Croatia: Zagreb to Dubrovnik HELP

Jump to last reply

Hi All,

Hubby & I ‘ve booked flight into Zagreb (end of September) and out of Dubrovnik (mid-October). Seek tips to optimize our budget holiday: thinking a full day in Plitvice Lakes Park, before heading to the coast to exploring Zadar, Sibenik, Trogir, Split before finishing in Dubrovnik. Tempted to visit Kotor and/or Budva.

FWIW, love the arts, architecture, museums, nature, local markets/picnics, blending in; would love to try kayaking in calm waters; dislike crowds, shopping, pools, sunbathing, clubbing, and commuting.

Tentative Itinerary, with overnights in Zagreb (2-3), Plitivice (2), Zadar (2), Trogir (1?), Split (3 or 4) Dubrovnik (5)

Tues day1: Zagreb afternoon arrival. Museum of Naïf Art. (Overnight in Zagreb hostel 2 or 3 nights)

Wed day2: Zagreb Historic Centre, opera/ballet in evening

Thur day3: Another day in Zagreb? is cemetery worth the visit?

Fri day4: Depart for Plitvice Lakes, possibly 2 hrs with rental car. (Plitvice, check-in)

Saturday5: Plitvice Lakes & National Park: am hike; pm swim 

Sun day6: Depart for Zadar early (1.5 hr drive?) museum visits, check-in & sunset.

Monday7: Visit medieval Sibenik & Cathedral, raptor center (how long in car?)

Tuesday 8: Leave Zadar for Primoshen via ferry? beach then on to Split? or Trogir?.

halfway point -- 8 days left


Wed day 9: Trogir. (drop car, Split check-in 3 nights)

Thursday10: Explore Split: Diocletan Place, Rector’s Palace Split. beach/island. 

Fri day11: Split Ferry to Brac (Zlatni Rat) 

Saturday12: (Nat’l Holiday) ferry to Dubrovnik? (Dubrovnik check-in, 5 nights in same place)

Sun day13: Explore Dubrovnik: walk ramparts, museums. 

Mon day14: Day out of Dubrovnik:Mostor / Budva, visit Bond’s casino?

Tues day15: Dubrovnik visiting Presqu’il de peljesac or Ston salt museum?

Wed day16: Last day. (Dubrovnik, fly home tomorrow morning)

1- What to modify, add / delete?
2- Transportation is concern, when to take ferry or bus. For which portion(s) of our trip, if any, is auto rental recommended? If, then where/when to pickup/dropoff the vehicule?
3- Where when best to visit Trogir? and using which mode of transport?
4- Where to stay overnight inexpensively so we aren’t always moving around/checking-in. ie Dubrovnik, Lupad, Sipan, Slano or Cavat. Think will lenjoy the novelty of ferry rides.

Thanks in advance!
