Thanks for the info pjs. I have e-mailed Knezevic a few times, too, with no response. I was also looking into the Plitvice Hotel, but the website says no rooms available for March which seems odd. TC Marko looks nice and their prices seems good, will have to check it out. Hope your planning is coming along well!

We stayed a month in Dubrovnik, but I am not sure that you need to stay 5 nights there on your short trip.

We loved bay of Kotor and Plitvice, so glad to see them in your itinerary and I hope you can time your Korcula experience with the sword dance which is special.We drove from Trogir to Plitvice in a small Rv...no problem, but then the weather was great for us.

We thought Rovinj was absolutely one of the highlights of Croatia, so it is a shame that you are missing it. When we left Plitvice we drove to Rovinj as we were much more interested in it and Istria than Sarajevo and were headed up to Lake Bled ( which is also spectacular).

The drive from Dubrovnik to Split on the coast was magnificent in September, so another highlight, but I am not sure what your weather will be like in March.

We stayed near Trogir on the water for a week and saw a lot of Split, but did not care for it and agree that the highlights can be seen in just hours ( the palace and harbor). Hvar is also nice, but not sure where you would fit it in.

I hope the weather is nice in Plitvice as it is great for hiking and one of the prettiest parks around ( reminded me of some of the great ones in the U.S.). It will be miserable in rain though as will the driving, so keep that in mind ( maybe have tentative plans to leave early).

We found Kotor easy as a day trip. We were open to staying longer, but felt that was enough for us. It is beautiful, but a little funky. It still feels like a communist country, where as Croatia does not.

You should have no problems booking anything on the spot ( lodging) at that time of year. We booked a few things on the spot in early September with no problems.

Amanda - Nice to hear from someone that has been to Sarajevo. We are very interested in the history so are excited for that portion of the trip.

WTnow - I very much enjoyed your report on Croatia. We thought 5 nights in Dubrovnik might be a bit much, but it's really only two fulls days when you factor in the night of arrival, day trip to Montenegro, and travel day back from Bosnia.

If we have time, we might take a detour to Trogir on the way to Plitvice. Unfortunately we are round trip to/from Dubrovnik so that's why we are traveling in a circle (and skipping Istria).

We know the weather can be questionable in March so we are prepared to be flexible but hoping for the best!
