My husband and I are planning a trip to Croatia in early May (9th or 10th) for one week. My ancestral home is in Vivodina and it would be really neat to check it out but how much time to devote and is it really worth it. We are from the U.S. and thinking of flying into Zagreb to hit Vivodina. Then, train or rental car (?) to Plitvice as a day trip. Then to Dubrovnik for 3 nights. Any suggestions to this and any suggested day trips worthwhile from Dubrovnik? Are we missing out by skipping over Split? I feel a calling to view my roots in Vivodina but is that too out of the way for a one week trip where perhaps, most of our time should be centered more southern?
Thank you all for any insight.
