    Does Jadrolinija’s coastal ferry from Rijeka to Dubrovnik (and further to Bari) stop at Mljet? The timetable (https://www.find-croatia.com/ferries-croatia/) doesn’t have any imformation about Mljet, but in the blog it says so: “According to Jutarnji.hr , Jadrolinija’s Coastal Ferries that connect Rijeka with Dubrovnik  via Split, Hvar, Korcula and Mljet , proceeding further to Bari in Italy, will sail from June to October only.” (https://www.find-croatia.com/jadrolinijas-coastal-ferries-will-sail-from-june-to-october-only/)
    Or is there another way to get from Mljet to Split in July, maybe on the 16th or 17th of July?

    If the travel cost to Croatia (by car) keeps increasing, I think the only ?public transport? which will increase if the all inclusive flights to turkey.

    Only time will tell.
    Let’s come back to this topic in few years time to see how tourism and travelling changed.
    We may be surprised


    Mario
    Spectator

    I believe future of tourism and travelling in general is in public transport.

    Therefore, the cost of roads for private cars is not something which I would consider as important in this context. There are trains and buses from Germany to Croatia, which one can use if can’t pay for motorways.

    30 or 25 kuna for one way for catamaran or ferry is price which is unsustainable in long run and I am looking foward for introduction of real, cost based fares for visitors and tourists.

    Tourist were visiting islands long before these prices where introduced and will continue to visit I have no doubt about this.

    Look at this article: http://www.novilist.hr/2010/02/04/loncar-3A-katamaranske-linije-i-.aspx

    “…predsjednik uprave Slavko Lon?ar, koji u odgovoru na tra?enje da se subvencioniraju karte za katamaran samo oto?anima, a ne svim putnicima kako je to bilo do sada, navodi:

    ? Mislim da ?e se i?i u tom pravcu, jer ?e sredstava za subvencije u prora?unu biti sve manje, ne samo zbog krize, ve? je tendencija da se pla?a tr?na cijena. Dakle, vinjete, to?nije magnetske kartice koje bi u budu?nosti trebale imati i fotografiju korisnika, bile bi izdavane samo osobama sa stalnim prebivali?tem na otoku i njime bi se ostvarile pogodnosti kod kupnje karata, kako za trajekt tako i za katamarane i brodske veze. Takva kartica bi osigurala i to?nu evidenciju putovanja oto?ana, navodi predsjednik uprave Jadrolinije dr. sc. Slavko Lon?ar…”

    I dont think there would be anybody on the ferries in that case, which would be tough for the the islands and turism.

    In my opinion ferry tickets should be so cheap (subsidised) for people who live permanently on the islands. Tourists and visitors should pay market prices, not subsidised prices.


    Mario
    Spectator

    I am sure ferries are run with loses, but instead to suspend ferries, why not introduce fares that are meaningfull, instead of peanuts. 25 or 30 kuna for one way from Hvar to Split is rediculous fare. at least 150 kuna one way is normal price.


    Mario
    Spectator

    I think it will go ahead. This ferry is already passing by on 15 miles fro Dubrovnik and it will be no much more expensive to stop in Dubrovnik, take passengers and carry on further to or from Venice and Greece. Dubrovnik was always before stop on this route.

    Guys from Croatian Villas found these prices on Easyjet:

    For example, a March return trip to Dubrovnik from London is currently on sale for just ?59.08, while an April visit to Split will set tourists back only ?46.20 for travel as things stand.

    In the summer, a similar journey to Dubrovnik can be found for ?52.87 in June and, once more, a Split trip retails at ?46.20 during the sale.

    Your route is possible, good choice, lot of people do this route.

    The only thing is, you have to go to Vis from Split as there is no any connection to this island from anywhere else.

    There is now ferry connection between Vis and Hvar.

    All Croatian Islands are here:

    Hotel company Suncani Hvar chief Jacques Bourgeois has been dismissed after four years in his position.

    The daily Slobodna Dalmacija has reported that Bourgeois was dismissed because of extremely bad business results.

    According to the daily, the company?s supervisory board will officially confirm the news today (Fri). Bourgeois will be succeeded by Miro Dincic from Zagreb, who has international experience in tourism.

    Suncani Hvar is majority owned by the Orco Property Group. Dincic was reportedly once an Orco employee but left the company after a disagreement with company management on Hvar Island.

    Suncani Hvar has had financial problems for some time and suffered a big decline in overnights and turnover this year. (www.croatiantimes.com)

    Looking at the Jadrolinija website, the ferry only goes south twice a week, not on the days we want to travel. Is there any other way to get by boat from Split to Dubrovnik around Sept 12? Perhaps from an island?
    Can you take day trips to Hvar and Korcula from Split and still return to Split in the evening?

