GRUŽ (Dubrovnik)

Gruž is Dubrovnik’s suburb grown around the large bay that spreads on the west side of the town. In the way it is the main entrance to Dubrovnik – all ferries, cruise ships and buses arrive in Gruž as the main port/harbour, ferry terminal, cruise port and bus station are all located there. Also, large open air fruit and vegetable market as well as numerous shops and tourist offices are in Gruž too. While historically a manufacturing and industrial base for Dubrovnik, today it is one of the city’s main residential areas.
