We are flying via Hong Kong stopover, from New Zealand, to Amsterdam early on morning of 3 June. Unfortunately we have to wait until lunchtime until the only direct flight to Split, arriving mid afternoon. We will be exhausted, total of 26 hours flying by then. Were originally going to leave Split out and go to Dubrovnik but theres' no direct flight that day. (we are in mid 60's.) We were only staying 1 night but think well have to stay 2 and then go to Hvar, either 3-4 nights and do day trips, then Korcula for 2 or 3 nights. Don't know if that is round the right way or not, its just that Korcula seems smaller, and small trips also from there. Any suggestions on what islnds to visit, I saw someone said Vis is nice so will try to get there. Then onto Dubrovnik for 3 nights or do we need that long? Unfortunately we have no more time, so wont be going inland. Then we are flying to Prague, although the local airlines haven't got good reviews, for 3 or possibly 4 nights, if we don't go to Krakow or Salzburg .The problem is both places don't seem quick or easy to get to from Prague and we haven't got much time cause we have to be in Budapest by late afternooon/early evening of 19th. We are staying there until evening of 22nd, which is effectively 4 nights.
maybe we have to leave Salzburg or Krakow out altogetther?
Would really appreciate some help with length of time and days etc in Croatia, we know we are missing out going inland and seeing more, but are going with the islands option instead.
Also any help with the Prague/Krakow or Salzburg options, before Budapest would be greatly appreciated.
In hindsight more time would have been great but .we are already taking all the time we can and can reasonably afford to!
We are then meeting friends and going on a short cruise, more relaxing I hope, before flying home.
