Dubrovnik Cruise Port

Dubrovnik Cruise Port is historically a popular stop for cruises touring the Adriatic and remains one of the busiest cruise ports in Europe. Providing easy access to the picturesque medieval city of Dubrovnik—known as a filming location for the Game of Thrones television series—Dubrovnik Cruise Port is a frequent start point for expeditions up and down the Dalmatian Coast, city and wine-tasting tours, and, of course, Game of Thrones–themed excursions.

The Basics

Compact Old Town Dubrovnik is easy to see during one day in port and many shore excursions begin at Pile Gate, continue along the pedestrian Stradun to the city walls, and visit places such as St. Saviour’s, the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin, and Sponza Palace.

The Dubrovnik cable car offers excellent views of the city and coast from atop Mount Srd, while other shore excursions allow visitors to kayak in the Adriatic Sea or check out surrounding coastal towns such as Cavtat. Dubrovnik also serves as a jumping-off point for farther-flung adventures in the Mediterranean.

How to Get to Dubrovnik From the Dubrovnik Cruise Port

The port in Gruz, a neighborhood about 2 miles (3 kilometers) north of Old Town, is the most common docking spot for arriving cruisers. Otherwise, the ship may dock in the Old Town harbor or anchor in the bay; from there, passengers will be tendered into Old Town. Buses or taxis are available outside both ports, while shore excursions often offer round-trip transportation.
