      Advice on tour of Mljet

      by tango_jd Online Now Jan 15, 2014 at 12:59 PM

      We are going to Dubrovnik (Lapad Peninsular) for 1 week in August.
      I've seen various comments on other travel sites suggesting that a trip to the island of Mljet is possible - apparently a boat takes you to the island and a van transfers you to the lakes in the national park all included with the ticket price.
      I have not managed to find out if this would be a regular trip offered by shops in town, or in my resort, or whether I have to do-it-myself.
      Have any of you done this or have advice on doing this trip?

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.

    • Currency - Euros or Local

      by crazymum Online Now Oct 4, 2013 at 4:29 AM

      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

      Many thanks

      day trips out of town

      by xaver Online Now Oct 3, 2013 at 10:13 PM

      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.

      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 ....

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

      Suggestions for a few days trip out of Dubrovnik?

      by CHLuke Online Now Jul 11, 2013 at 6:13 AM

      Hi all,
      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,

      Please help me decide where to stay

      by ASonkaya Online Now Jun 29, 2013 at 8:00 AM


      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!!
