I loved yesterday’s tweet by @Bitch_Maker
“Croatian official labels Aussies ‘Drunk and crazy'”. Hey @Croatia, we know.”
I am travelling between Venice and Montenegro in April. Has anyone suggestions on the best way to travel, air, train, auto or ferry?
I would check Venice to Belgrade flights.
From Belgrade there are daily flight to Podgorica and Tivat in Montenegro.
I know Jat, Belgrade has flights to Vienna.
Check Venice – Vienna – Belgrade – Tivat route.
Alternatives in April are slim. Car rental & driving perhaps…. ???
I cant imagine people who run hotel Pinija are not interested in this festival any more
“Vodstvo hotela Pinija, kao vlasnici prostora na kojem se održava festival, odlu?ili su da je financijski neisplativo iznajmljivanje lokacije za potrebe festivala.”

Does it have to be near Hvar town?
I like Grebisce kamp near Jelas, has nice sandy beach https://www.campingcroatia.net/campsite-grebisce-hvar-island/
Perhaps this ferry makes no profit in winter but this is important ferry line and we should keep it. Years ago this ferry stopped also in Zadar, not only in Split and timetable was better, we want this ferry back !!!!
Croatian State Agency for Coastal Lines and Maritime Traffic (Agencija za obalni linijski pomorski promet) has announced that Jadrolinija?s coastal ferry line from Rijeka to Dubrovnik and Bari is temporarily suspended for period from 05.02. to 28.02.2010 : https://www.find-croatia.com/temporary-suspension-of-coastal-ferry-line-from-rijeka-to-dubrovnik-and-bari/Anybody knows what’s going on?!?!? ???
I talked to friend of mine who regularly travels on that ferry from Split to Rijeka. She told me there is no official explanation about suspension, but people talk that government, who is subsidising this ferry line, actually run ot of money
probably is too late now. this offer was available 2 weeks ago :'(in reply to: Travel to/from Dubrovnik, Split, Greece and Venice #16916
he, he , if this actually goes ahead
ah, don’t be so negative
: : :in reply to: Travel to/from Dubrovnik, Split, Greece and Venice #16915
WOW! good news – new ferry route from Venice to Dubrovnik and Greece might be introduced:
I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this to go ahead
Nice cruise, nice places , Venice to Greece via Dubrovnik . I will do this tirp

Vlada je odlu?ila pomo?i posrnulom turoperatoru Adriatica.net, i to tako ?to je dopustila ulazak javnim tvrtkama u vlasni?ku strukturu te tvrtke
Telegraph writes :
Holiday Options, an operator that specialised in Mediterranean breaks, has gone into administration after 16 years.
They predict that “The travel industry is bracing itself for a flurry of failures over the coming weeks. Earlier this month Plimsoll Publishing, a leading travel industry analyst, predicted that nearly 300 tour operators could collapse or be taken over in the next year. “
Dubrovnik is for British Airways among top ten destinations for next year
It is my top ten for December
Does anybody have any other recommendaitons for slovenia? Besides the capital, are there other areas worth visiting?
The most popular Slovenian travel destination is its capital city, Ljubljana, which has a medieval cityscape consisting of charming castles, cathedrals, palaces and museums, but also good entertainment facilities and tourist services. Ljubljana is located near to Slovenia’s world-famous limestone caves such as Skocjan. Also Portoroz (Port of Roses) by the Adriatic Sea, or the country’s many charming ski resorts such as Kranjska Gora with its excellent outdoor sport facilities and other attractions such as Planica’s giant ski jumping hill and the rugged Triglav National Park are well worth seeing. Many visit also the famous castle of the lakeside town Bled, which is located close to the scenic Julian Alps of Slovenia.
Is Wizzair still flying to Split from London Luton?
No, they are not flying at the moment, shame. Try Flythomascook for flights Manchester – Split, Birmingham – Split, Norwich – Split, Bristol – Split, London Gatwick – Split. Also, Easyjet for flights London Gatwick – Split and Bristol – Split. Flybe flights from Birmingham to Split etc. There are lot of options, Wizzair is not the only one
At the moment?!?! Its now loooong time since they few in Split. At the moment easyjet is the best option if you fly to Split between April and October. In the winter..oh god..no cheap flights :(” title=”>:(” class=”bbcode_smiley” />
Ah, ah, wizzair is cheap indeed, but you have to book months in advance :'(
No more bad news about wizzair flights to zagreb?
Another article on the same theme is here
Attn Croatia Visitors Bureau
What time are the shops open on Sunday? Are any other attractions open on Sunday? What are your main atractions?
Lot of visitors attractions in Croatia are opened on Sundays in tourist season.
Main attractions in Croatia, hard to say, start from Top Ten Sights page :
Re: “and I’d quite like to do an overnight in Plitvice (assuming it’s not too difficult to get to on the bus”
As you are staying in Croatia only 9 days maybe Plitvice Lakes are not easy to reach from Dubrovnik.
From Dubrovnik to Plitvice will take you long time by bus.
My suggestion is to stick with coast around Dubrovnik including Islands Mljet and Korcula, visit Split, Trogir and Sibenik, perhaps day trip at Krka National Park.
This will be more than enough for 9 days. Visit Plitvice next time
Can you please tell me if there is ferry form dubrovnik to zadar in may 2008.
If so how long does it take and how much it costs.
Hi Peter, no ferries are sailing from Dubrovnik to Zadar – have a look at this thread :
How do the prices of eating out, food and drink compare with the UK?
What is good value still in Croatia?
Eating out is cheaper that in Europe, prices of food in shops are sometimes more costly than in Europe. I eat pizza and glass of beer for 40 kuna.
Can you tell me all the boats and their times between Dubrovnik and Split this summer ?
Hello Nigel, all ferries that sail between Dubrovnik and Split are at this page:
Ferry sails Wed, Thur, Sat and Sundays.
The journey takes about 8 hours as it stops at Mljet, Korcula and Hvar.

