.
  • Dubrovnik Cilipi Airport is about 30 minutes drive from the center. You can take a regular airport shuttle bus to the main bus station in Dubrovnik’s Gruž neighborhood. A return ticket is 70 KN. One-way Uber ride costs about 180 KN.

Plan Your Dubrovnik Trip

Croatia is part of the EU but we don’t use Euro. Croatian money is called Kuna, abbreviated locally to KN, and internationally to HRK. So $1USD=6.28HRK.

You can use the for up to date conversions.

If you’d like to know more about the history and the look of Kuna, read my post about .

The busiest time in Dubrovnik is June-August. It’s also the hottest part of the year, with temperatures rising up to 38 degrees Celsius.

Don’t forget your sunglasses, a sunscreen, and a hat. Check out our Ultimate Packing List for more tips.

If you want to avoid the crowds, plan your trip in May or September-October. The weather is warm enough for swimming and sightseeing is more pleasant. At this time of year, the nights are cooler so pack a long-sleeved sweater for a night out.

Most Croatian beaches are made of pebbles or rocks. If you have sensitive feet, it’s a good idea to pack plastic shoes for water.

Where-to-stay-in-dubrovnik-Lapad_Beach

Hanging out at Lapad Beach in Dubrovnik

With many cafes, restaurants, and shops frequented by the locals, you won’t have a feeling of being in a tourist ghetto.

The reason number one for staying in Lapad is to enjoy the sun and the sea to the fullest. Wherever you walk in Lapad, a beach is just around the corner.

Some are managed and charge you to use a deck chair and a parasol. But you can always do what the locals do - walk beyond the main beach and find a secluded wilder stretch.