    Take bus to Split from Rijeka and then ferries around the islands.
    Day trips are also possible from Split to islands.

    i have another question, are the islands in the north better than the south ? as im flying to pula do u think it is better to get a boat to zadar then travel down te islands down there rather staying in the north ?
    whats the difference between the two, i dont mind taking the boat down as long as it will be a better experience

    Islands are similar north and south. It is peronal preference. You might as well stay in the vicinity to avoid travelling, you will still have nice time……

    What ferry service is available in September from Korcula to Dubrovnik?
    We are  specifically interested in high speed ferry service and ideally would like to go from Korcula to Mijet and  then on to Dubrovnik.  From the schedule available on the internet it appears, with the exception of the car ferries,  service between Korcula and Dubrovnik is discontinued on August 31.  Is the latter accurate or is there service during September and if so what are the scheduled days and time.

    Yes, fast ferries from Dubrovnik to Korcula are not sailing in September. To Mljet you have Nona Ana ferry https://www.korculainfo.com/ferries/catamaran-dubrovnik-mljet-korcula-lastovo.htm

    I arrive on 23rd June.

    Will the bus still be running at these times please as the other fares are in excess of ?60 return.

    It is very likely you will have bus from Airport to Dubrovnik, as Croatia Airlines flight from Zagreb is arriving at 22:05 . Buses always meet their flights

    Krk is large island, very close to the mainland. It has bridge to mainland which is easy to travel.
    Hotels are listed at this link which offers online booking http://www.booking.com/region/hr/krk.html?aid=314174
    You can take ferry to other islands like Cres, Losinj or Rab, it is hard to reccomend which one, as all of them have something specific,  check introductions for each to make your decision. I think it is better for you to stay up north as going down to Hvar is too far from Venice. My favorite place on Krk is Glavotok, small place but has beautiful XIV century Franciscan church and monastery. Also go to Pag to taste paski sir (pag cheese). If you have your own car it you can visit lot of places!

    I assume a bus from Split to Zadar would be the best way to get there.
    Is the bus stop in Zadar near the port/ferry or do I need to allow more time for that?
    I assume you can only buy tickets at the port so how long before departure do you need to be at the port?
    I’m trying to determine how long I would need to allow to get to the ferry on time. I expect it might mean a 7am bus from Split.
    Many thanks in advance for your advice.

    Yes, bus is a good way, lot of buses go up and down the coast.

    Bus station in Split is very near the ferry port, see map here:

    https://www.find-croatia.com/map-split-city-bus-transport/

    In Zadar is bit futher, but not very far. Give 1/2 hour for that max.
    Buses to Zadar Info and links are here https://www.find-croatia.com/zadar/buses-zadar.php

    You can but ferry ticket in advance from here:
    http://www.traghettionline.net/eng/index.asp?partner=find-croatia

    My wife and I are holidaying in Dalmatia for 12 days in September. We finish a cruise in Split on early 27th (possibly late 26th but unlikely) and are wanting to cross to Italy. Our investigation suggests the only ferry route is Split – Ancona and none (Jadrolinija, Blue Ferries or SNAV) seem to depart on the Saturday (27th) so we have to wait until Sunday when there is a choice of 2, both sailing at 9pm. Are there any other ferries or other opportunities (other destinations in Italy) to cross to Italy before the Sunday night ferry? Ferries also travel to Pescara but it appears not at that time of year? Any other suggestions?

    You can go to Zadar and take ferry to Ancona :
    ZADAR 27.09.2008 12:00 ANCONA 27.09.2008 18:00

    Or if you want to go down to Dubrovnik,  there is ferry from Dubrovnik to Bari : DUBROVNIK 27.09.2008 16:00 BARI 27.09.2008 22:00

    I don’t think you will find anything else from Split except flight from Split (via Zagreb) to Rome. Croatia Airlines, depart Split 1pm arrival Rome 5pm.

    My girlfriend and I are arriving in Dubrovnik by car ferry in August and plan to spend two weeks driving up the Croatian coast, camping along the way. So if anyone can answer any of the following questions for me, I’d be very grateful.

    What the best route? Where can’t we miss? How should we see the islands? Should we take our car onto the islands or just go for the day on foot? Where should we avoid?

    Drive from Dubrovnik to Prapratno on Peljesac, take ferry from there to Sobra on Mljet Island.
    Drive from Prapratno to Orebic, take ferry from there to visit Korcula Island.
    From Korcula take ferry to Hvar (Stari Grad) or ferry to Drvenik and from there ferry to Sucuraj (Hvar Island)
    From Hvar take ferry to Split and drive to Trogir, Krka National Park and Sibenik.
    Further up the coast is Zadar – visit Kornati Islands National Park – don’t take car for islands around Zadar, lot of them are car-free zones. Take day trips for these.
    Further up the coast you can visit Losinj, Cres, Rab and Krk islands. Krk has a bridge, so no ferry needed.Once you finish with islands, drive/ferry to Rijeka and accross the Slovenia border to Austria or Italy.

