      Diving Pula

      Croatia May 21, 2015 at 2:29 AM

      Hi everyone,

      Thinking and looking for some interesting diving places in Croatia.
      Planning to arrive there in july this year.
      Keep in mind several destinations to stay, Pula or Dubrovnik.

      So need some advice to decide at list, where to go, have some fun, sun and diving in particular.
      We are Padi OWDs, and can dive nor deeper than 20 meters.

      Please be welcome to advise some services providers, dive shops, round Pula,
      to have some boat diving to any awesome places, what should expect to see underwater.

      I was wondering if you could tell more about diving in common and particulary, weather conditins, water temperature, dive safety in this region.

      Thanks in advance

    • Zagreb and Dubrovnik 17 to 29 December 2015

      Croatia 18 hours ago

      Hi there and I hope someone lives in or has been to Croatia, Zagreb and Dubrovnik in December. (Very cold winter).

      3 of us are planning to travel there from South Africa. We don’t know which part of the 12 days we will be there to spend in Zagreb and Dubrovnik respectively. Should we be in Zagreb or Dubrovnik over the Christmas days? I read somewhere they have nice markets then in Zagreb over the Christmas period.
      Should we spend the first few day in Dubrovnik and the last few days in Zagreb or the other way round?

      We don’t know!! Would anyone here know perhaps?

      Diving permission in Croatia

      Croatia May 5, 2015 at 6:54 AM

      I am surfing the Web and collect any info that a tourist scuba diver may need for its trip (me, for example). And I can't be sure as for the diving permission in Croatia. Some say that it is needed anyway and it costs 100 kunas (local currency, about 12 euro), but some say that the permission is not necessary in case you dive with a dive center. But If you deside to dive with your buddy and without dive centers' services, you will have to pay 330 euros per year!

      Please advice, If you dove not long ago in Croatia and know the answer.

    • Dubrovnik Viewpoints & Bus Question

      Dubrovnik May 4, 2015 at 8:20 AM

      Where are the best viewpoints to get to in order to see that beautiful view of Old Town from above, surrounded by water I often see in photos? Is it east of the city (Bosanka area, on drive up to cable car station, other location?) or west? Where are Boninovo Cliffs? I know there are nice views from the cable car, but I was hoping to find something that gets a view from the east, I guess. Also, is there a particular time to go to these viewpoints? Are any available by Libertas bus in late afternoon or evening? What about the Cabrio bus view - I see it stops for photos, although I'm not sure how high up that is, or whether they let you off to take pictures or just take pictures from the bus. About how much would it cost to go up to the best place by cab, stopping for about 10 minutes for pictures, and then returning to Old Town?

      Also, I may try to take a Libertas bus from Gruz to Old Town. I have read, however, something that implies that the buses may be overcrowded at times and I would have to wait for one with space. I'll be visiting late September on a week day around 8:30 AM. Is it possible I will have to wait for several buses before I can get on?



    • Krk or Istria - which one to choose?

      Croatia May 5, 2015 at 1:30 AM

      Hello everyone

      We are 3 girls going to Croatia this September for 8 nights and trying to make our choice between Istria or Krk island.

      The main criteria for us are:

      - safety (which region is better in regards of safety)
      - interesting historical places (where there are more historical places to discover)
      - nice beaches (are there any sandy beaches in Croatia)
      - campsites (are there good rated campings with wifi, electricity, shower, toilets, hot water)
      - and possibility to experience scuba diving (are there any good places to dive, is it possible to dive without prior experience, is it possible to dive in Croatia in September)

      During this time we want to see and experience as much as possible as this is our first trip together in many years and we want it to be very interesting.

      Transportation in the region is also important. How easy it is to get to interesting places, are there shops, supermarkets, dive centers, etc?

      Thanks everybody in advance.

      2. whether we need a car or can get around via local buses,

      3. what the local grocery store options are or if we should just be planning on eating out.  If we should be eatting out, what good inexpensive restaurant options are available?

    • Sucuraj to Drvenik

      Hvar Jan 25, 2015 at 6:59 PM

      Dear Hvar experts,
      We are planning a rental car trip on early September.
      Part of our trip would be from Split to Hvar to Dubrovnik.
      I thought that we should take the ferry from Split to Stari Grad, and take the same ferry from Stari Grad to Split.
      Then I found that there are other ferries from Sucuraj to Drvenik, which might be less crowded and less time to land and less driving time to Dubrovnik.
      Do you think this is a good idea?
      Thank you in advance.

    • Advice on trip to Trogir? Thanks!

      Trogir Jul 13, 2014 at 5:01 PM

      I am staying in an apartment in Trogir for a week in August and was wondering if anyone would be able to give me some advice on a few things?

      1 - I am going with family and a friend, I don't plan to spend much time with family of an evening, was wondering how much money I would need for the week for mainly cigarettes and alcohol? I am not a huge drinker but do like to drink a fair amount whilst on holiday and smoke a lot, does anyone know rough prices of cigarettes and alcohol in Croatia?

      2 - I've heard that Trogir is very boring of a night time is this correct? If so how easy would it be for me to travel to other parts of the country that are more lively and preferably close by as do not want to spend to much on travel?

      3- Which options do I have if I want to travel into Split from Trogir of a night time, is it only taxis or are there other ways and how much time will I spend travelling to Split from Trogir and what will the costs roughly be of travelling?

      4- I've heard that there are no beaches in Trogir or swimming pools, is this true? if so what are the closest beaches that have a good atmosphere and are sandy?

      And finally I have been told that Ciovo is close by, is there any good night life in Ciovo or nice beaches?

      Thank you to anyone who can answer my questions!! As starting to worry that I'm going to have an awful holiday:(

      Hi, sorry if this is inappropriate for these forums, I'm just really struggling to figure out how to do this. I'm trying to get from Geneva to Hvar on July 17th, but if it's not possible then on the 18th. I can't leave until after 12 due to class. Could anyone give me suggestions? I would be down to either fly to Split or to Dubrovnik and take a ferry from there. Just so far the flights I've found last over 24 hours and are just impractical. Also if need be I can spend a night in Split or Dubrovnik and take a ferry the next day if I can't get there in time to make the ferry on Thursday. Once again sorry to be asking something so specific as travel itinerary, but I've been searching a lot and haven't had much luck. Thanks for any and all the help!

      Staying under the radar

      Split Aug 26, 2013 at 6:01 PM


      I haven't been on Virtual Tourist in a long long time but reckon this is the best place to ask the following. In one weeks time I am going to Split in Croatia with a group of friends. We have booked an apartment - my friend who has no accommodation has asked whether he can stay on our couch. Those of us staying in the apartment are completely fine with this but would just like to know the opinions of others on this practice. By this I mean - does the possible risk of us being caught outweigh helping out a friend, etc. If anyone has had experience of this I would be grateful, I have heard of the odd instance of hotels calling the police on people doing this.
      Any advice or tips would be great and I'll definitely take them into consideration.

      Thank you in advance,
