Help with a trip to Croatia

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm planning the following:

1. Arrive late one Sat. evening in Zagreb. Overnight in Zagreb.
2. Sunday morning, leave for Split via Plitvice Lakes.
3. Monday afternoon, Split to Dubrovnik by bus.
4. Tuesday: Dubrovnik.
5. Wednesday: Early flight for Zagreb with long layover before flying to London.

These are the questions.

A. I'm wondering if there could be potential problems, especially when it comes to taking buses, as I'll be relying on them. Is there something I should watch out for?

B. Are these bus schedules current? http://www.akz.hr/

C. I've heard that Plitvice Lakes is a small stop. Since I need to continue to Split at this stop, is there anything I should watch out -- is this route busy on a Sunday? It'll not be good if I'm stuck there, and I've read that the buses can get full.

D. The luggage question. I'll stopping in London first and I'll have to too much to carry with me to Croatia. I'm considering the following. Is there something I've missed? Which option is the best?

a. Leave the luggage at Heathrow and retrieve when I'm back. Potential problem: 3 hours between landing and my connecting flight to the USA, and I need to pass through immigration to retrieve my bags. Also the fee is 8.50 pounds per day per bag.

b. Leave the luggage in Zagreb, possibly with my hotel or at the bus or train station (is this possible -- it seems like there are lockers?). Downside to this: What if something happens to my Dubrovnik to Zagreb flight, for example, it gets canceled, and I get routed to something else that doesn't pass though Zagreb? (This, by the way, is the option I'm leaning towards.)

c. Carry all my bags with me. It's the safest option. But then, where do I leave the luggage at Plitvice Lakes? It seems like there's left luggage service near the ticket counter. Does someone know for sure?

Thanks!
