My wife & I will be in Dubrovnik for six nights in late April. We plan on using it as a hub of sorts to see not only Dubrovnik but sights near by in Croatia, Montenegro and Bosnia. Following that, we have five more nights available before flying home from Zagreb on May 5.
The schedule for ferries out of Dubrovnik to points north, e.g., Split, Hvar, etc. isn't all that clear as to whether they run in late April. Does anyone know if they do, and how frequently? I would prefer taking a ferry from Dubrovnik to, say, Split or Hvar as opposed to renting a car, driving it to Split and then giving up the car for a few days.
From Split we would rent a car and drive to Zagreb via Plitvice Lakes National Park.
Any recommendations for towns/sights to see from Dubrovnik on our way to Zagreb? I hear mixed things about Split. We would want something reachable by ferry or rental car. I'm happy to stay overnight for 1-3 nights before finishing our vacation in Zagreb. I hear nice things about Hvar and realize that that is on an island.
