Ferry from Split to Hvar on 12 October

by sue.mcevoy

It would appear that Jadrolinja stops their catamaran service between Split and Hvar on 30 September. Since I have been unable to get hold of Jarolinja by phone, I was wondering if anyone knew of any other way of travelling between Split and Hvar in mid-October.

Many thanks
Sue

The normal ferries from Split to Stari Grad (on the island of Hvar) are running. They run all year round, and there are about four to five departures per day. From Stari Grad you can take a bus to Hvar town itself.

Thanks very much for your response but it looks to me as though the Split to Stari Grad ferry runs only on the Tuesday (13 Oct) that week and that's a day when Easy Jet do not fly from Gatwick to Split! I think I need to go to Plan B.

K V B is correct. I went from Split to Hvar Town and back on the Catamaran last year around October 14 -- 17. THere was daily service. The ferries to Stari Grad were also running.

While I cannot seem to verify the Catamaran service for October on the website, I don't see why this year should be any different than last year. I was able to confirm the Car Ferry service to Stari Grad which is also on Hvar, for October, There is regular bus service from Stari Grad to Hvar town.

The website isn't showing the low season local sailings for some reason - just the twice-weekly coastal ferry that stops at Split, Stari Grad (Hvar), Korcula and Dubrovnik en route from Rijeka to Bari. The Split - Stari Grad local ferry does indeed operate all year round, with four sailings a day in the low season.
I emailed Jadrolinja today with a query of my own and had a reply almost immediately. You might like to do the same to set your mind at rest.

The ferries arrive at Stari Grad. Buses meet the ferries for transport to Hvar town.

Travel Tips for Split

Some good to know facts about Split%s

by Venturingnow

SPLIT is a city and port in Central Dalmatia; the city population is 189,388. The city is situated on a peninsula between the eastern part of the Gulf of Kastela and the Split Channel. A hill, Marjan (178 m), rises in the western part of the peninsula. The ridges Kozjak (780 m) and Mosor (1,330 m) protect the city from the north and northeast, and separate it from the hinterland. Split has the Mediterranean climate: hot dry summers (average air temperature in July reaches 26 °C) and mild, humid winters (average annual rainfall is 900 mm). From my experiences, it is very sunny, hot, and dry. Split is one of the sunniest places in Europe: the average daily insolation during the year is about 7 hours (in July about 12 hours). Vegetation is of the evergreen Mediterranean type, and subtropical flora (palm-trees, agaves, cacti) grows in the city and its surroundings. Marjan is covered with a cultivated forest.%s

Hajduk Football Club

by hello3001

Sport is very popular in Croatia in general and one of the most popular sports is football. Hajduk is the name of the football club from Split. The club has a long tradition, founded in 1911, and to many people it is very much part of their life.

Roman Salona 2

by TheWanderingCamel

Moving through the site, the small house just past the Manastirine was built in 1898 as the headquarters for archaeologists working on the site. Called the Tusculum, it's now the museum. Inscribed stones and other pieces from the site were used in the building of the facade. Although it's supposed to be open when the site is open, this isn't always the case - it was closed the day we were there and we couldn't find anyone who knew when - or if - it would open that day.

Next to the Tusculum there's a pretty shaded garden dotted with columns, capitals and other pieces retrieved from the site. A long cypress-shaded path leads from here down to the rest of the site. You'll appreciate the shade given in both these places when you get further out into the exposed areas!

You could spend hours exploring Salona. Well-defined baths can be found in the eastern section of the site as well as the outline of an early Christian basilica, and other religious buildings.

In summer, the site is open from 7am to 7pm. Winter hours are 9-3.
Entry fee: 10kn

By train to Split

by jacob_m

There are about four daily trains between Zagreb and Split and most of them are nighttrains leaving Split or Zagreb in the afternoon/evening and arriving in the morning.
One of them I think originates from Budapest in Hungary. The trains are really cheap but it takes some time to go from Zagreb to Split (about 12 hours or so), bring something to read + some own food as there aren't normally any restaurant-cars in the trains.
The railway station in Split is centrally located close to the port (with all passengerferries) and the main bus station.

Murvica

by edgarvnl about Murvica

Murvica is located in a small village named Jelsa on Hvar island. Just slightly up the hill from the harbor. It has a vine covered terrace that's perfect for a true Med-style lunch. The proprietor provides local color and hospitality. Grilled fish, inevitably catch of the day, served with olive oil and lemon. Simple dish, but incredible.
