    I would like to travel by fast catamaran from Split to Hvar on Friday morning 16th October 2009 and return no later then 1500hrs.
    Is the ferry running that date because I am arriving at 7am on a Celebrity Cruise ship which departs at 1600hrs and
    I would really like to return to Hvar for a short time, it being some 25yrs or more since my last visit.

    as far as i am aware, all ferries/catamaran leave split in the afternoon, none in the morning..
    sorry

    when you arrive at the airport, ask where is bus stop for buses to zadar.
    once there, there will be plenty of buses going all night towards split.
    these two places are very well connected.
    price will be about 60 or 70 kuna one way.

    I am planning on travelling to Croatia from Italy around May 25, 2009.  I would like to go to Krk.  My departure city is flexible- Venice, Arconas, etc.  What is the easiest way to get to Krk- train, ferry, etc.?

    Take any available transport to Rijeka:
    http://www.find-croatia.com/rijeka/

    From there it is easy to reach Krk as it has bridge so you don’t need to rely on ferries.

    Good evening. I wish you to give me some information about ferries timetables from Hvar to Korcula and from Korcula to Dubrovnik. I want to go with the car. I?m visiting Croatia in July.
    Specifically, I want to go from Hvar to Korcula the 9 th July, and from Korcula to Dubrovnik on the 10th. Is there any problem?

    Thanks a lot

    Jose (good match against Germany!!)

    Drive from Dubrovnik to Orebic and take ferry to Korcula ( 15 minutes one) . From there take ferry to Drvenik and then ferry to Sucuraj on Hvar. Thease ferries are serving every day few times a day so you don’t need to rely on Jadrolinija coastline ferries that are not as frequent as these

    I have just booked a flight to PULA and i am planning to island hop around the islands for 2 1/2 weeks. We have not booked any accommodation as yet, and we were planning to take a tent and camp. Maybe stay for a few nights in a hotel. Has anyone got any advice on what islands to visit. Also should I book all the campsites and ferries before I go. Also we cant drive so whats the best way to get around the islands ?

    Pula is bit further from islands,but you can consider that ferry that goes from Pula to Zadar, stopping on Losinj , Unije and Ilovik before reaching Zadar. https://www.find-croatia.com/ferries-croatia/pula-zadar-ferry.php
    From Zadar visit Kornati islands and after that go down the coast to Brac, Vis, Hvar, Korcula, Mljet islands….
    You don’t need to book accommodation in advance if you are flexible and have tent with you as you can always find place to stay at either rooms or campsites.
    Two and 1/2 weeks is nice and long enough time to visit all islands. Use ferries, catamarans and buses and I am sure you will have great time

    Im flying to dubrovnik on the 5th of july.
    i would really like to stay for the festival which starts on the 10th.
    but my girlfriend prefers the idea of heading to the islands as soon as possible.
    is the opening night worth staying for?

    We plan to travel to either Korcula, or right through to Hvar. havent quite decided yet.
    the only ferrys i found were for;
    wed 9th dubrovnik to korcula.
    thur 10th dubrovnik to korcula and then hvar
    sat 12th dubrovnik to korcula and then hvar.
    are these my only options?  or are there other ferrys/means?

    Opening night of Dubrovacke Ljetne igre is ok, but not worth changing your holiday plans for it.
    In my opinion, of course.
    Instead of ferries, take bus to Korcula, every day at 3pm.
    There will also be this fast ferry to Korcula: 
    https://www.korculainfo.com/ferries/catamaran-dubrovnik-mljet-korcula-lastovo.htm

    Ferry from Rijeka stops in Split, Hvar (Stari Grad), Korcula, Mljet ( Sobra) and Dubrovnik.
    It takes from 6pm to 4 pm following day, about 22 hrs.
    Stop at ports are about 45 minutes. Bit longer in Split.

    Hi there
    Could someone please help? All i can find it old ferry timetables!
    I want to go
    5th Oct AM – Dubrovnik to Korcula – stay o/night
    6th Oct AM – Korcula to Hvar
    8th Oct Middle of day – Hvar to Split
    8th Oct bus from Split to Zadar – arrive about 5pm.
    Could you give me links as well as times, and prices?

