Critique my 3 week Balkans Itinerary + Budget

Jump to last reply

I was wondering how much I would be expecting to spend? I have about $1300 budgeted for the main flight. From what I've looked at traveling costs, accommodation and food doesn't seem expensive. Is about $2200 fine? I'd be staying at hostels.

I know that people usually drive because public transportation in the Balkans is unreliable, but I'm trying my best to see if we can just stick to trains, buses and planes.

Flight to Ljubljana on August 7th

1) Ljubljana 4 nights (8-11)
- Arrive afternoon
- 1 day in Ljubljana
- 1 day trip to Lake Bled via a train to Kranj and bus to Bled
- 1 day Predjama Castle via train and taxi (1.5 hours) from Ljubljana

2) Zagreb 2 nights (12-13)
- train 2.5 hours directly from Ljubljana
- 1.5 days exploring Zagreb

3) Pula 3 nights (14-16)
- flight from Zagreb
- spend 2.5 days in Pula

4) Zadar 2 nights (17-18)
- will be arriving in Zadar early morning (7:00 am) if we hopefully get that flight
- next day trip to Plitvice
* how can we do this? Do we have to rent a car because I can't seem to find any buses that will allow us to do it.

5) Split 3 nights (19-21)
- maybe an island day trip

6) Dubrovnik 2 nights (22-23)
- 5 hour bus ride from Split to Dubrovnik with an evening there
- 1 day to explore Dubrovnik

7) Budva 2 nights (24-25)
- ~3 hour bus ride
- 1 whole day in Budva

8) Belgrade 4 nights (26-29)
- bus to Tivat from Budva, flight from Tivat to Belgrade
- 3 days in Belgrade

Flight home on August 30th
