Dubrovnik Bans Wheeled Suitcases

Dubrovnik Bans Wheeled Suitcases

Travellers planning to visit Croatia this summer should be mindful of a new rule for tourists.

Dubrovnik, a popular Croatian city, plans to introduce new rules that will ban tourists from dragging suitcases as residents complain about the racket it causes during peak tourism season. 

The newly introduced regulations state that suitcases must be carried and not dragged through the streets of the town. 

For now, wheeled bags will still be permitted, though the wheels must not be used. Anyone caught rolling their luggage faces a fine of €265. It is unclear how this might impact anyone unable to carry a case due to a physical disability. 

The measure is part of a wider plan to ban all luggage from Dubrovnik by November. 

Later this year, tourists will be required to leave bags and suitcases at a designated spot outside of the city’s walls before visitors are permitted to enter the old town. 

Visitors will have to pay a courier to have their bags delivered to their accommodation by electric vehicle.

Dubrovnik saw a significant bump in visitors after it served as the setting for King’s Landing on the “Game of Thrones” TV show.
