    • Advice on trip to Trogir? Thanks!

      Trogir 8 hours ago

      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:(

We also would like to go to Dubrovnik, but we are not sure if we will have time to do it, but if somebody has an opinion and advice of a easy and cheap way to get there, please share it! :)

      Tips about typical food and that stuff are welcome as well :D

    • Accommodation right next to sea?

      Dubrovnik Jul 10, 2014 at 7:52 AM

      We'd like to spend a week of our 3 weeks in Croatia in a place right next to the sea where we can hear the waves outside. It doesn't matter what sort of accommodation it is as long as it's quiet and of course clean. Would anybody have a recommendation for a place in, or very near to, Dubrovnik which would fulfil this requirement?

      Thanks a million.

    • Croatia - Hvar Town to Vela Luka with Bikes

      Korcula Jul 2, 2014 at 6:10 PM

      Hi,

      We will be doing a cycle trip of Croatia's Dalmation Island in September.  Does anyone know if it is possible to go direct from Hvar town to Vela Luka with bikes? We will be travelling in early September and everything we have read indicates that the catamarans won't take bikes.

      If anyone can shed light on this it would be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks

    • Accommodation - single Dad and two boys

      Croatia 21 hours ago

      Is it usually easy to find accommodation on arrival in small seaside towns in Croatia? Eg. in the Greek Islands, each arriving boat is met by a gaggle of people offering cheap rooms to stay in. Is it similar in Croatia ? Travelling this way appeals, because we don't have to commit in advance to staying in one town, and can wander at will. However, I'm a single Dad with two boys (8 and 10), and spending most of the day looking for places to stay would be a big hassle. We're hoping to go to somewhere around Zadar at the end of July/beginning of August - ie. the height of the season. Very grateful for advice !

    • Porec to Ljubljana - direct transport

      Porec Jul 2, 2014 at 4:53 AM

      Hi
      Searched the following website for buses between Porec departing 18:10 to Ljubljana arriving 20:43 (30441)
      and note there are 2 buses scheduled per day both too late for me.

      balkanviator.com/en/bus-time...

      Also found the following and it has too many chages of buses/trains:

      Depart Poreč, Bus station 08:15, arrive Pazin, Bus station 08:50 (14204 )

      Depart Pazin 10:22, arrive Lupoglav 10:51 (S-Bahn)

      Depart Lupoglav 15:10 arrive Buzet 15:28 ( S-Bahn)

      Depart Buzet 16:00 arrive Divaca 16:47( R 7704)

      Depart Divaca 16:55 arrive Ljubljana 18:40 (R 2615)

      Are there more direct option in the morning by bus?

      Thanks

    • Suggested intinary

      Zadar Jun 24, 2014 at 5:16 AM

      Hi, we are a family with 2 young children (3,6) travelling to Croatia in the summer. We have 12 nights flying into Dubrovnik and out of Zadar. I have already booked 4 nights in Dubrovnik but looking for suggested intinary to get to Zadar for our flight out. My wife is not very keen on moving very often, so really only looking for two bases along the route, 4 night each. There seems to be so many options, obviously the island look lovely so could island hop, but my current though is to drive along the mainline coast and stop at Makarska which looks very pretty with access via ferry/boat to the islands for day trips and possibility trip to split from there. I can't then decide if to stay at Zadar itself for the remaining 4 nights, or the smaller town of Sibenik, again as a base to visit the nearby national parks etc. Of course we will need time for beaches and relaxing too!

      Any thoughts on my suggested route and the places I have chosen. Any thoughts would be much appreciated.

    • Bus travel with kids

      Zadar Jun 21, 2014 at 9:44 AM

      Hi, very new to VT, but like it so far. Could anyone offer any suggestions...we are traveling to Croatia in July and from what I have read, it seems to be an ok idea to get around by bus rather than renting a car. Normally we would rent a car, but we really only plan on going to some national parks and to also get on the ferry and island hop. BUT, we would rent a car if some of you thought it would be better with 2 three year olds. We are an active family and hike a lot, so the kids are used to walking. My big question is during the peak season, how crowded are the buses and will there be a long wait?

      Dubrovnik in July

      Dubrovnik Jun 17, 2014 at 6:48 AM

      Hi, I have enjoyed reading the travel pages and see that we are warned about huge crowds, especially from the cruise ships.
      I wondered if there was any way to get advance warning of these? Or, are there some days that are less crowded than others because of cruise itineraries etc?
      Also, I note that there are many island ferries - or organised trips available.
      I would like to do Dubrovnik - Lokrum - Cavtat - Dubrovnik one day. Is that feasible?
      Any tips or trick from recent visitors would be most welcome!
      We go out on 15th July.

      by buckrodgers Online Now Sep 28, 2012 at 9:52 PM

      I see that the weather in Vis for the next 1-2 weeks will be a max during the day of around 22 degrees and sunny:

      yr.no/place/Croatia/Split-Da...

      Is that warm enough for the beach and swimming, or too cold to actually go into the water?

      What is the water temperature like right now?

      Thank you.

    • Where to stay, and where to go from Vis on way to Dubrovnik

      by sueshearer Online Now May 20, 2011 at 7:46 AM

      Hello.

      We are arriving in Spilt on 2nd June for three days and plan to travel to Vis on Sunday 5th.

      I would welcome any suggestions as to a nice quiet place to stay, with a beach, and some small bars, restaurants and shops.

      After four or five days on Vis we need to head down the coast towards Dubrovnik, and would like to have recommendations as to where to go.

      We have in mind Korcula, Orebic or Mjlet. Which would anybody suggest. Our budget is not too bad, but not a great amount!

      We need to be in Dubrovnik by 12th/13th June, really.

      Also is there anywhere just up the coast from Dubrovnik that would fit above description, but allow us to get bus/boat to the town for sight seeing.

      Rent a car in vis

      Hello everybody!
      I would like to know if on Vis island there is any Rent-a-Car because each time I went there I had my car with me. A friend of mine will go to Vis without car and asked me if there is the possibility to rent one, but I didn’t know how to reply.

      I can remember that in Vis town the travel agency rent scooters and bikes, but I don’t remember cars.

      Thanks in advance! Chiara

      Hi all - Boyfriend and I will be in Vis from August 21-25. Don't want to spend more than 35/40 euros together per night (i.e. no more than 20euros pp/per night). I'm kind of picky about cleanliness. My questions are - should we book ahead of time or just go there and get offers at the port like everyone has described - and second, if we should book ahead, any tips? Thanks in advance for any tips!! Julie
