Interesting Facts

Cable car history

Built back in 1969 it was the first and only cable car in the Adriatic.
Though the difference was significant, obviously having no WiFi like today, being much slower and having a limited capacity of only 15 people it was surely something to remember because it was offering a unique sight of 2 kilometers of ancient walls that surround the City.
Just like then you may enjoy this beautiful sight today.

The Imperial Fort

The Fort on the top is called the Imperial Fort, but through a large part of its history it was also known as Siege of Ragusa.
The fort was built by Napoleon, and was finished precisely on his birthday, meaning that the fort and Napoleon himself celebrated their birthdays on the very same day, August 15th.
In 2012, Fort celebrated its 200th birthday

The area

The top Cable Car Station is situated on the Hill Srđ. The view is magnificent for sure, but there is much more to it. On the reasonably small area a lot of history is concentrated.
Originally the entire area was called Dubrava. On the local dialect Dubrava means woods, and that is exactly what it used to be. Oak and Pine trees were forested on the 412 meters high mountain plane. The dense forest is the reason behind why Dubrovnik is called *Dubrava/Dubrovnik.
