Apartments or Villas in Opatija area  (1 Answer)

My husband and I plan to see a little of the Kvarner Gulf area in late August/early September. We will drive from Trieste and have a total of 4 nights to spend before heading back to Trieste. Any suggestions of a good place to stay (preferably an apartment arrangement) that has a great beach close enough to walk. I don't want to pay over 100 euros/night if possible. Any other suggestions about great restaurants, sightseeing, etc.

Coach from Rijeka to Karlovac -- advance ticket purchase necessary?  (2 Answers)

My wife and I intend to travel by coach from Rijeka to Plitvicka Jezera N. P. on a Wednesday late in May (changing buses in Karlovac). The online timetable shows four buses leaving Rijeka for Karlovac between 10:00 and 13:00, any of which would be OK for our purpose.

My question is this: taking into consideration the time of year, the day of the week, and the time of day, would it be necessary for us to buy tickets a day or two in advance? Guidebooks advise doing this in the high season, but I think the high season begins somewhat later than the last week in May. I'm not sure of this, however, so I would appreciate hearing from someone who knows.

We *could* buy the tickets when we arrive from Ljubljana on the preceding Monday, but it will be rather late in the day and we will be looking for a No. 32 bus to Lovran. Going to the coach station first would complicate matters a good deal for two people carrying luggage who are far from young.

Thanks for any helpful information you can provide.

Budapest to the Kvarner Gulf: Is train or bus recommended?  (1 Answer)

I am trying to figure out the best way to get from Budapest to the Kvarner islands and Istria. All of the websites with bus and train schedules are in Croatian and do not list fares, as far as I can tell. Does anyone know about how much this bus journey would cost vs. taking the train? How can I find websites that might detail this in English?

Transportation problems: Trieste to Rijeka Airport on a Sunday  (3 Answers)

I am arriving in Trieste on Sunday at 1300. Is there any way to catch the evening flight from the Rijeka airport (Krk) to Dubrovnik? Due to the limited Sunday busses I can not find a way to get there in time. 1.Does anybody know of a private transfer company or individual? I considered renting a car but there is no availability due to the Regatta in Trieste that week. 2. Is there a way to get to Zagreb in time for an evening flight? The train gets in too late and connecting busses via Rijeka also arrive too late. 3. I may be able to catch the ferry to Dubrovnik from Rijeka leaving at 1800--but I have the same problem with timely transportation from the Trieste airport. Thank you for any suggestions. I've run out ideas and am turning to my fellow VTers.
