Croatia for a month in May 2013!

Jump to last reply

Hi - my wife and I will be taking a 6 month journey across SE Asia and making our back west to Europe. We plan on taking a train from Vienna to Zagreb and then doing this list of places in Croatia for an entire month. We are looking for simple things, like good "not so crowded" beaches, good local cuisine, and a chilled, laid back atmosphere. We live in the rain/gloom capital (Seattle) and just want to get plenty of sun rays on Croatia's coast. It's our first time visit to Croatia.

From the research I've gathered online, it looks like buses and ferries are abundant in May so we shouldn't need to rent a car. Few questions, is English spoken at most of the places we are visiting?

Will the beaches and sea be warm enough in May for swimming, snorkeling?

1) Zagreb - 4 days
2) Plitvice - 1 day and overnight stay
3) Bus to Zadar or Sibenik (can't decide which one) - 4 days
4) Bus to Split - 3 days
5) Ferry to Vis - 3 days
6) Ferry to Hvar Island - 4 days
7) Ferry back to Split, stay overnight
8) Bus to Dubrovnik - 5 days
9) Ferry to Korcula - 3 days
10) Ferry to Mljet Island - 2 days
11) Ferry to Dubrovnik for a few days before ferry to Bari, Italy

Is there a way to skip Italy entirely and get to Corfu, Greece?
