    • Bus from Zagreb to Plitvice and return

      Croatia Mar 25, 2015 at 8:16 AM

      I will visit the Plitvice Lakes on June 9 (from Zagreb). I've read that is might be difficult to take a bus back to Zagreb at the end of the day/ It's not possible to buy the return ticket in Zagreb (Plitvice-Zagreb) For example, if the last bus if full, I may not be able to return to Zagreb. Because of that, I think it would be better to take a tour (ex. from Viator). Any thoughts on that?

      If I choose to stay elsewhere, is Babin Kuk or Lapad an interesting place? Same question regarding the bus.

I am wondering if the price would be the same if I buy my tickets at the rail station the day of the trip. If I elect to buy on the spot, is it possible that I cant have a seat (train sold out?).

    • Where to spend our 13 days in Croatia?

      Croatia Mar 9, 2015 at 4:14 PM

      Hello everyone. My girlfriend and I booked a return flight from Madrid to Dubrovnik. We'll be visiting Croatia in august for 13 whole days. Our problem is that we are unsure if we'll have time to see the main touristic island, cities and National Parks from Dubrovnik to Pula and back.

      So far we've studied two different possibilities: Visiting just the south (with possible incursions into Bosnia and Montenegro). Or going all the way up and then taking a flight from Pula or Zagreb back to Dubrovnik.

      Since we don't really know about how fast transportation is in Croatia, and a lot of ferry lines seem to be suspended this year (or at least that's what it says here: ), we would appreciate any guidance, help or tip about our next summer vacations.

      Thank you very much!

    • How long in Zagreb

      Zagreb Mar 2, 2015 at 12:16 PM

      I have trouble to decide how many days I will spend in Zagreb. I'll be visiting Croatia from June 8 to June 22, with a 2 day journey to Ljubljana and a one day trop to Kotor while I'll be in Dubrovnik. I'll also take a one day trip to the Plivitce lakes when in Zagreb. So, I am still a bit confused about how long to stay in Zagreb. Are 2 days enough? I won't visit museums, I prefer to walk in the city. thanks

    • Opatija to Plitvice Lakes and return

      Croatia Mar 20, 2015 at 12:45 PM

      We will be in Opatija May 2 with a free day to visit Plitvice lakes National Park. No tour buses go at that time so we need to either hire a car and driver OR rent a car and drive ourselves. So here are some questions:

      1) We would like to take the scenic coastal route one way, and the inland route the other way. How are each of these roads?

      Is the scenic route "treacherous" to drive"? Is the road in good shape?
      Are the signs in English ( both routes) and easy to follow to the park entrance? (Even though we will have GPS I would feel more comfortable if there were good signs on the way.
      I know there are tolls on the inland route but do not know if that is true on the coastal route. Are the toll booth manned? and can you pay cash or credit card ?

      How much time would you estimate for ewach of the drives, It is a Saturday so hopefully not much traffic.

      Thanks You

      Katarina Cruises

      by HelenNZ Online Now Dec 10, 2009 at 9:24 AM

      In June 2007 my husband and I enjoyed a cruise with the Katarina Line on one of their converted fishing boats. I have tried to make bookings for September 2010 and have emailed the company both through their website and also to the person I was dealing with in 07. I have sent about four emails but have not received any reply. The email I sent to the person was receipted as received but no response. Are they still in business? Have they gone under because of the recession? As we were cruising on the southern coast including Dubrovnic we want to explore the northern area this time. If Katarina Line are no longer doing these cruises we would be interested to learn of any other line which does similar trips - the main criteria for us is that it is a smaller cruise boat with up to say forty passengers. Thanking you in advance.
