    • Car rental and lighthouse

      Pula 48 minutes ago

      I am trying to decide whether we (2 people) will rent a car in Pula for a day or just take the bus from Pula to Rovinj. Can anyone (preferably who has actually rented from a local company, not just someone who knows of one) give me any advice on who to rent from? I don't want to have to go to the airport to rent; I want something in center city. Also, is there anything to look out for? Do you think we'll understand enough to be able to read the rental contract? Are there companies that don't require you to put any more down in advance that you can't get back if you change your mind?

      I mostly just want to go to Rovinj, a little down on the Verudela (spelling?) peninsula and then Pula.

      Also, does anyone know anything about the lighthouse at the bottom of the peninsula? Do you have to go through a private community to get to it? Can anyone just go there to take pictures? I know the inside is probably not open, but I'm fine with that. Thanks.

      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.

      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.


    • Croatian Moped helmet laws

      Croatia 2 hours ago

      Hello my friend and I were riding mopeds down to the store. When the police pulled us over for not have helmets. We know it is illegal to not wear helmets. He explained to us that it was a 1000 kuna fine. However he then said that if we paid today that it would only be 500 kuna. So he took us to an atm and we got the money out. We were wondering if this was allowed or did the officer just pocket the money. We also asked him if this was going in the police system and he said no.

      Croatia May 27, 2015 at 5:21 AM

      Hi Folks,

      I am planning a one week trip to Croatia with my family. Could you please help me chose the place for holiday.
      The two options that come to mind are zadar and Dubrovnik. I suppose Dubronvik will be more beautiful, but I am thinking Zadar might give me more options in terms of visiting National Park etc.
      Can someone plz give me Prod and Cons for each :-)

      We have been to places like Santorini, Taormina, Sitges(Spain) etc. Truely wonderful places, so do you think Dubronvik ( even though it is beautiful ) will be pretty similar to these?
      Are there any decent beaches near these towns?

      Any more options are also welcome. :-)

    • Advice on trip to Trogir? Thanks!

      by jemma1234 Online Now 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:(

      Time to spend in Trogir?

      by bct341 Online Now May 18, 2008 at 9:16 PM

      We will be driving up from Dubrovnik to the Split Airport. Since our flight is later in the day, we were thinking of taking a quick detour to Trogir before turning in our rental car at the airport. Even though the airport is close, I am sure that traffic and parking outside the city might be an issue.

      I don't know how much time we will have but the city looks small. Is it worth taking a few hours to explore? And, what would be the "don't miss" sites considering the limited time we will have?

      Hello guys,

      me and my friends are budgeting a trip to Trogir. I've seen that the accomodation in villas is on average 15 euros / person / night. Since the villas have kitchens we will be making food on our own too. So I am asking you guys if there are any supermarkets or things like that and if so can I see some prices somewhere? Are the prices high even in supermarkets ?

      Another thing is about museums, cathedrals, and maybe boat cruise to an island near. Can anyone help me on that ?

Somewhere quiet, clean and doesn't have to be rock bottom price (it is our 25th wedding anniversary treat!) doesn;t need a swimming pool. Most important thing also is balcony overlooking sea.

      I went on holiday to Brela in Sept 04, and want to return to Croatia in June this year with my fiance. I want to go to Trogir this time as I took a trip there on my last holiday and thought it was gorgeous. But last time I was only there for a few hours. I want to be sure that if we are staying for a fortnight there will be enough to do (we're not really lying-on-the-beach-type people!) and good restaurants, bars etc. Any information that anyone's got about Trogir would be good, and might help ease my fiance's worries. (He thinks we're going to be stranded in the middle of nowhere!!)
      Also, I've found a pretty good deal for the Hotel Medena. Does anyone know what it's like and whether it will meet our needs? That is can we get to other places easily on foot/bus/taxi (after a few drinks!) and what is available there.

      Holiday in Trogir

      by poons Online Now Jul 28, 2005 at 4:03 AM

      First of all I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to diocletianvs, Valadelphia and croisbeauty for all their useful advise and tips which helped me greatly in organising my holiday to Croatia. We are all booked up now and going for 2 weeks, based in Trogir ---- we are so excited!!!

      I just have a few more questions at the back of my mind and wondered if anyone could help me:-

      - Taxi from Split airport to Ciovo (just near to the bridge that goes to Trogir) - how much should I expect to pay the driver?

      - Can I buy things in local currency - will bars/restaurants etc. expect me to use Euros? I always prefer to use the local currency wherever possible. Should I take only local currency, or some Euros too?

      - If I take my ATM card, are there any ATM machines near to where we are staying, Trogir & Ciovo island?

      - Just trying to work out a budget, how much do things cost nowadays in Trogir & Split, ie: meals, drinks etc.

      - Plan to spend lots of time exploring Split - is there a good way of getting multi-bus tickets and entrance to the sights/museums etc. which will be a little cheaper than buying tickets every day?

      Thanks again... I love this virtual tourist organisation, makes me feel that the world is a very small place, and that there are friends in every corner of it!!!

      Hi VT people....

      Phew.. at last I've narrowed it down to two Villas... wondered if anyone knew of them:-

      Villa Dolce Vita which is situated on Ciovo about 1.5km from Trogir town.
      Villa Jidro which is right in Trogir town on the sea front.
      Both want to charge 50 Eur/night for a double apartment with breakfast for 2 people - does this sound like a good price?

      I dont quite understand the geography - Ciovo/Trogir???? could anyone explain to me please.

      What we mainly want from our visit is to be near the sea, be able to walk and explore the interesting and historic places like Trogir town, and be able to use buses or ferries to visit Split and some islands.

      Would to be accommodated in Trogir town be the best option for us do you think? or would being in the Dolce Vita Villa on Ciovo be OK?

      Thanks to anyone who can offer me advise.
