Packing for Croatia Sept-Oct - Just getting started

Jump to last reply

Oh…. my goodness, where to start here?
I am JUST starting to think about packing for a 3-week trip to Croatia, starting in Dubrovnik Sept 22, then to Hvar, then Trogir, Plitvice Lakes, and on, ending in Zagreb only because our flight leaves from there Oct 11 or so. We have not yet secured accommodations for anything after Hvar…

I don't know where to start… I have a post "packing for Croatia" started, but I was away (just returned home last night after being gone all summer) and did not have Internet access for the past week, so my last post has probably gone a little too cold and that's why I'm starting a new one.

I know it's important to PACK LIGHT, and I want to try to do this for the first time in my life.

I am not sure (and I've been trying different shoes and pants, etc) on what kind of footwear would be best as well as clothing.

Is it humid in Croatia this time of year? Do I not need rain gear? Is a light cotton jacket a good idea? I found a really cute on at TJ MAXX with cargo pockets that I'd love to bring - or would a fleece be a more practical thing?

I don't know if we are going to be taking any flights in-between islands (probably not), or boats, or trains (probably trains) on this trip, but I understand that suitcase size is important, as well as the weight of it.

I want to be really smart and bring the best suitcase daypack and carry on (is that three things I need to manage? Maybe the day pack and carry on is one and the same.. yes…) I can.

Is there a size or weight restriction on any of this as far as the trains, etc go? That should be my first quest I am able to accomplish.

If anyone has sources for these things, please let me know and I will order whatever has been tried and true. I am serious about this packing and can use all the help I can get!

Thank you!

PS we plan to do a lot of day trips, walking around, etc. I am not sure as to the protocol there. Do people wear shorts or more capris? Are shorts not really a good idea? (long shorts.. not short shorts)
What about sundresses or dresses per se? OK if they're sleeveless? I am sure I would need to "cover the shoulders" should we tour certain places, and I will be prepared for that. But is it more appropriate to bring a dress that hits below the knee rather than above the knee? Are they stylish or not so there? Is there air conditioning pretty much all over as well as in restaurants (i.e., do they tend to be freezing cold inside?) or is it generally warm and open air?

This is late Sept/early October…

Thanks again for your help. Fodors is my bible!
