ZAGREB, 7 May 2021 – For the first time, a daily ferry connection between Dubrovnik and the island of Lastovo, with a stop on the island of Korčula, will launch.
The catamaran ‘Anastazija’ will operate on the Lastovo-Korčula-Dubrovnik from 15 May 2021, the Agency for Coastal Liner Traffic confirmed.
The Croatian Government made the decision to establish a new year-round high-speed line Lastovo – Korčula – Dubrovnik last year to better connect the island of Lastovo with its county centre, Dubrovnik.
After a public tender, Brodar TP line d.o.o. was selected as the most favourable bidder and next week a contract will be signed with the shipowner for temporary transport to operate the Lastovo – Korcula – Dubrovnik, and vice versa, route. After signing the contract, we will publish the sailing schedule with the price list on the official website,” the agency stated.
The line will is expected to operate every day with a departure in the morning from Lastovo, stopping at the island of Korčula before making its way to Dubrovnik. The ferry will return in the evening to Lastovo from Dubrovnik via Korčula.
The new line will give islanders the chance to go to Dubrovnik, do what they need to, and return the same day.
