I would like to know, what would be the quickest way to go from dubrovnik to thessaloniki or athens? i was looking for car rental company, in which i could take car in croatia and drop-off in greece, but unsuccessfully...also there is no direct train, bus, flight between theese cities...as i was looking for information in the internet, i found that it is possible to take bus from dubrovnik to podgorica, then to skopje and from there to thessaloniki..how often thoses buses go? and how approximately it would take to go from dubrovnik to thessaloniki with all transfers? thanks for any information
Re: from dubrovnik to thessaloniki/athens
Croatia to Greece, an eternal question and not an easy task indeed.
Folks usually go by ferry Dubrovnik-Bari (Ita), than Bari-Igoumenitsa (Greece).
Dubrovnik bus station lists one daily departure to Podgorica (additional one Mondays)
Skopje bus station lists arrival directly from Dubrovnik at 8 am (overnight I guess), worth checking out:
Re: from dubrovnik to thessaloniki/athens
I live in Zagreb and I've been using services from many different local rent-a-car companies for my needs and came up with a good, cheap and reliable answer: Milenium Rent.
Every time I wanted to do something unusual, such as driving to a different country, they made it possible for me. It was pretty easy to negotiate and to make a deal with them.
They are also the cheapest local rental company! They claim if you ever find any other cheaper offer they will let you hire a car at the same price as you've found.
They can help you with your trip to Greece I am sure.
I hope that was useful to you... Welcome and have a nice vacation in Croatia! :) Cheers!
Travel Tips for Dubrovnik
Placa is the main street of Dubrovnik, an open urban area and the most favoured promenade and gathering place. It is also the main bussines street of the old core of the town. Placa is the widest street which divides the old town into northern and southern halves, at the same time, it is the shortest communication between the Pile Gate and the Ploèe Gate.
The street was built in the 11th century when the shallow chanel separating the islet of Lava and the settlement on mainland was filled with earth. The name Placa is derived from the Greek and Latin "Platea", which means street. The street is much better known as Stradun, a Venetian sobriquet used ironically in the sense of Big street. On the both sides of Placa there are unified construction of two rows of stone houses built in the Baroque style and each one is of equal height with very similar front. The Senate of the Republic had ruled that every house should have space for several shops on the ground floor.
There are more than 60...
There are more than 60 restaurants in Dubrovnik, offering a great variety of dishes.
In general, restaurants offer traditional Dalmatian cuisine, Croatian continental cuisine, and international cuisine, including a Mexican and a Chinese restaurant in Dubrovnik.
The working hours of most restaurants are from 11.00 - 24.00.
A restaurant's menu is shown at the entrance, as well as the signs of the credit cards accepted (most major credit cards are generally accepted).
The price includes taxes, but the service charge is almost never included and is not mandatory. It is a customary, however, that the guest who is satisfied with the service leaves a tip for the waiter, 10% of the total amount is usually a fair tip.
4X4 safari in the Konavle valley
The Konavle valley is located about 20 km from Dubrovnik old town not far from he border of Montenegro. Is a rather fertile valley in between the mountains. On this safari you go really off-road with your Nissan Terrano. You go up a mountain to go near the triangle : Croatia,Montenegro, Bosnia. You have some wonderful views here !!! Do not expect to see any wild animals on this safari. It is more the adventure that counts. After a while you have to cross a river, take a rest and watch the trout jumping out of the water. Nature rules !!!
A thing you really should do on this trip is go eating in a old olive-mill. Food is prepared here on the traditional way, on hot coals. Delicious !!! You can drink a local grappa made from herbs in that region and eat fresh figues .
I forgot where it was but if you ask the agency they will surely know it !!
The lunch hour was prepared for us, on our way to Lopud.
It was really nice, fish & cuttlefish. Big fish & I could have 2 ! I was really hungry !
It was an excellent, the fish & I was thiking about the rice...such a typical Asian tummy I have.
There were some jiuces as well, the good was ...an orange juice, but secretly mixed with alcohol !
We thought the taste was funny & asked the captain about it.
He revealed that he accidently mixed the alcohol with the orange juice the previous night before (!)...Maybe a joke from him but we were all heady & nautious by this time, especially on a boat at the sea !...
On the photo you can see the place where the fish was cooked, you could even see the fish that we were going to eat ! Delicious !...but no rice...
Cavtat by boat
Cavtat is a good day trip from Dubrovnik. We travelled by car but if no car try the boat from outside of the old town gates. Avoid the bus as we met fellow travellers who said it was very crowded and therefore hot and unpleasant. You can spend some time on the beach and explore the old town in an afternoon.
