Hotels in Dubrovnik  (3 Answers)

Can anyone recommend hotels in Dubrovnik. Planning a 2017 summer trip. Family of 6 total (2 adults 4 children). The challenge for us at times is getting all of us in one room/suite. We are hotel snobs. Looking for recommendations. Villa-Dubrovnik seems nice - but a little high in price. Any others? Near town? Would want it to be near town, with a pool and near a beach.

Any nice beaches from Split upwards to Istria?

Hi all. I will be travelling in the next week along this coast. I want a nice beach, but not going to islands as this is time consuming and needs planning in August, so far we been late going one place to another whether it's border crossing or traffic, plus we need to be in Trieste on night of Aug 16. We are looking to do a few days here and there on the coast I just described on August 10 til then. We will like to do Split and Zadar but we also like to use our bathing suit once this trip. We will be in Mostar on August 9 I imagine the border crossing a nightmare too! If you know a few good beaches along that coast would be great and open to suggestions . I also have two small kids. Thanks!

Trip Covering Plitvicka National park and Dubrovnik  (5 Answers)

Hi All, We are planning summer trip in Croatia from UK ( 2 adults and 2 kids ).
We have around 7 nights in Croatia. Thinking of following itinerary.

Day 1: Fly to Zagreb in the morning and drive to Plitvic Park and try and reach there by afternoon. Try and do a simple trail in the park if possible.
Day 2: Spend in Plitvic Park and travel to Split and reach there in the evening.
Day 3: Spend in Split.
Day 4. Travel to Dubrovnik
Day 5-8 : spend in Dubronvik and fly back on Day 8

Does this sound a very ambitious plan? My thinking behind this planning is that , we will spend some time in travelling, but will get to see Plitvic National Park, which seems to highly recommended, and then second part of the holiday, we will be relaxing in Dubronvik.

Can anybody see any obvious flaws in the plans e.g. any travel issues from Zagreb to Plitvic, or finding 2 nights accommodation in Split etc.

Ideally I would prefer a self catering apartment in Dubronvik and hotel in Plitvick and split.

Any ideas suggestions?

Bus travel  (3 Answers)

Hi! Booked flights and accommodation so far taking my bf and I from kotor-Venice over 3 weeks this August. Itinerary below.

Kotor-Dubrovnik-Mostar-kravice falls-makarska-omis-hvar-vis-split-krka-zadar-plitvice-prematura-pula-Zagreb-Ljubljana-skocjan caves-lake bled-Venice.

Usually one or two nights at each stop.

I have a car hired for the Split-Zagreb section And will then get a train to Slovenia and I'm sorted from there. Also sorted from Mostar-makarska.

I plan to get busses the rest of the way. Do I need to book these busses online or can I just turn up and get on the bus paying the driver or ticket office on the day?

Worried about not being allowed on a bus because it's too full but also booking ahead leaves little room for spontaneity and booked tickets might be worthless on the day?!

Any suggestions would be great. Also, boat from Omis to Hvar without having to go to split first. Possible?

Thanks! :)
