Make the Most of Dubrovnik: Master Mount Srd

Our holidays to Croatia take place in some of the country’s most beautiful resorts. Dubrovnik is among Croatia’s most popular destinations, and Mount Srd is one of the reasons why…

Many of our clients are avid nature lovers, and if you are one of them, the beauty of Croatia is something you definitely shouldn’t miss. Dubrovnik in particular is alive with colourful flora and fauna, and has incredible landscapes that tourists love. For the best view of all, the summit of Mount Srd is the perfect spot.

Mount Srd by Cable Car

For those looking for quick and easy access to the top of the hill, I would point them in the direction of the newly-restored cable cars. They provide beautiful scenic views as you are ascending, transporting passengers more than 400 metres to reach the summit. Enjoy a birds-eye view of the glorious scenery Dubrovnik has to offer, from the elaborate architecture of the buildings to the white sands and turquoise sea. This vibrant display of colour is truly magical when viewed from the heights of the cable car line.

At the top of Mount Srd lies both a friendly café-bar and the esteemed Panorama restaurant. Each offers an excellent choice of delicious food and drink, and with the open terraces offering the perfect scenic backdrop, there is no better place to enjoy your refreshments.

Mount Srd by Foot

If a client asks us to suggest something a little more challenging, we recommend heading up Mount Srd by foot. However, I would think twice about attempting this feat when the weather is exceptionally warm, as the route is quite exposed. Due to the rocky terrain it is also advised that you wear strong, comfortable shoes.

The walk provides some striking natural beauty as well as several religious panels or ‘stations of the cross’ depicting Christ’s journey to his crucifixion. These religious artefacts are unique to Mount Srd.

Once you have reached the summit, you can also explore a delightful hiking trail that stretches from Fort Imperial to Fort Strinčjera. The flat terrain makes the journey wonderfully calm, and along the way you will walk through parts of a natural forest, providing some soothing shade.
