I would love some feed back on my trip to Croatia. We are going for two weeks, at some point we are going from Split to Plitvice, ground transportation, don’t know yet where to stay and how long and from there going north to lLjubliana. We then go to Brussels and are looking for best way from here or from Zagreb… train ?? We love some ideas !!!! Going the last week of September.

It's not really possible to offer feedback based on your very scant description of your itinerary.

Can you provide more details? Where are you flying into and out of, and where do you plan to go besides Split, Plitvice, and Ljubljana?

This forum is much more helpful if you have a more specific idea of what you want to do. Your post is much too broad. The Rick Steves Croatia & Slovenia guidebook is really what you need here. This region has a lot of sightseeing options and getting around can be challenging. This is all stuff only you can figure out with the help of a good resource book. Then, folks can help you fine tune your itinerary.

That aside, fly to Brussels, probably from Zagreb which is likely cheaper than Ljubljana.

I agree with posters who say we need more information to be really helpful. Where will you be before Split? Are you renting a car? If not, I highly recommend renting a car. Driving is very easy in Croatia, and will make getting around much easier.

I recommend 3 or 4 nights in Split. We stayed 4 nights. Took the catamaran to Hvar Town for a day. Visited Trogir for 3/4 of a day. We love Split. It's beautiful architecturally and has a lovely location on the Adriatic. We hired Maja Benson, recommend by Rick, for a 2-hour private guided tour of Old Town and Diocletian's Palace. She is worth every penny. We enjoyed the Ethnographic Museum. Drinks on the Riva.

We spent 1 night at Plitvice Lake NP. Visited the Upper Lakes in late afternoon on arrival day. And visited Lower Lakes the next morning. Then around noon we drove to Zagreb where we returned our rental car. Spend 2 nights in Zagreb. Then took the train to Ljubljana for 3 nights. Rented a car for a day to drive to Lake Bled. Hope this helps a little bit.
