              Bus Service

Getting around Dubrovnik by bus is a breeze. All
the neighbourhoods are linked by buses that run
anywhere from every 10 minutes to every half
hour. (See a map of Dubrovnik's bus network).
Busses begin running at about 5am and pick up
their last passengers around midnight.
Tickets are available from newsstands (Tisak’s) or
from the driver but he will expect the exact
change. The tickets are cheapest from the Tisak.
Multiple ride tickets are available from the Bus
Station Office on Pile and opposite Tommy in
Gruţ where the Taxi stand is.
Signal the driver to stop when waiting at any bus
stop as a precaution. When you board the bus,
make sure you validate the ticket by inserting it
into a validating machine or you'll be liable for a

Plavac Mali, a cross between ancestral Zinfandel
(known locally in Croatian as Crljenak
Kaštelanski) and Dobriĉić grapes, is the primary
red wine grape grown along the Dalmatian coast
of Croatia.[1] The name refers to the small blue
grapes that the vines produce: in Croatian plavo
means blue; mali means small.

Croatian wines from this grape include the reds
from Dingaĉ and Postup (both growing regions on
the Pelješac peninsula), Ivan Dolac and Sveta
Nedilja (Hvar island), Bolski plavac (Braĉ island)
and the rosé Opol (a vinification style).
