Almost the last major attraction in Dubrovnik that had yet to reopen after the Covid-19 safety restrictions were introduced, will indeed open its doors to the public this coming Monday. The Dubrovnik Cable Car, which directly after the iconic Dubrovnik City Walls, is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the city, has announced that from Monday the 22nd of June they will once again start operations.
In a press release the owners and operators, Excelsa nekretnine, stated that “We are pleased to inform the public that the Dubrovnik Cable Car will continue operating on Monday, June 22, 2020. We will mark the continuation of our work with special promotional prices that will be valid for a short period.”
And added that “In order to ensure an adequate level of protection in the conditions of danger of infection with the COVID-19 virus, we have introduced a number of preventive measures. Some of the most important are a significant reduction in the number of passengers in the cabins compared to regular capacity, temperature measurement of staff and passengers, mandatory protective equipment for staff, free protective equipment provided for passengers, the lower and upper stations are equipped with numerous disinfectants and all public areas are often cleaned and disinfected.”
Clearly, due to the nature of their business, and the small cabins that whisk passengers up to the top of the Srđ Mountain overlooking Dubrovnik the Cable Car has had to introduce extra special measures. And the company concluded that “We regularly monitor the spread of the virus and we will adjust the protective measures to the development of the situation.”
