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!
I'm planning on solo in June. I promised so many people I'd do a pligrimage for them, but I have no idea how to get to Medjugorje. I'm going to be in the city of Split for a stopover, I'm only going to have 1 day try to visit Medjugorje.
Do you think I'll be able to visit Medjugorje from Split, and then return back to Split all within 1 day?
Also, can you please help me with the following questions:
Is there a bus that goes from the city of Split to Medjugorie?
If so, can you tell me exactly where the bus picks up at Split?
Also, can you tell me the pick up times from Split and return time from Medjugorie?
Do I need to make a reservation for the bus trip to Medjugorie?
Do I need to make a reservation for the return bus trip to Split?
How much is a bus fare?
Do you know of a company or website that can tell me details about this?
Thanks and blessings!
I will rent a car and drive from Split to Dubrovnik. It appears on the map that Bosnia is in between Split and Dubrovnik. Does it mean I need to enter Bosnia before I can go to Dubrovnik? There also seems to have a route on Google map between Ploce and Trpanj. Is it a cross-harbour tunnel which I can drive through? All helps are much appreciated.
Dear Split lovers,
in the summer of 2012 we're visiting Split with our footballteam for a training camp. We've visited cities such as Barcelona, Istanbul, Berlin and Valencia in the past, but now we want to see the beautiful Split!
A very essential part of our week is always the football training. We want to train 2 or 3 times, but at the moment we are having a hard time trying to find a football field which we can use or rent for a few times.
Is there anyone who can help me find this or can give me a person to contact about this matter? It would be a huge help!
Thank you in advance.
My wife and I will be in Split for one, maybe two nights. What are the 3 nicest restaurants in Split that are not CRAZY expensive?
I have been looking on JADROLINIJA web page and can not find how to make it from Split to Dubrovnik. My wife and I would rather travel be ferry then bus because we are going to be staying in Hvar for a couple of nights before Dubrovnik and would rather not back track to Split. We are also thinking that it would be fun to take the ferry over the bus for the views.
I see some people say that this ferry only exists twice a week.? Can anyone point me in the right direction on how to find what days and times we could make the trip from Hvar to Dubrovnik by ferry. Thanks for the help!!

Hi i am arriving in Split in july but have to catch a bus to dubrovnik the following day. I notice that you cannot buy bus tickets on the net, is one days notice enough at that time of year to buy a ticket at the bus station or do they get booked out?
I'm considering going to Croatia from the UK in the summer of this year. I'd like to be able to learn to sail and this company appears to have very reasonable rates and the possibility of a verifiable qualification afterwards:
Does anyone have any experience using this company or would recommend any other companies that do this sort of thing in this region or possibly another region.
In addition to this I'd like to fit in a day or two fishing, does anyone know of any good fishing charters that cater to single or small group travelers?
