Srđ Hill Above Dubrovnik

THE BEST PANORAMIC VIEWS OF DUBROVNIK

Dubrovnik spreads on the slopes of Srđ hill, 421 meters high. It is a karst hill with rare vegetation, mostly pines, and maquis. Named after the first saint patron of Dubrovnik, an ancient Christian martyr Saint Srđ, today is the most famous hiking area for locals and tourists.

A hiking trail called the Way of the Cross goes from the city all the way to the top of Srđ hill. Traditionally, a Sunday before Easter a procession goes all the way to the top, as well as on the day before the St. Nicholas day, on December 6. On that day, we celebrate the Dubrovnik Defenders Day, the memory of the heroic resistance against the former Yugoslav Army troops during the siege of Dubrovnik (from October 1991 to June 1992)
The Homeland War Museum, situated in the Imperial fortress on the top of the Srđ hill, provides the artifacts, maps, weapons, and video-clips about the siege of Dubrovnik. Shells and artillery missiles damaged the fortress, and it is a constant reminder of the severe attacks over the city.

For those who do not enjoy hiking, a panoramic cable car goes to the top.

Once there, you will discover the gorgeous view, not just over Dubrovnik, but also over the surrounding territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The state borderline is just a few miles away; there are no visible signs of it.

A place of nice views, and so much more

There are more hiking trails on the top if you’d like to enjoy an easy walk in the shade of pine trees to the nearby village Bosanka. Have a nice meal there, tasting the lamb or veal baked with vegetables under the lid, the traditional dish prepared in front of you, on an open heart.

For more fun, enjoy a buggy ride around. Or just sit back on the terrace of the Panorama restaurant and enjoy a breathtaking view over the Adriatic, sipping a glass of local wine.
It’s possible to get on the top of the Srđ hill by car, but be aware that it is a very narrow two-way road, full of serpentines, not suitable for large vehicles (bigger than the van).

Join me on my Dubrovnik War Tour if you would like to know more about Srđ hill, the Imperial fortress and Homeland War.
