    I just checked prices and noticed some flights are for free. Only airport taxes to be paid. Seems like good bargain 

    Some flights are just ?10 with no airport taxes. I cheked London Stansted one.
    Zadar is good place to fly to Croatia as it is close to Krka, Kornati and Plitvice national parks, as well as to Split and islands. Good choice.

    Hello Laila,  sometimes is very hot you don’t need sleeping bag, but it can be also cold especially if Bura wind blows or in the mainland like Plitvice Lakes or similar.
    I would still take light sleeping bags just in case.
    Single skin tent with rain sheet would do the job, no doubt. Without rain sheet you are in aquarium if it rains  ;D

    We are trying to get from Venice to Zadar in early July by ferry. Are there any ferries from Venice to Zadar in early July? Another option is stopping over in Pula to get there. Are there are ferries operating from Pula to Zadar on about the 10 -13 of July 2008. It looks like they don’t begin until the 18 th of July. Also wondering how to book a ferry if there is one?

    Hi Kerrie, welcome to our forum!

    No, there are no ferries that sail from Venice to Zadar.
    Ferries from Venice to Croatia are listed here:
    https://www.find-croatia.com/ferries-croatia/venice-croatia-ferries.php

    Pula to Zadar ferry started late in summer laste year, and timetable at this page :
    https://www.find-croatia.com/ferries-croatia/pula-zadar-ferry.php
    is last year’s one, as new timetable is not yet available.
    However, we expect it to be same or similar as last year.
    You can not book that ferry in advance, it is first-come-first-serve one.
    From last year’s experience, we can say there was no problem finding places on the ferries.

    We would like to travel from Vela Luka to the Island of Lastovo (Struga Lighthouse) on April 9th.
    Do you think that it is possible.
    If so, at what time is the ferry passing and what is the cost for 2 persons (without car)?
    Also, we would like to go from Lastovo Island to Hvar, on the 12th of April.
    Do we have to get to Split before? And, at what time does the ferry leaves from Lastovo?

    Hi Caroline, yes it is possible.
    Here is the timetable :

    Planning to use ferries for two passengers (no car) from Venice on May 4 – to make one or two stops along the way down to Dubrovnik (need to catch a flight from Dubrovnik to Zagreb on May 7th).
    Notice some are overnight (which is fine) – and realize the schedule is somewhat limited in May.

    Well, you don’t have too much time to travel :-(
    If you have 6-7 days, that can be nice journey, especially in the summer when lot of local ferries sails around..

    Anyway, I would suggest you to take ferry from Rijeka along the coast to Dubrovnik. You can make some stop-overs  on the way ( Split, Hvar, Korcula or Mljet) if you wish and have time for.

    To come to Rijeka from Venice, take bus or ferry to any Istrian place you like – see ferry map here:
    https://www.find-croatia.com/ferries-croatia/
    and then take bus to Rijeka as there is no ferries between Venice and Rijeka.

    Can you rent a post office box on one of the island post offices?  How does that work?  Or can you just have mail sent from the states in care of general delivery at the island you are living at? 😮

    Hi Jakov, I am thinking of spending some time in the Split region anyway so possibly we could return to London from Split but fly into Dubrovnik at the beginning. How long from Split by bus?
    29th July to 16th August are my dates.

    What lot of people do is to fly to Dubrovnik and then take ferries via islands (Mljet,Korcula,Hvar) to Split.

    Ferries from Dubrovnik to Islands are not expensive (30-50 Kuna per person) so that can be good option.

    Travelling by bus is also interesting as you can see coastline.

    Most of buses has air-conditioning so you shoud be ok as far as temperature is concerned.

    Your dates are pretty buzy, very high season..

    There’s also Tamaris bookshop at the Ban Jelacic Square. Currently their closing down their bookshop, so the prices of all books are 50% off.

    I though that Istria was a “must” to see in Croatia and meanly I think the place I want to see overall is Rovinj. do you think that it doesn’t worth to go to Istria. Is it better to go to several island than arrive until Istria?

    Of course Istria it is worth to visit !
    The trouble is you are flying to Dubrovnik and have 8 nights only. And you want to see Plitvicka Jezera..
    That’s why I suggest you to go to Zagreb instead to Istria.
    But if you want to fit all in one trip of 8 nights you perhaps can do Dubrovnik + one of the islands ( Korcula or Hvar) +  Split – + Plitvice + Istria (Rovinj, Pula)…

    I feel it is bit tight  with time

    Did you consider to do one trip this year around Croatian South and next trip around Croatian North?

    I’m planning my travel to Croatia next August during eight nights, beginning in Dubrovnik. At first I had decided to go without any reservations, but later I have thought that it would be better not to loose time looking for a “sobe” and go directly to my reservation. Then my questions are:

    1. Is it better to make the reservations first or not.

    2. In case you tell me to make the reservations first, wich are the best places to stay eight nights from Dubrovnik to Porec?, including also the National Park Plitvicka?

    Thank you very much. Any comment will be very helpful.

    I would suggest you to make reservation in advance if you want to save time once you arrive.
    Places to see : Dubrovnik-Mljet-Korcula-Hvar-Split-Trogir-Krka-Plitvice-Zagreb.

