Hello, I've been looking for a hardback book with photographs of the hundred Renaissance summer palaces in the countryside surrounding the city of Dubrovnik. I saw the book on holiday in the summer, but cannot now remember the exact title, or find it via google. If anybody knows what I am talking about, please answer.
Does anyone please know the addresses for the following shops:
Knitting Shops/Craft shops for knitting patterns/techniques
Musical instruments local sheet music & accordians
Crystal/glass - I always take home a piece of the local glass
Croatian cookery books in English
Likewise any shops in Mostar and Montenegro - we will be doing the usual coach trips on the tourist trail
Can someone please give me honest answers on the following trips which are being offered by the tour operator
Elaphite Islands = doesn't seem to be a lot there apart from scenery
Cavtat - is this just a holiday resort
Ston & Tresteno ??
We like small towns/pretty villages with interesting shops and some scenery along the way
To put it mildly I am extremely confused - tour operator says that Euros are widely accepted in Dubrovnik & surrounding area and then goes on to say that tours are payable in local currency. We intend visiting Mostar & Montenegro - what should I take - a mixture of both? In Croatia would I do a better deal buying presents to take home in Euros or local - nothing expensive planned just a few inexpensive bits
Hope someone can clarify the confusion the tour operator has caused
I am thinking of a day trip in Montenegro from Dubrovnik and I am wondering if a tour woud be better than just taking the bus. I am particulary interested in Kotor and, tours include many more stops as far as I could see. Second question, do you have any advice for a travel company for the day trip to Monstar? I saw there are many, I would just like to avoid huge group tour, though now it should not be high season.
Can someone please give me an honest answer to how big or how small the boats to Elaphti islands and Mijet island are. Last time I took an Egyptian small boat I had a bad panic attack - I have no problems with reasonable sized boats but I do have a problem walking narrow gang planks. Sorry to be such a wimp but I don't want to spoil the excursions for others. Many thanks
I`m gonna travel to Croatia in a few months, and wanna go to Dubrovnok by car, but I have some concerns about crossing the bosnian border. Is it easy to drive from Split to Dubrovnik?
Hello everyone ... After many years of planning a trip to Croatia the time has finally come ... Going next week !!! Weeeeeeeee. But I need some info from my fellow travelers .... We have decided to rent a car for the week were gonna be in Dubrovnik .....
So question # 1 how is easy is it to go to Split ??? I know they were constructing a new highway but from what I read it might not be worth it to drive on the new highway since the route which most people and buses tke is more scenic ......
Question #2 ..... How easy is it to go to Montenegro on a day trip such as Kotor and the surrounding areas ??? ny issues at the border besides having the right documentations for rental car ????
Question #3 ..... Parking can't be worse than Manhattan in NYC to find a spot ????? Or can it ????
Thank you in advance to everyone ....
We are staying in Cavtat flying to Dubrovnik airport . Wanting to pick up and drop off a car at the airport . We were wondering what are the best deals , is it best to hire online before we fly , hire one when we get to the airport or get a taxi to our resort and hire one in cavtat ?
What is the weather typically like in late October and November in Dubrovnik?
Anyone got good accommodation suggestions for 2-day stay in early sept this year? Without breaking the bank :)
Will be in driving to Dubrovnik from Split on Friday, Sept 6 and returning to Split Monday, Sept 9. Looking for interesting or unusual accommodations for 2. Not interested in big hotels or chain hotels. Perhaps a small inn or family run establishment with Croatian 'charm.' Since we have a car, we certainly have the option of staying outside of the city itself. Thoughts? Kind regards, Deb
Thinking about visiting Dubrovnik middle of October - what will the temperatures be like and will the hotels be fully functional - restaurants/tourist attractions etc
I need to hire a locksmith, and a general contractor for a property not far from Dubrovnik. I also need recommendations re: where to buy appliances (fridge, stove...etc)
I've got the opportunity to go to Dubrovnik for about 11 days at end of July/start of August. I would like to take the chance to see a bit more of the surrounding region and I wonder could people advise as to whether I should maybe go in to Montenegro for a few days (and if so, the best things to see in 2/3 days) or maybe try and see a few different islands up the coast from Dubrov. I'll be flying in and out of Dubrovnik, so will need to return there from wherever I visit.
