See Dubrovnik from 400m up thanks to new cable car
Travellers keen to experience the beauty of the city of Dubrovnik during their family activity holidays in Croatia could check out a new cable car which takes people up the nearby Mount Srd.
The cable car, which is not due to open until June 1st 2010, will take just three minutes to reach the upper station, which stands at 405 metres above sea level and offers spectacular views out over the medieval city, according to the Croatian National Tourist Office.
It will feature two carriages capable of transporting 30 people to the platform, which includes telescopes, a bar, a restaurant and a 250-seat amphitheatre.
The new system has been brought in to replace a cable car which carried travellers on the same route between 1969 and the 1990s, during which time around 2.5 million enjoyed the trip every year.
Anyone keen to take in the journey up the mountain and check out the historic city of Dubrovnik on their own family activity holidays to Croatia should view the details of The Adventure Company's Adriatic Adventure trip.
