alternative to nifty and fast
by HAZ_Hikebot & rvcarter

The mountain north of Dubrovnik, Croatia, reached by most tourists via a nifty and fast gondola from just above the old town walls, is hikable via a rocky trail with many switchbacks from Jadranska cesta (the closest street).

Highly recommended because of the stunning views of Dubrovnik Old Town along the way. At the top is the gondola station, a restaurant, touristy shops, and the remains of a Napoleonic fortress built in 1810.

The tourist guides warn against bushwhacking along the hillside because of unexploded ordnance from the 1990’s war. Honestly, reaching the top of Mt. Srd while visiting Dubrovnik, either by trail or gondola, is a must-do because of the unparalleled views of the city, Lokrum Island, and the Dalmatian Coast line.

    I had the good fortune to again climb Mt. Srd, the hill/mountain to the east of Dubrovnik, Croatia. The views of Dubrovnik from this trail and the top of Mt. Srd are, to use an inadequate word, magnificent. It's not a big climb, and the swithbacks take the sting out of the steepness. One reason that I wanted to post this triplog is to let people know that the gondola from the castle area to the top is no longer in operation. The scuttlebutt is that the owner of the gondola operation refuses to pay taxes imposed by the city, and has taken his millions and left the country. So, you can either drive to top, or make the hike. I recommend the hike since it ranks among the top hikes I've done anywhere.