    BTW – Why you need to go to Porec?

    I would like to confirm whether we would be able to catch a ferry from Dubrovnik to Hvar (or vice versa) in May 2007.

    Thanks,
    Jeff

    I’m also finding it difficult to find out about events taking place in those ten days – does anyone know a good website about theatre or exhibitions?

    There is Dubrovnik Tourist Board site : http://web.tzdubrovnik.hr/events.shtml
    that has full info on events in Dubrovnik l (isted in PDF fomat).
    Unfortunately, this is for year 2006  :'(
    I guess they are still working on 2007 version.

    At the moment, I can only find Feb 2007 listings here : http://web.tzdubrovnik.hr/documenti/tzgrad_events_02_07.pdf

    Perhaps you can contact them and ask to email you listing for 2007 or at least April 2007?

    We will be travelling in Croatia in late June and are wanting to travel by ferry from Dubrovnik to Korcula on Monday 25th June, then from Korcula to Hvar on Wednesday 27th June, then from Hvar to Split on Friday 29th June 2007.

    Can we book our tickets now online for the ferries and which website do we book through?

    Also do you have a timetable for these ferries?

    Thank you for your assistance.

    Hello,
    Welcome to our travel forum!
    There is no online booking available for these ferries.
    You can check timetable at Jadrolinija website : http://www.jadrolinija.hr

    Well, I am not sure which one was hit.

    It is hard to work it out of the photo.

    Mali ?drelac is chanell between islands of  Ugljan and Pa?man which is entrance into Zadar Chanell.

    This particular bit of the Chanell , over which the bridge is erected, is about 20 meters wide.

    The Map/ Peljar says the sea depth is 4 meters, but to me, from the photo, it looks as it is only about 1 meter.

    Appartently, this was because of the low tide.

    Still, seems weird to me  ??? ???

    Mali Zdrelac chanell between Ugljan and Pasman is pretty, pretty narrow , look at the peljar map :

    If I was sailing there I would regularly hit that lighthouse 

    Yes, Mali Zdrelac seems very narrow. At least for me. Especially at this photo:

    Hi,

    My sister and I are coming to Croatia in May and are booked on a 7-day sailing trip. We have some time before and want to explore some of the National parks- from Zagreb- Spit. (As we arrive into Zagreb and our trip leaves from Split.) Which would you recommend? How accessible are they if we are using public transport?

    Also, we need to get a ferry from Split to Athens on the 13/05/. Are there any that go straight there, or do we need to change somewhere?

    Thanks, Sally

    Hi Sally,
    Welcome to find-croatia.com!
    As you are flying to Zagreb, I would recommend you to use your spare time to visit Plitvice Lakes National Park: https://www.find-croatia.com/plitvice/
    On your way to Split – by bus- stop at  Plitvice. Plitvice Lakes is a truly a magical place and you shouldn’t miss it.

    Re your trip to Greece – There are no direct ferry services between Croatia and Greece, but the journey can be made via Italy, see info in this topic https://ferryspots.com/croatia-greece-ferry/

    Hi
    Can you please tell me how far is the airport from the city center ?
    What are the approx cost from the airport to city center
    Thanks
    Ziggy

    Hi Ziggy,

    Pula Airport is 6 km of the centre of Pula town.

    Buses to town are irregular – take taxi instead.

    Cost : 150 kuna aprox.

    Good luck.

    Bus number 23 to Munti? / Valtura serves Pula airport.

    The Bus Link depart from Pula at Trg I. Istarske brigade/Piazza della I Brigata istriana.

    Thanks for your answer.
    Re:
    “There is a regular ferry that runs from Rijeka south to Dubrovnik which stops at Split so perhaps you can use this one ?”

    Can we use this ferry to sail to Lopud island?
    Thx :-)

    No, not that one.
    To sail to Lopud you have to take local ferry from Dubrovnik.

    We are planning a trip to Croatia in August this year .
    We are looking to travel along the Dalmatian coast between Split and Dubrovnik and explore some islands along this stretch of coast.
    We would like to know the best route to take and the best travel options there are between the islands and mainland along this stretch of coast. Can somebody help? 

    The main ferry company in Croatia is Jadrolinija.

    They operate services that run the length of the coast, including many of the islands.

    Jadrolinija’s website has scheduling information, prices and details of the ferries themselves: http://www.jadrolinija.hr

    There is a regular ferry that runs from Rijeka south to Dubrovnik which stops at Split so perhaps you can use this one ?

    Doeas anybody knows what is the nearest point in Croatia where we can take ferry to Silba island ( near Zadar?)
    Can we take our car there too? It seems Silba is no traffic island (?!)

    well, silba is, as far as i know, island where no traffic is allowed, therefore, i would sugegst you to leave you car somewhere on the mainland.

    zadar would be the nearest point to silba. alternatevly, perhaps, if you are comming from directions of istria / rijeka, you may consider ferry to silba via mali losinj.

    I would like to travel by bus from Pula to Motovun. Is it possible?

    Yes, it is possible.

    There is a bus that runs from Pula to Buzet at least twice a day and it stops at Motovun.
