Dubrovnik Cruise Port is located 3km away from the old town, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a popular tourist destination in southern Croatia. It is the 10th
largest in the world and 3rd
largest in the Mediterranean in terms of transit cruise passengers. It’s a must-see destination for all Adriatic itineraries.
Dubrovnik Cruise Port can currently accommodate up to 5 ships at its 1,100m pier. A new cruise terminal, a modern and functional shopping mall, a multi-story garage and a main international city bus station are all planned to be part of the Dubrovnik Cruise Port. The new project aims to create a new and iconic address, with a modern spirit of the historical city center located only few kilometers away. The functional cruise terminal will offer seamless transit and turnaround cruise operations. Furthermore, the ongoing efforts to increase capacity of the local Čilipi Airport, along with the planned direct highway connection to the city will support turnaround cruise operations in Dubrovnik. The goal is to create a new, iconic place that will contribute to quality of service but also bring the local community together, all within a framework of sustainable development. This project is of paramount importance for Dubrovnik, as it brings new facilities to this attractive area, promotes further development, and brings the port closer to the city.
Global Ports Holding has been awarded the Dubrovnik Cruise Port tender as a majority shareholder and a preliminary concession agreement was signed in February 2016.
