Traffic jam as over 5,000 cruise ship passengers squeeze into Dubrovnik

Written by  May 20, 2016

The historic Old City of Dubrovnik had a real “high season” feel today as thousands of cruise ship passengers poured through the stone gates. In total three cruise ships were docked in the Port of Dubrovnik carrying with them around 5,200 passengers, the largest being MSC Magnifica with over 2,600 onboard.

Special pedestrian traffic regulations were in place on the Pile Gate entrance into the city, although the sheer numbers of tourists meant that a bottleneck formed through the stone arch.

Tomorrow, Saturday the 21st of May, will also be a relatively busy day with another three cruise ships expected and around 4,000 passengers.
