Arriving to Dubrovnik by car
If you are coming with your own car make sure that your accommodation also offers a free parking service since parking in all Dubrovnik streets is charged and free parking is very hard to find. It is recommended that in Dubrovnik you use public transportation.

Public transport in Dubrovnik
Dubrovnik is a rather small town so the majority of distances can be overcome on foot. However, there are many buses that cover all parts of the city. If you buy a ticket when entering the bus the price is 12 kunas. You can also buy a ticket at a newsstand for 10 kunas.

Currency
National currency in Croatia is Kuna (HRK). Kuna is the Croatian word for marten, a weasel-like animal. One Kuna is divided into 100 lipa; a Croatian word for lime tree.

Credit cards are generally accepted in hotels, restaurants, shops, etc. Still there are some restaurants and shops which do not accept credit card payment, so be sure to check before you order your meal.

The easiest way to obtain local currency is taking cash at ATM machines. When using most ATM machines you will be able to choose the language: Croatian, English, German, Italian, French, etc. ATM machines are usually located in front of the bank buildings. In Dubrovnik Old Town’s main street there are several ATM machines available as well as in most of the hotels. There are many exchange offices in Dubrovnik. Most of them are located in the Old Town and Gruž port. Besides the bank offices and exchange offices, money can be exchanged in travel agencies and post offices. Also almost all hotels have an exchange desk as well.
