With only around 20 percent of the number of tourists visiting Dubrovnik this year compared to 2019 clearly a number of businesses are feeling the pinch in the city. From bars to travel agencies, the whole spectrum of tourism and travel in the city is waiting for a brighter future.
And it clearly isn’t only the small business owners who suffered this Covid-19 affected summer season, one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, the Dubrovnik Cable Car, had a challenging year.
The Dubrovnik panoramic cable car owned by Excelsa real estate, part of the Lukšić group, is used to long queues and thousands of tourists, not this year.
“The cable car will carry fewer passengers in the whole of 2020 than it did in October 2019, not to mention the months from the peak part of the 2019 season. We will adapt the winter work schedule of the cable car to the circumstances, for now the cable car is still working,” commented the director Anto Rusković for Dubrovacki Vjesnik.