    My girlfriend and I are thinking of booking a “navigator cruise” with this tour operator, does anyone know if they’re any good or if there is something better?

    I never heard of this company, but I am not the one who would be interested in this type of holiday anyway, so don’t judge it on this fact.
    I know that all sailing boats of this type in Croatia are safe and crew members are well trained so I expect this boat is of the same quality.
    Try to talk to them to get the impression and ask them for some references from previous guests as well as name of the boat/ship to check further…

    Is there a brochure with details of all small (50 pitches of less) camps in Croatia?

    Hi Anita, as far as I know, there is no listings for small capsites available. This discussion : https://www.find-croatia.com/forum/index.php?topic=1205.0 might help you a bit

    A group of 34 people are travelling to Split from UK in Sept .
    Please advise best way to travel between Split and Biograd, train, bus or ferry?
    Where can we find details such as timetables and prices?

    There is no train or ferry between Split and Biograd. The only transport is by road, by bus.
    Buses go from Split to Biograd regularly, almost every hour, sometimes more often, but you might have problem finding places on one bus for 34 people. Perhaps you can get private transfer for your group if you all want to be on the same bus?

    Bus station in Split is
    http://www.ak-split.hr/EN/vozni.red/VozniRedOdlazaka.aspx
    where you can find bus timetables.
    September is not listed yet, but bus timetable will be similar as now.

    London to Split one way is ?59 in August on easyjet, plus another 150 Kuna per person on bus from Split to Dubrovnik plus 4 hours bus ride along the cost. Split is nice place to visit, but if you want Dubrovnik only, then fly there.

    Can anyone recommend campsites for a week in Croatia in August?
    We have VW camper, want scenery culture and nightlife, cycling , local wines and cuisine.
    thanks 

    Week camping in Croatia, difficult question, maybe you stick with Dubrovnik as you initially asked  One week is not a long time

    Can anyone recommend a cheap hotel in Zagreb?

    Cheap – how cheap?
    Hotels in  Zagreb are quite expensive , the cheapest would be http://www.hotel-central.hr and http://www.hup-zagreb.hr.

    Perhaps you can consider hostel-type accomodation or private rooms?

    Doli (Jadranska Magistrala) is a place where Peljesac Peninsula meets Croatian mainland.

    That is near Ston at Peljesac, about 3 km away

    you don’t need to buy your ticket in advance if you are going to be foot passenger only.
    you can buy it on the spot, depending what are your travel  plans.
    if you need cabin, or you have a car then , yes, buy ticket.

    You can always go to Plitvice for two-day/ weekend trip from South Dalmatia.
    Lot of buses are running from the coast toward Zagreb and on their way they stop at Plitvice.

    I would budget a double room for about 100 kuna per night, average, for long term let.
    This would be minimum price.

    This is a good info about car rental in Croatia, green card and crossing the borders:

    Question:
    ? We plan to visit Croatia and Montenegro next summer. We will hire a car at Dubrovnik and, after spending a week in Croatia, drive to Montenegro for another week. I’ve heard that there can be issues with insurance at the border when entering Montenegro. Also, what are driving conditions like in Montenegro? There are four of us with luggage. Will hiring a large car (Skoda Octavia estate) be OK?

    Answer:
    Before independence, Serbia and Montenegro was one of the countries in Europe which required drivers to produce a Green Card. This card forms the basis of a system designed to make driving across borders much smoother. A Green Card offers no insurance cover but is proof that the minimum legal requirements for third party liability insurance are covered by the driver’s own motor policy. Your insurance company should be able to provide you with this card without charge. Recent multi-lateral guarantees between EU countries have removed the need for a Green Card within the EU. However, since independence, Montenegro has not met the requirements that allow Green Cards to be recognised. You will need to arrange cover at the border which will cost ?60.

    Will be traveling the coast the last week in March. Would like to visit islands but understand it is early in the season. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thinking about Split to Brac.  1 night on island. Need ferry skeds,etc.
    Thanks, Randy

    It is easy to reach Brac from Split – there are ferries sailing almost around the clock. No worries :-)

    I want to visit veli losinj while in Croatia next month. What are my choices for ferry service to the island? I will be spending the majority of my time in Dubrovnik.

    Losinj is quite far from Dubrovnik.
    Are you sure you want to go there?
    If yes, than take jadrolinija.hr ferry to Rijeka and then ferry to Losinj. Long sail though..