    Timetables are not all ready for October 2008. You would need to wait a bit longer.
    In theory, take bus from Dubrovnik to Korcula at 3pm, arriving in Korcula 6.30pm. Then take ferry from Korcula to Hvar, departs every day at 6am. Then take ferry from Hvar to Split ( not sure if you will have an option for mid-day one) but same ferry goes from Hvar to Split every day.
    For buses from Split to Zadar, you don’t need to worry, plenty of them are avilable every day.
    Prices, all between 35 and 90 kuna one way.

    On May 30th my wife and I would like to take  a ferry from Rijeka to Split. Since its an overnight ferry we’d like to reserve a cabin. How far in advance do I need to book this?
    I assume the other ferries we might want to take on the trip like Bol to Hvar and later Dubrovnik to Korcula we can book day of travel.

    If you are foot passenger you don’t need to book ferry in advance. Ferries are large with plenty of places. For cabin  book as soon as you know your dates although May is never very buzy.Good luck

    What is the cheapest way to travel to Croatia and then Dubrovnik in August. We are a family of four. So far I’m looking at flying to Zagreb from London with Wizzair or to Ljubljana with Easyjet. What would you recommend?

    If you fly to Zagreb or Ljubljana, it will take you long time to reach Dubrovnik unless you want to fly to Dubrovnik on local flights.
    I found, searching at our page : http://www.find-croatia.com/flights-croatia/
    return flight from London Gatwick to Dubrovnik on Croatia Airlines for ?142 per person.

    Details : London to Dubrovnik  Thu 14 Aug 2008 ? Thu 21 Aug 2008
    Timing : LGW 10:30  DBV 14:00 &  DBV 08:00  LGW 09:40

    It is reasonable price and no hussle with chenging airports, finding buses etc. Unless you want to visit Zagreb too..

    Excuse my english.
    Thank you very much M.D.

    There is a bus that waits for every ferry / catamaran that arrives in Sobra and takes passengers to Mljet  National Park , Hotel Odisej and other places.

    Porec is in Istria so to reach Mljet take bus to Rijeka and the ferry from Rijeka to Sobra. Check timetable on http://www.jadrolinija.hr

    in reply to: Armin – new Croatian film #15700

    Ana
    Member

    This is what Ognjen Svilicic says about the film :

    My film Armin is a story about father and a son. It’s focused on human relationships, and emotions that we all have. My characters come from Bosnia to the Croatian town Zagreb on an audition for a German movie. They are coming from a country devastated by war looking for better future.

    While this is the social and political environment of Armin, the human relationships are more important to me.
    It’s interesting that when this film is shown in the Balkans or in some other near European country, many spectators first notice the political issue, which is the less important part of Armin. That was the case at screenings in Croatia, Bosnia, Germany and Italy. Many people asked questions about the political situation that is the part of life for my main characters, father and son. On the other hand, people from countries that are farther from the region in which this film takes place first notice the father and son relationship.
    That was the case in Norway, for example. What I noticed in this experience is that the farther away I travel with my film, the more the audience is focused on human relationships. They are not familiar with the political issues, because their country is not involved.
    That is very important for me to remember: If I want to make a movie understandable to Eskimos, I have to tell the story about human relationships and their emotions. That’s why I looking forward to come to New York and Tribeca. If I can reach to the audience so far away from my country, that means that my film is speaking about something that is same everywhere – emotions.

    Great, so it is easy to hire something there?  So we could just take other ferries over instead of the car ones?  Any idea where we can rent scooters from on the island?  Would it be at the ports?

    Try these guys , they rent cars etc :

    The premiere of the Croatian film ?Armin?, directed by Ognjen Svilicic, was held  at the 57th International Film Festival Berlinale in Berlin, within the ?Forum? section at the historical movie theatre ?Delphi?.
    The film made in a Croatian-BiH-German coproduction, deals with a 13-year-old teenager Armin and his father, who undertake a journey from their home village in Bosnia to Zagreb, as Armin was invited there to audition for a German film production about war in the former Yugoslavia.
    The possibility of getting work raises hopes of better times, but on arrival in the five star hotel in the Croatian capital, they realize that they’ve entered a world that seems like another planet to them and whose rules of the game they don’t know.
    The leading roles in that film, which is partly based on true events, are played by BiH actors Emir Had?ihafisbegovi? and Armin Omerovi? – Muhedin.

