This part is making my head spin.

"If you are involved in a car accident, no matter how insignificant, you are required to call the Police.

The phone number of the police is 92, but the sentence above does not apply any more and in fact you will pay a fine (500kn) for calling the police for a fender bender.If you are involved in a car accident, no matter how insignificant, you are required to call the Police."

Which is correct and which is not?

Going to Dubronik in Sept and want to get to Venice....Austrian air one way is $$$$$....anyone ever bus to Slpit and take the ferry to Ancora Italy and then train to Venice?????????

better: Ferry Dubrovnik-Bari!

Dubrovnik to Venice[edit]

Best route is to take the Jadrolinja (sp?) ferry sraight up the coast to Rijeka, then catch a train to Venice. Travel in Croatia is cheaper than Italy, so better to do the majority of your travel in Croatian waters.

I've taken the boat across the adriactic to Bari. Not a bad trip at all. Although Bari has one of the highest crime rates in Italy (at least when I was there...) so I don't recommend showing up late at night.

Ferrys also only run from Split and Dubrovnik every few days, so plan your schedule accordingly. If you miss the boat, you'll be stuck for a few days.

Best of luck.


By Plane[edit]

Doing some research-- as far as I can tell, there is no flight on Brussels airline from Brussels to Dubrovnik. Will continue to research and delete it in next few days if I can't find the flight referenced here from 2006.

Names of attractions[edit]

I have some images, but I don't know exatly what is on the photo. Can help me anybody who well know Dubrovnik? (the linked images are can find at Wikimedia commons or Wikipedia)

1. What is the name of the cathedral: cathedral? I find this as Velika Gospa cathedral, but what is the international name? At http://wikitravel.org/en/Dubrovnik I found several name to attractions. May it can be the Cathedral of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, but may at an other page write about a connection with Saint Blaise.



2. Sponza Palace This shows the Sponza Palace? The description writes Rector's Palace. Sponza=rector? Or is that an other building? After my search I think yes, this pictures show the Sponza, the other the Rector's where there are the warmemorial.




3. I found the name of my photos subject: Franciscan Monastery. But at an other pages descript this site as Dominican Monastery! At http://wikitravel.org/en/Dubrovnik there are writing as this is to several monastery, what is the truth?

Attraction listing details[edit]

Addition of street addresses and telephone numbers is something that would really help the traveller. OldPine 07:43, 30 September 2007 (EDT)

Visia Dubrovnik 5D Theatrum and Ethnographic Museum[edit]

Is there a reason why the Theatrum listing was substituted for the Ethnographic Museum listing? Did one replace the other? If not, the edit would be unjustified. If so, please tell us. I haven't visited Dubrovnik and don't know. Ikan Kekek 08:31, 18 March 2011 (EDT)

City Walls[edit]

If you want to avoid paying almost USD25 to see the walls (which are the most impressive attraction in the city), there are ways you can easily get on to the walls for free. After you enter through the main gate, head east walking through the old town like you are aiming for the most southeast corner of the walls. You should come to a wire fence and through the fence you will see people walking along the wall path. Wait for the number of people to slow down and scale the fence (it's about 6 feet tall, normal fence size) and head onto the wall walk for free.

Is it really appropriate to have guidance on how to trespass on here? Aside from the dubious ethics of supporting the behaviour in the first place, there's also the chance that people who follow this advice might be caught and penalised. --JohnG84 12:26, 11 December 2015 (UTC)

Hi, you are right. This information is misleading and inappropriate, and it has been deleted. Thank you for pointing it out. Hope to see more of your contributions. --Binbin (talk) 10:22, 11 December 2015 (EST)
