Dubrovnik's walls are among the most impressive preserved Medieval structures in the world, and the UNESCO city protected by them sends many a foreign visitor up onto them for the couple of hour walk around them. One thing that has come up for many years is the extortionate price which for a time just kept on rising and rising.
The appearance of the coronavirus pandemic, the economic crisis that ensued and the need to change many things to encourage tourists, both domestic and foreign, to pump some money back into the economy requires changes. It seems that it has taken an invisible virus and the threat of economic collapse to make the City of Dubrovnik to finally lower the city wall ticket price.
The ticket price to enter and walk along Dubrovnik's imposing city walls is now just 50 HRK, being dragged down from an 200 HRK. The decision made by the Society of Friends of Dubrovnik Antiquities, which manages the upkeep and care of the walls, is in force until June the 30th, 2020.
This information was confirmed for local portal Dubrovački dnevnik by the president of the aforementioned society, Niko Kapetanić
''Due to the coronavirus crisis, a ticket price of fifty kuna will be applied as of Wednesday for all visitors to the walls, both domestic and foreign visitors. The decision according to which the inhabitants of Dubrovnik-Neretva County can visit and walk the walls free of charge is still in force.
''Additionally, the price of a ticket to the walls in nearby Ston and to Sokol tower down in Konavle has been lowered from 70 HRK down to only 30 HRK, which was formerly the price of a children's ticket,'' Kapetanić said.
