Is it possible to take the bus from Zadar to the Plitvicka Jezera National Park for a day trip and then take the bus from there to Split??
It is. (See http://www.autobusni-kolodvor.com/ for timetables) however, Plitvicka is worth an overnight stay.
I agree with the previous poster. I spent the night there, got up early and had the park to myself for an hour. If it means spending one less day in Split, I would still do it - I thought it was one of the nicest places I had ever been.
I had been told that the bus to Split might not stop and pick me up because it might be full. 4 of us who got on at Plitvice were the only passengers.
