Getting to Dubrovnik can involve some planning because of its geography. Located on the southeastern tip of Croatia, with a mountain rim separating it from Bosnia, near a border to Montenegro and facing the sea, land travel to Dubrovnik is limited to just a few roads. (See Dubrovnik on a map) You don't just wander into town! Despite its geographic limitations, there are lots of ways to get to Dubrovnik--flights, buses, ferries and roads. The one thing you can't do is take a train to Dubrovnik because there are no trains to Dubrovnik.
