DISTANCE FROM PORT DUBROVNIK - GRUŽ TO THE OLD CITY CENTER
Even though you can get from one part of the city to the other within an one hour walk, Dubrovnik has a really good public transport service. There is a bus heading to each part of the town every 10-20 minutes.
All the city buses are numbered from 1-9 (including 9). The number is visible on front and on the back of each bus, with exception on older buses which can be put in traffic when the need arises. If so, the number and starting/ending station are on a board under the windshield.
Tickets can be bought at newspaper stands, the main bus terminal, some travel agencies and hotel front desks at the price of 12,00 kuna per ticket which is than valid for 1 hour from the first use. Should you be in a hurry, tickets can also be bought in the bus, but the price is 15,00 kuna and it is advisable to have change as the driver doesn't handle large bills. A ticket bought in the bus is valid for that particular ride.
There are also day passes available. They cost 30,00 kuna and are valid 24 hours from the first use. You can buy them at the main bus terminal, and sales points owned by Libertas, the public transport provider.
The taxi stand is in close vicinity to the harbour, and the fare to the Old City costs about 70 kunas. The price for luggage is 2 kunas per piece.
