Enjoyed Dubrovnik last May, it's tourist-y for sure but we were there before the real busy season kicked in. Taking the ferry to Lokrum for an afternoon was the highlight, probably.

Matt DC, we've basically part-pilfered your holiday: Ljubljana > Piran > Bled, and then up to Lake Milstatt in Austria. Thanks for the tips - I was having one of those "there's too much choice" panics about what to book and that was really helpful!

I was actually in Dubrovnik yesterday (albeit briefly, my bus transfer was there), it appeared much less crowded than I thought it would be (bus station seems relatively central) - may back up what ShariVari was saying (though this was around noon, would have thought the cruise ships lads would have been in by then?)

Going to Debrecen on thursday for the Bela Bartok Choir Competition. Then a couple of days in Cluj and Sibiu in Romania. Any mustsees in those areas? I know a lot of Romanian classics are shot in those two cities, but it's probably tough to drag my fellow choir members to a concrete monstrosity that I saw in that one film that one time.

nine months pass...

Right, then. Croatia in June for less than £500 per person (two people) from the UK. Any ideas?

No?

How long are you planning on being there for?

I'm not sure about the budgetary constraints but when I was there we stayed in cavtat the first night, seemed like a nice enough little semi-contained resort town with decent swimming and some restaurants, and a lot of fancy yachts. dubrovnik definitely worth a visit though eating within the walls can be expensive. split was great - good fun watching people play picigin on plitvice beach at sundown. we day tripped to mostar (in bosnia-h) from dubrovnik too which was worth doing.

we never made it to any of the islands or national parks... though hear they're the true stars of the show

June may still be early enough that the national parks aren't mad busy, but idk - wouldn't bet against it either

Zadar and surrounding region are very user-friendly, particularly for public transport - the buses (and app) are excellent, even extending out to buses on the islands (Ugljan and Pasman)
