Getting there & away
In addition to the Jadrolinija (418 000; Gruž) coastal ferry north to Hvar, Split, Zadar and Rijeka, there’s a local ferry that leaves Dubrovnik for Sobra on Mljet Island (26KN to 32KN, 2½ hours) throughout the year.
Jadroagent (419 009; fax 419 029; Obala Pape Ivana Pavla 32) handles ticketing for most international boats from Croatia.
Daily flights to/from Zagreb are operated by Croatia Airlines (413 777; Dubrovačkih Branitelja 9). The fare starts at about 400KN one way (higher in peak season) and the trip takes about an hour.
There are also nonstop flights to Rome, London and Manchester that operate from April to October.
