The best way to see Dubrovnik’s Old Town is definitely from above. The Dubrovnik Cable Car station is just outside the Old Town, but the journey provides a birds-eye view of the ancient streets. However, the real highlight is when the cable car reaches the top. Visitors can look over the entire area, the red-roofed city beautifully contrasting with the expanse of the blue Adriatic. It’s particularly popular at sunset when the whole scene is bathed in a beautiful golden glow. There’s also the war museum and a café near the station, making it worth the trip from the confines of the Old Town.
