If you enjoy seeing new landscapes, Dubrovnik can be reached from Central and Western Europe in several ways; please select from the following:
From Western Europe:
1. Via Rijeka – motorway and continental road:
Rijeka - Senj - Žuta Lokva - Gospić - Dugopolje - Vrgorac - Ploče (motorway) - Dubrovnik.
