while traveling to Ljublana to Split, I made a stupid mistake. I took a flight from Zagreb to split, i should have travelled to Plitvice from Zagreb as I understand that its nearer to Zagreb. I plan to go To Dubrovnik from here while may be seeing one of the islands - Hvar or Korkula. I am thinking of making a day trip to Plitvice from Split. But i realize that it can be very tiring as one way travel is 3 hrs.
is there a smarter way of planning - i go to Plitvice and i leave to Dubrovnik from there? or shall i extend my stay at split to return back. Are there any overnight ship i can take to dubrovnik to save time? I am not very fond of bus travel either - prefer trains always. These days its 35 degrees here. Are these buses (split to Plitvice) comfortable in this heat for such long journeys? Need some practical advice.