I’m planning a trip for a few days to Dubrovnik in late February. I can’t seem to find any tours opperating at this time (they all seems to start in April). I wanted to go on a Day Trip to one of the Islands, and also a Day Trip into Montenegro.
Can anyone offer any suggestions (e.g. tour operators, or other things to do)? I will be exploring the Old Town.
To go to Islands around Dubrovnik, take any ferry that sails on the day. You don’t need to book with tour operator. It is also cheaper.
For Montenegro trip, check Atlas travel agent at Pile (central Part of Dubrovnik) http://www.atlas-croatia.com. They do daily trips to Montenegro. Also, check with local taxi drivers. They might offer you good price in low season.
BTW – where about in Montenegro would you like to go?
I would love some help and suggestions on the following:
Late Oct.2008….I need to get from Croatia to Italy…then to Rome
What is the best Port to leave from….what is the best Italian Port to arrive in
How long is the ferry trip.
It really depend where about in Croatia you will be at the time of your departure.
You can take Dubrovnik to Bari ferry, or Split to Ancona one.
As Rome is in south of Italy, these two ferries are better option then ferries that sail to north Italy ( like Venice)
Ferries usually sail overnight, like leaving late night from Croatia and arriving early morning in Italy.
Once there, take bus to Rome.
It will be another 4 hours by bus.
For me the best is friendly people, the worst is prejudice.
What would be the best island and are there families there with room accomodations?.
Also, doctors and dentists on the islands.
There are families with rooms to let at every island where local people live.
Lerger islands have resident doctors and dentists, while smaller ones have visiting doctors.
In case of emergency, all islands are connected with emergency jet service.
Great news indeed

Zagreb :-* the hippiest place in all of Croatia :-*
Bus to Rijeka or Zadar and then ferry or Ferry to Rijeka or Zadar and then ferry to Pag.
Brijuni are good to visit as you will be in Istria, very much up market and superficial with accent on glamour which is kitch but some people love it. You can try to overnight at Brijuni in your sleeping bag but if you put tent somebody will notice so better don’t.
Paypal I guess.
At the moment we are looking at Rovinj, any thoughts on this as a choice?
Rovinj is beautiful place. You can’t go wrong with it
If you want to go straight from Dubrovnik to Hvar, consider taking bus to Split, get off at Drvenik and take ferry to Sucuraj on Hvar. From Sucuraj, take bus to Hvar town.
God this sounds complicated :
And if there is no long que for luggage collecton or passport control
This video is ok nothing wrong with it just one more promotional clip.
I plan to visit Zrmanja during next summer it seems such a nice river
500 people on bikes? sounds terrifying 😮
Yeah sunsets can be boring .
They are everywhere on turist pictures.
Thanks Now I’m not sure where to go all places looks wonderful :
Here is photo of these large rocks near Makarska:
It seems these rocks are going to be moved in the sea to help to save pebbles from winds and tides.
Sounds confusing for me.
You can use late night bus to travel to Korcula from Split late at night ( around midnight) it arrives in Korcula following morning at 6 .
This bus leaves Zagreb at around 7 pm.
This is always good to know if you miss all other ferry connections .
Another article about same subject is here:
Does anyone know if there is a ferry from the Split area to the Porec area? Or any suggestions on the best way to get there?
As far as I knowm there are no ferries that sail from Split to Istria.

Reading this at your blog:
IMHO air quality data for Dalmatia are not updated as the air there is 100% perfect, so no need for data
Ha ha this is good point.
Air in Dalmatia is perffetto, signori, perffetto :-*
i’m planning a holiday with some friends in croatia. we would like to hire kayaks for around 4 days to explore the islands. being highly experienced, we dont want to take a tour. is there anywhere in dubrovnik to hire these or would we be better catching a ferry to the islands and hiring there.
any help much appreciated
There are couple of companies that do kayaking around dubrovnik, one of them is Adriatic Sea Kayaking – Specialist in Sea Kayaking Excursions: http://www.adriatic-sea-kayak.com/. Try to contact them to see about hiring a kayak.
As far as Island are concerned, it is possible to hire a kayak at I would say most of the islands ( like at Korcula : https://www.korculainfo.com/adverts/canoeing/canoeing.htm ) around Dubrovnik, inclusive of Mljet ( the National Park) too.
Also, please, what is the best route to reach Buje from Trieste?
At Trieste Coach Station, there are bus and coach connections to Koper, Buje and further, so you can take one of these buses to come to Buje.
Please, is it possible to reach Groznjan by any public transport?
I am trying to work out this, without any success
As far as I know, there are not buses or any other public transport to Groznjan.
Although, if you take bus from Buzet to Buje ( or Buje-Buzet ), driver will stop for you at the point nearest to
Groznjan , which is about 3 km from the town, so you can walk there from that point.
Also, you can take bicycle in the bus ( they transport bikes fro free) and then cycle to Groznjan.
