Croatia and Slovenia by public transport - can it be done?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I are planning a trip to Croatia and Slovenia, 12 nights in toto. We are 'older' and would prefer not to drive. We are unlikely to have the opportunity to return.
Itinerary is almost finalised:
Fly in to Dubrovnik - 3 n
Korcula (by bus from Dub) - 2n
Ferry to Split (arr 8.30am) for morning (Diocletian Palace)
Split - Trogir (30 mins by bus) - 2 n
Trogir to Plitvice NP (1n) via Zadar for a few hours hopefully
Half afternoon and half next morning at Plitvice.
Plitvice to Bled (2n) via Ljubljana (also for a few hours)
Bled to Kranjska Gora (2n) to walk in the Julian Alps
KG to Ljubljana airport - evening departure to Helsinki.
We want to see as much of the Dalmation coast as poss hence travelling to Plitvice via Zadar.
We could stay one night in Trogir, then one in Zadar rather than 2 in Trogir, but we're hoping to avoid "one night stands" wherever possible.
The main questions:
1.Can this be done without hiring a car and also without spending twice as long on a bus as driving would take? I think this applies mainly to the Zadar-Plitvice leg and esp to the Plitvice-Ljubljana leg? I am having great difficulty finding a satisfactory way of travelling for these two bits. We'd prefer not to go to Zagreb (mainly to save time).
2. Do we have sufficient time to see Zadar enroute to Plitvice and then have enough time left to do Plitvice justice and still make it to Bled (via Ljubljana)the next day.
3. Should we spend 1 night each in Trogir and Zadar rather than 2 nights in Trogir, so that we reach Plitvice earlier?
4. Can luggage be stored safely at bus stations in Split and Zadar?

Thank you.
