Day 4: Dubrovnik, Croatia (3)

Dubrovnik Cable Car approaching upper station

The views from the top of Mount Srd were even more spectacular than the views from inside the cable car. Here, you can see a gondola approaching the upper station, with the city of Dubrovnik 405 meters or 1,329 feet below.

Tourists on Dubrovnik Cable Car viewing platform

A glass-walled observation deck offered a panorama that extended from the bay of Dubrovnik to the suburb of Gru┼ż. The cable-car company claims that, on a clear day, visitors can see up to 60 km or 37 miles.

Old Harbor in Dubrovnik from cable car

Cheryl cranked out the telephoto lens on her Panasonic Lumix DMC-LS15/TZ25 travel camera to snap this photo of Dubrovnik's Old Harbor. (You can see L'Austral's tender landing in the upper third of the picture.)

L'Austral in bay of Dubrovnik

She used the same camera to shoot this photo of L'Austral at anchor in the bay of Dubrovnik.

The uncropped photo below (taken at the 35mm equivalent of a 63-mm focal length) shows how far away the ship was. L'Austral is in the upper left section of the image.

Inside the station, a large black-and-white photo showed an earlier version of a Dubrovnik Cable Car gondola. (According to the official Web site, the cable car was built in 1969 and has attracted more than 2.5 million visitors.)

Butterfly on British tourist's finger - Mount Srd

Outside the station, a butterfly was taking a break on a British tourist's fingertip.

After spending an hour or so on Mount Srd, we returned to Dubrovnik. (This picture was taken just before the cable car reached the lower station. You can see the Old Harbor between the walls in the background and the tile rooftops.)
