By Air

Dubrovnik Airport is located ~20 km south of city centre. There are many airlines that connect Dubrovnik with European and other international destinations.

Getting to the Venue

There are several ways to get from the airport to the MSBM venue.

Shuttle bus services operate from Dubrovnik Airport to central Dubrovnik. These are timed to coincide with each flight’s arrival or departure, 7 days a week, all year round.

The bus will take you to the Pile Gate (pronounced “peel-eh”) in Dubrovnik for around €10 (single) – €15 (both ways).

To get the bus; once you have cleared customs and exited into the arrivals hall at Dubrovnik Airport, buy your bus ticket at the Platanus kiosk inside the terminal building – it is to your right as you exit the customs lane. Or, you can buy a ticket online.

Note, if paying at the airport, you may have to pay for your ticket in Euros. Luckily there are lots of cash points in the terminal building.

Once you have bought your ticket – the bus will be waiting just outside the terminal building.

Get off the bus at the Pile Gate – the first stop. (The bus stop is actually in front of the Pile Gate – here) You will just have driven around the old city walls.

The Pile Gate

It is a short walk from the bus stop to the CAAS venue. Simply walk up the hill from the Pile Gate, until you get to the Sesame restaurant. Then turn left and the CAAS is at the top of the steps at the end of the walkway. The what3words location of the CAAS door is ///

Taxi / Uber from Airport

Alternatively you can get a taxi or an Uber from the airport to the venue. This will be more expensive than if you go on the shuttle bus, but better if you share. Last year the price, by Uber, was around €25-30 each way.