    Biokovo is interesting mountain to see all sorts of birds and animals. It is not too far from Kvarner , perhaps you can consider it. https://www.find-croatia.com/natureparks-croatia/biokovo.htm
    It is easy to reach by bus from Makarska.
    Another interesting areas is Vranjsko Jezero and  Kopacki Rit Nature parks.
    Especially if you like bird watching.
    Links and short intros you can find here: https://www.find-croatia.com/natureparks-croatia/index.htm
    Vranjsko Jezero is on the coast, so not too far from Velebit and Losinj, Kopacki Rit is bit further up in Easter Slavonia, maybe it is too far for you to go if you have 2 weeks only.
    Before you go contact peole in Parks and Sanctuaries to avoid possible dissapointments
    Best wishes to you , I like to hear from people that are nature lovers  :-*

    Ferries from Dubrovnik to Rijeka i October will not be as frequent as in July / August, usually ferries sail 2-3 times a week .
    You might end up forced to take bus.
    Check later with Jadrolinija site, they are always slow in publishing their timetables.

    I see no reason for refusing visa to somebody who would like to stay in campsite instead of hotel or apartment.

    So my answer would be YES, campsite where you will stay can send you letter of confirmation to obtain that visa.

    Can you please provide us with this information?

    My favorite is Bajadera Chocolate – Bajadera is a dessert of the highest quality, combining central European confectionery artistry and luxurious oriental flavor. Bajadera is a queen among desserts, with the distinctive flavor of fine nougat enriched with almonds. For generations of customers, Bajadera has been the symbol of the ultimate dessert. We are proud to say that Bajadera was the first sweet confection to receive the designation ?Original Croatian? from the Croatian Chamber of Commerce. Its uniqueness is also recognized by numerous customers in many countries.

    And , of course,KIKI!!!!

    ls11.gif Enjoy KI-KI everywhere! KI-KI is distinguished from other caramels on the market by its high quality, assorted flavors, pocket-size to family-size packages, attractive design, recognized logotype and clown mascot. The most popular product in this line is the KI-KI fruit caramel, which has been manufactured since the beginning of the last century, the favorite caramel of generations of customers.

    Hi Meeee, I personally have no experience with wild camping but I always see people wild camping around our coast.

    It is not legal but I believe you will be ok if you don’t upset locals. Very important is that you don’t do some kind of camp fire or anything to do with fire as people will get very upset because of danger.

    Yes Rijeka ariport is the one that is at north end of Krk. This is same airport.

    Ferries are very reliable and there are lot of them sailing up and down and between the islands.

    Ivica Racan was cool guy I remember him when he left Milosevic’s komunists on 14th Congress of Savez Komunista Jugoslavije back in January 1990. He was head of Croat delegation when they left together with Slovenes. Bravo Ivica  :-*

    This is clip from that time http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Qf8Y93nmfc

    This clip is good about life of Ivica Racan  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AipHGxj5_5M

    English language is very common, you should have no problems with communication

    Well this is personal choice really. If you like walking i would suggest you to simply walk.
    There are good maps displayed around the park and paths are well marked ( as far as I remember)
    You may also consider hiring a bicycle

    Morning,

    I am having difficulty finding timetables on bus and ferry services from Dubrovnik to Korcula. As I am booking accommodation in both locations I was hoping to have definate information on the services provided. We will be arriving in Dubrovnik on the 14th September 2007 and were hoping to travel to Korcula dependent on bus or ferry availability that day. We will, then be returning to Dubrovnik from Korcula on Tuesday 18th September 2007.

    Can you please shed some light on whether these dates suit bus or ferry timetables or on which days travel is available.

    Much appreciated

    Helen G.

    There is a daily bus that leaves Dubrovnik at 15.00 and arrives in Korcula at 18.30.
    For travel from Korcula to Dubrovnik, take daily bus that leaves at 6.45 and arrives in Dubrovnik at 9.30.

    what is the best way to travel between Spit and Venice?

    This is difficult one.
    I would personally take ferry Split – Rijeka.
    From Rijeka, I would use bus to go to Venice ( via Trieste):

    I am going to be in Croatia over the Easter Holidays this year and I was wondering what the laws were on camping.

    I was planning on treking from Dubrovnik and visiting some of the islands and then going back onto mainland to go into the national park. 

    Would I be able to camp at this time. 

    If there are no campsites in the area is it alright to camp in the hills or by the sea?

    Have a look at this page : https://www.find-croatia.com/camping-croatia/

    I hope this answers your question.

    Generally, you are not allowed to camp out of designated areas.

    However, if you ask the owner of the field to overnight in his/her field, you are on the safe side.

    Hi. I will be over there in mid July. Does anyone know of any tours that do some island hopping? I’ve been looking and i can’t seem to find any. I don’t really care which islands (bit od partying and sun is all i ask for- and great food).
    thanks in advance

    matt

    Look at http://www.jadrolinija.hr ferries site for island hopping .
    For parties – go to Hvar in Carpe Diem club.