    Here is short clip and trailer from the film : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=evT-RAr2k9w
    It’s really worth to see

    If hopefully catamaran Korcula via Mljet to Dubrovnik will last until September, take catamaran from Split via Hvar to Korcula, overnight there and proceed following day on other catamaran Korcula via Mljet to Dubrovnik.
    You need bit of luck with timetable though

    It can be very dangerous to hike in the mountains on your own.

    Thanks for that.  I have checked the website which is the best I have seen so far.  The problem seems to be whether the sites will be open as most seem to open in May.  Does anyone know if this is so or will I be able to find somewhere to camp?

    Hi John,

    Although campsites might not be officially opened at the time of your travel, if you ask the owner ( they usually live within the premisses) I am sure they will let you stay.

    How many camping sites do exist on Mljet island?
    I would like to come with a camping trailer.
    The only camping I found in the Internet is AC Mungos.
    But this Camping site is located in Babino Polje and not at the seaside.
    Do you have camping at the seaside in Mljet?

    :-[ no, there are no camping sites on island of mljet located at the sea shore.

    sorry  :'(

    You can also try hard way and travel by bus via Montenegro, Macedonia  or Albania to Greece. This is much harder but probably more interesting way.  ???

    I feel that travel industry is really crap about saving our planet.

    What do you guys think about this?

    I share your opinion Foggy. It is disturbing to see how greedy people can be.

    The latest news is about RyanAir and their outrageus proposal for free flights for people who will email Gordon Brown.

    Ryanair has promised a free flight to up to a million people who write to Gordon Brown to complain about air passenger duty.

    The airline says the increased tax is “highway robbery” and will do nothing to help the environment.

    But Friends of the Earth says this is just another bribery and scam.

    Sky Europe flights to Zadar from Vienna will cost 19 Euros, including airport taxes and charges.

    I tried to book flight for that price, but was unsuccessful.

    Can you help?

    I just tried some dates at skyeurope.com, but airport taxes are always included : 55.19 Euros or 37.98 Euros, so the total fare is always higher than 19 Euros.

    Perhaps this is wrong info then?

    and please also if someone knows where ferry arrives from Split – is it Lapad or Dubrovnik?

    Ferry that sails from Split to Dubrovnik docks in Gruz – another part of Dubrovnik.

    https://www.dubrovnik-travel.net/gruz/

    Take bus from Gruz to Old town as this would be too far to walk.

    Hi everybody,
    I was offered room at Lapad in Dubrovnik and I am not sure is Lapad in Dubrovnik Town or out of the town and is it possible to walk to old town from Lapad?
    Thank you.

    Hi Johnny,

    Lapad is large peninsula right next to Dubrovnik Old town which is part of town of Dubrovnik, so yes, Lapad is part of Dubrovnik. (More about Lapad: https://www.dubrovnik-travel.net/lapad/)

    To walk from Lapad to Old Town, it really depend where in Lapad you wil stay. If it’s in the eastern part of Lapad, then it’s about 1/2 hr walk to the Old Town, but if it’s in the west of Lapad, it would be too far to walk.
    However, you can always take bus no 2 or 6 to go to Old Town.

    Thanks for your answer.
    How far is Fazana from Pula? how long the journey takes?

    Fazana is 8 km away from Pula.
    Bus jorney takes about 20 minutes, depending of traffic.

    It is pretty close, and buses runs from Pula to Fazana every hour or so.
    More often in the summer than in the winter.

    Hello,
    I am planning to fly to Pula Airport and travel further to Islands Brijuni.
    Is there a regular public transport that connects these two places?

    Hi Alpesh,
    First, to reach Brijuni islands you would need to take bus from Pula Airport to Pula city centre.
    From Pula central bus station, take bus to Fazana ( small place north of Pula).
    In Fazana you can take 15 minutes boat ride to Brijuni Islands.
    Thiese boat trips are organized by National Park Brijuni.
