Car rental to drive from Split to Sarajevo

by rthornton

I will arrive in Split on January 26th and hang out until the 28th. On the 28th I need to get to Sarajevo. I am thinking of renting a car for that journey. Does anyone recommend a good car rental service, know how long is the drive, and have an idea about the cost of doing this? Will I need an international drivers license? I've looked a bit on the Internet for answers, but of course I'm interested in thoughts from those who have rented cars in Split to be returned in Sarajevo. Also, I've found some decent looking apartments for rent during those days, but again ... I'd be interested in anyone's personal recommendations.

Thanks,
Rodney

Re: Car rental to drive from Split to Sarajevo

Can't give you a personal reccommendation as we used public transport (train and bus) to make the Sarajevo-Split journey this year, however we have driven from Split to Mostar twice , once via Makarska and once via Imrotski - good roads both times, very little traffic once we left the coast and very straight forward border crossing procedures. Both journey times were about 3 hours excluding stops we made along the way. It's 130 km from Mostar to Split and you need to allow about 2 hours for the journey. Whilst not necessarily the most direct routes they are better roads, something you may well consider important in winter. The route via the coast is the one taken by the buses between the two cities. Check here - you'll need to copy and paste

No need for an international driver's licence.

Thrifty have a current deal for a Croatia pickup and Sarajevo dropoff - good from now through to March. https://www.thrifty.com/specials/15444.aspx

I rented a car in Split from DANI, a local company, which I used to drive around Croatia (last October. But you could be facing major charges if you pick a car in one country and drop it off in another country and you would probably have to use one of the major companies (Avis, Hertz) that operates in both countries. I had researched this for a recent trip to this area and found the cost of renting in one country and returning in another country VERY expensive. Bus is probably a lot cheaper. You do not need an international license in Croatia.

Also, in Split there are lots of people renting apartments, but you should be careful to be sure that the location is near the center -- many are pretty far away from where you want might to be.

Travel Tips for Split

Go to the restaurant called...

by Croatian_si

Go to the restaurant called Boban, in bacvice area of split. This is by far the best restaurant in Split and off the beaten path. It is a high standard restaurant with the best food available. It is very cheap in compaison to restaurants of the same standard in all other countries. It is a must, if only for one really nice meal in your entire holiday it must be here. Try the mixed grill for two with creamof Scampi soup to start - fantastic! Way of life. People are relaxed and the environment of everyone being outside and walking down the riva, young and old alike, coupled with doing this within the actual palace of the emperor dioclecian build in 1700, its like Italy but a working day to day practical relic.

Trogir-Out on the Island

by BruceDunning

This island town is only 20 miles form Split and a nice visits for one day. There are sites to take in such as CAthedral of St. Lovre and bell tower, museum(but it was closed and has been for 2 years-so wait it out), Kamerlengo fortress at the end of the island, Lucic Palace, Town square and clock tower to name a few. There are not many places where you can go inside for viewing, or touring, though. The walk along the promenade is very nice.
Trogi was called Tragurion and occupied by Greeks in 3rd century BC. It is an island with the canal for protection form land side intrusion, so defense was a goal of the old times. The town expanded with commerce of ship building, and trade of goods form distant places, and today; of course tourism is the main stay. By 1100 the Hungarian and Croat cultures settled here, but in 1132 the Islam Arabs destroyed the town. With the control by Venetians in 1420-1800, it again thrived, and the architecture is mostly from that era, even though St. Barbara church is from 9th century and St. Ivan Kristel and St. Lawrence from 13th century. The defense wall surrounding the town was destroyed during Austria rule of 1800-1918. The town is a UNESCO site now.

Shopping in Split

by jacob_m

Within the palace there are of course many tourist shops selling souvenirs but also many nice shops for example I found one with great chocolate boxes, perfects as gifts.
In the western part of Split outside the palace a more modern area has emerged with modern designshops as of course higher prices. Although still below the average prices in Western Europe.

Trains

by diocletianvs

Train journey from Zagreb to Split is a beautiful journey - don't miss it if you have time. From Zagreb railroad first passes through corn-growing plains, then hilly area with vineyards between Jastrebarsko and Karlovac. At Ostarije train leaves Zagreb - Rijeka railroad and it's the beginning of Lika - a beautiful mountaineous area with contrasts of mountains, small plains, rivers and lakes.
As the train approaches Knin the scars of the recent war will become more and more visible. And as you approach Split you'll be rewarded with one of the best views of Split and its surroundings as the train enters Kastela basin.

There are several daily trains, including new tilting ICN trains that run between two cities in 5,5 hours. Or if the view is not of some great importance for you, you can book one of the sleeping cars in night trains. Some night trains during the summer have special "party cars" with DJs and a bar - makes the night on tracks pass quicker.

Rustic atmosphere

by acemj about Pizzeria Galija

My eyes proved to be bigger than my stomach when I walked into this place. Pizza sounded great, but this place doesn't serve it in individual portions. It's a whole pizza or nothing at all. The interior curves around in a U shape with the bar near the entrance. You might get a little confused looking for the bathroom. I walked into a closet thinking I had found it! I could tell you where it is, but that really wouldn't be much fun. The shrimp and prsut (prosciutto) pizza sounded a little odd, and that is usually enough for me to pick an item off of a menu, so I gave it a try. It wasn't bad, but like I said, they don't have individual portions, so a good third of my pizza went to waste.
