The price of a ticket for the Dubrovnik City Walls could soon become more expensive. The current price of an adult ticket for the famous city walls, the most popular tourist attraction in Dubrovnik, is 120 Kuna, however this could soon jump to 155 Kunas.
The Society of Friends of Dubrovnik Antiquities, the organisation that cares for and operates the city walls, will propose a hike in prices from 120 to 155 Kunas at their general meeting. The reasons they offer for this price rise are the increase in guests on the walls since the beginning of this year. From the 1st of January to the end of end of March the number of visitors to the walls increased by 37 percent, so it is expected that by the end of this year the number of guests will exceed one million. The Society argues that by increasing the ticket prices the congestion on the walls will be reduced.
From the beginning of this year until the end of March the walls were visited by 36,000 guests, which is an unbelievable 10,000 more than from the same period in 2015.
The society will propose the price rise to the Mayor of Dubrovnik, and the final decision by the mayor will be known soon.
