I'll be traveling to Split at the end of May with my 80 year old mother, my husband and two adult children. We want to be centrally located so we can walk most places. What kind of accommodations would you recommend that would be affordable for 5 and where would be best?
Also, would you recommend flying into Zagreb, renting a car and touring the coast to Dubrovnik or might that be too much moving around if we really want to enjoy the people and country?
I am traveling to Split and then to Dubrovnik from the beginning to mid September. What should I pack? Also what do I pack for nightlife?
I arrive at Split airport on 7th September 2013 at 3.15pm, I have to wait till about 7pm for my group & transfer to Brac..

Is Internet available, how much & where is it?

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,

Hi, I will be flying to Split on Saturday arriving at 19:00. What's the best way o get to HVAR town? I have seen there is a ferry but it leaves at 20:30 so not sure I'll make it to the port in time? Thanks in advance for any tips.
How long is the ferry ride from Dubrovnik to Split? We plan to ride the ferry on September 24. How many ferries go on that date and do you know the approximate time of their arrival in Split? Thanks so much.
I will visit Croatia from 3/7-11/7, airrive and depart from Dubrovnik, I am planing the itinerary. I want to visit Mostar after Dubrovnik then Split, how long do you suggest I should stay in Split? how about 4days? some tourists will stay in the islands of Hvar and Korcula overnight, do you think I can make it a day triP? car ferry is easy?
is the traffic between Mostar and Split fine? For Mostar, how long do you suggest to stay?
HI, is there a ferry in which you can Go to the island with your car???
Hi, i'd like to know wich is the best area to stay at??
We are coming from Sarajevo on the morning train and will then get the bus to Split and catch the 21:18 sleeper to Zagreb.
I guess the train usually gets in about noon (it's scheduled for 10:57).
We'd like to get a bus along the coastal road. There will be 10 of us.
What are the chances of getting a booking for the bus. I think it starts at the border at Metkovic but we're on a train trip so would like to do as much rail as possible, and Ploce looks like a great place to hang around in waiting for a bus.
Either way, bazillions of people must do exactly this, or at least go Sarajevo-Ploce-Split in a day. I cant find anyone on the ground to give me assurances and the bus timetable that I was looking at has a whopping great hole in it in the middle of the day.
Can someone assure me that there are loads and loads of buses leaving in the early afternoon and you wont have any trouble getting on, or tell me how to avoid any problems.
I'm planning our holiday for May and I'm trying to work out when to go where! The plan is to have two or three nights in Split and then three nights on either Hvar - probably staying in Jelsa - or Brac, staying around Supetar. We won't have a car so are reliant on public transport. From what I can tell, the catamarans/ferries leave Split around 4pm and leave the islands around 6am - is this correct? (These are the sites I'm basing this on!)
This is going to affect hoy many nights' accommodation I book in Split so it would be great to have this confirmed!
My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon in Croatia. We wanted to spend 2 days in split, then 2 nights in Hvar before coming back to Split to catch our flight very early in the morning. We are going to be there in late July, and I heard from one source that the ferries do not always run on schedule, and that to get a catamaran to Hvar we will have to wait hours in line because you can't buy tickets in advance. We were warned that if we want to have a relaxing honeymoon, we should just stay in Split for the entire time and not stress ourselves out with getting to and from Hvar. We will not have a car, we will just be on foot.
However, I really want to go, it looks like a lot of fun, and I'm worried that we will get bored hanging out in Split for 5 full days.
Does anyone have insight on how difficult it is to get between Spilt and Hvar in July?
Can anyone tell me what is happening with the Marjan Hotel. I heard a couple of years ago that it was going to be a Hilton Hotel, but cannot find anything about it. Is it finished, or what is happening to it.
I found out the answer is of course yes according to this
but I'll ask it anyway as a way of soliciting comments about the place.
We are doing this train trip next July where we arrive in Split at 3pm (on a bus from Ploce) and leave on the 21:18 sleeper to Zagreb.
We wont actually have anywhere to grab a shower from getting up in Sarajevo at stupid o'clock in the morning till we get to Venice the following night at 8pm, i.e about 37 hours door to door.
However, I have located Stellon restaurant and all that stuff on the far side of Bacvice, which looks like an ideal base for us (there's 13 of us at this stage of the trip). We could combine a dip in the Adriatic with having a shower, but we really would need a wash afterwards else we'll have all the following day in the Julian Alps being sweaty and salty. We're all middle aged blokes, it's an horrific thought.
So, just to make doubly sure, are there functioning showers ?, we really dont mind paying. And regarding Stellon, there looks to be quite a few places in that block, I dont know if we're going to be able to keep a table going at Stellon for the full 6 hours. We might need to base ourselves downstairs which looks more like bars and clearly dont mind people coming and going, dripping wet.
I cannot find consistent information for opening hours for important sites in Split. We will drive from Dubrovnik on Sunday 9 September, want to visit Diocletian's Palace and other central sites. Staying in Trogir that night and Monday night. It looks like the part of the Palace that we can pay to visit (lower level) is open to 8 pm (20:00)- ? But are Baptistry, Cathedral, and other central sites open on Sunday afternoon-evening? Archeological museum looks closed Sunday & Monday.
Would we do better to go straight to Trogir and spend time there on Sunday, return to Split on Monday? Cannot change overall schedule beyond this. Thanks!
We are an active senior couple from the USA who will be visiting in Split on Thursday September 6th. We would enjoy meeting an English-speaking resident or couple who would like to show us around your city/town and hopefully create a friendship.
Learning about your culture and way of life is of interest to us. And this is a good way to create peace in the world.
If interested and free that day, please post a reply. No professional tour-guides, please.

I need some help here, its the first time that I'm traveling to Croatia my trip will go from Split to Dubrovnik.
I would love to know if someone knows if its possible to rent around these two areas a little boat without need of license and how much can it cost?
I know in Italy and Spain you can rent little boats that takes you to little lost paradise beaches and I was wondering if I will be able to do the same here.
Thank you all for your help!
I arrive in Split on September 1st by car so I am looking for a hotel, B&B or apartment to rent for the night. What is the best area of the city to stay in? Does anyone have any recommendations of a place to stay. I tend not to like the expensive, modern chain like hotels. I like a simple local room in a character building. Thanks for your help.
Hi there! Planning my second Trip to Hrvatska and I have 2 questions.
1. Is it easy to get a bus from Zagreb to Plitvice Lakes once I arrive there in August?? I cannot find a place online to buy bus tickets back and forth. Also, should I do the guided tour or just wander through with my husband? Finally, which entrance, 1 or 2 is better?
2. Once I arrive in Split, I want to take a day trip to Hvar and maybe another island. Can I just buy a ferry ticket once I get there? I must go to Hvar and don't want to miss out on a trip by not having a ticket in advance.
Hvala in advance!