Many thanks VTers,
We are planning a visit to Dubrovnik at the end of July. I studied history, so I think staying in the old city must be fantastic! But I think it will be very touristic and crowded as well. Since we really need to rest to, I can't decide if we should stay at a beach area, nearby the old town but more quite, with a nice sea view, so we can relax and visit the old city easily by taxi. What would be the right place to stay? Or would you recommend staying in the old city and going to the beaches during the day (since it must be very crowded because of the cruise ships) Could you please tell me a bit about the atmosphere of the beach areas nearby and the old city? Thank you very much on advance!!
I have a problem because I want to go from Sofia to Dubrovnik, I know I have to do some scales but I can´t find which place to do it. Somebody know the best connection to go over there by train or bus? thank you

Thank you in advance and sorry for asking so many questions -- look forward to your replies and thoughts :)
I will travel to Dubrovnik from 3/7-11/7 with my wife, we will rent a car to make the journey convenient and flexible.
I have seen the pic of the old town of Dubrovnik, which is very facinating! we want to stay in the apartments inside old town, however i know july is the hot tourist season there, would it be easy to park my car around the old town? if not, can I get a place to park the car near the old for free?
July is the popular tourist season in DBV, do we need to book everything ( hostel and car ) in advance??
what else places are worthy to have a visit around Dubrovnik except the old town?
Hi, which area do you recommend to stay?.
Any yoga studios in the center of Dubrovnik?
I am looking to park one car near the city of Dubrovnik inexpensively. Can anybody help? Public garage in Dubrovnik cost 900 kuna ($153 US) per week, it seems expensive.
Thank you very much.
Hello. Is the water temp. nice for swimming in early September (near Dubrovnik)?
We are an older couple staying 2 nights at the end of a cruise in May. My husband tires easily. Looking for a guest house close to the old city - less hilly if possibloe.
I am planning my vacation from late September to early October from Dubrovnik to Korcula, from Korcula to Hvar, and from Hvar to Split. I went on the Jadrolinja website and it shows sailing dates from Dubrovnik to Korcula only for 9/26 and 9/29. I guess the saling schedule after September is not yet available. I am leaving Dubrovnik for Korcula on 9/29 anyway so that is not my main concern. My main concern is planning the ferry connections from Korcula to Hvar and from Hvar to Split since I need to make the reservations for the pensions now. Are there ferries other than Jadrolinja that operate from Korcula and from Hvar? Based on your past expriences, are there daily ferries in early Octrober from Korcula to Hvar and from Hvar to Split?
Hello, i am trying to find out how we can travel from Novi Sad to Dubrovnik in July. We would rather travel overnight if possible and we want to avoid flying.
I know there are no trains to Dubrovnik but I cannot find decent bus services.
I have considered changing in Sarajevo or Bar in Montenegro. Can someone help me please? Thanks!
Hello, me and my friends will be travelling from Novi Sad in July. We will be getting a train to Bar, where we hope to spend a few hours before moving onto Dubrovnik. Can you tell me if there is a bus from Bar to Dubrovnik?
Is it possible in May /June to travel from Greece to Croatia by any form kf sea transport without having to cross over to Italy???
We are going to take a day trip via bus to kotor from Dubrovnik in April, during the week. Can we purchase round trip bus tickets at the station in Dubrovnik or do we have to purchase the return in kotor? We are coming from the USA so we won't have euros with us (obviously we will get some if needed ), but thought it might be simpler just to buy the whole ticket with Croatian currency.
We are going to have a driver for a full day for a day trip to mostar--wanted to see if there were any interesting sights along the way we should look at--we are also going to medjugore. Nothing very time consuming or out of the way, but something easily accessible.
