These cable cars make getting from here to there a scenic, adrenaline-pumping adventure.

Dubrovnik Cable Car, Croatia

1 of 17

If a fiery sunset over the Adriatic sounds mesmerizing, imagine the added drama of viewing it 1,329 feet up Srđ Hill, with the outline of Dubrovnik’s orange-roofed walled Old Town twinkling below. Bombed out during the 1991 Balkan conflicts, the original 1969 cable car was reopened in 2010 (you can visit the Homeland War Museum next to the upper platform). Its four-minute run remains one of the best ways to take in the Dalmatian coast whatever the time of day: ancient towns, rugged, vertiginous coast, snaking roads, greenery-topped rocky islands looking like jade jewels in a sapphire-blue sea. Buy a one-way ticket up, and it’s an equally scenic 30-minute walk back down. dubrovnikcablecar.com
