Split to Pula
Going to Croatia in mid september, leasing a car but need to be in Pula or Porec by the 10th....Would it be a shorter trip to get to Porec or Pula? Can anyone tell me the time frame to get to each place/or time in hours to reach each place from split. I understand they have put a new freeway thru....Thanx in advance
Re: Split to Pula
A quick look on the route planners reveals Split-Pula 5hrs 40 mins, Split-Porec, 5hrs 30 mins. I don't think that the difference is significant given it will take you 6 1/2 hours or so with rest breaks. Go to the one you prefer to visit.
I'm traveling down that highway in a few weeks, Ljubljana-Split and expect that journey to take 6 hours.
Travel Tips for Split
This is Split's riva. Favourite gathering place for locals. During the day just passing spot, walking area, but at night in summer it becomes busiest area in town. Guys are showing off with their motorbikes, girls are showing off with their ... well ... best looks and charm.
Groups of elderly women or men (they hardly ever mix) are sitting around the benches and actively chatting with the language only they understand (mix of croatian, italian, and special Dalmatian version of croatian - language I could never understand). They also talk at the same time sometimes where nobody is listening and everyone is talking - funny stuff!
Entire place is packed with action and fun.
Biking & Jogging at Marjan
Marjan hill on the western part of the town is a perfect place for biking, jogging and other outside activities. There is a bike rental company at the entrance gate (the inland entrance ). You can stay on the tarmac or try some of the forest trails. The bikes are basic mountain bikes and are in ok condition. The rent is 15 kunas (around 2 euros) per hour.
The Museum of Salonae preserve the most valuable exibits found here. A number of the exibits you can see in the museum's courtyard, but those of greater value and importants are preserved inside the museum.
On the other side of the museum, nearby the sea-shore, there are remains of a huge Roman theatre.
Buses to Bosnia & Herzegovina: Part 2
...Continued from part 1 due to lack of space:
- The journey time from Split to Mostar is approximately 4.5 hours. This involves a 2.5 hour journey southwards along the beautiful Croatian coastline, with winding mountain roads, blue seas and picturesque seaside villages (see attached photos). The journey included a 10 minute refreshment stop at Makarska and a 5 minute pick up stop at Ploce;
- At Ploce, the bus turns inland and soon reaches the Croatian-Bosnian border. The bus driver collects all passports and disappears for 5 or 10 minutes while all passengers remain on the coach. He returns and dishes out the unstamped passports to their rightful owners. We were worried that an unstamped passport might cause us problems when we left Bosnia for Serbia a few days later, but such worries were unfounded;
- Shortly after entering Bosnia, the bus pulled in at a bus station in a small town. Passengers with Mostar as their final destination were transferred to another bus which departed 15 minutes later. We had enough time to get a quick drink at a local cafe;
- Upon arrival in Mostar, the bus station is located right next to the train station and just a 10 minute walk from Mostar's old town. We were met at the bus station by the owner of the accommodation than we had booked, but there are taxis available if you don't make such arrangements.
Cheap pizza slices!
I ate at Planet Pizza Cut on my final evening in Split during a brief visit to the city in May 2007.
Planet Pizza Cut represents the closest thing to a pizza chain in Split - we passed at least two branches during our stay in the city.
We ate at the branch that is located at the end of Marmontova, on the corner where this busy pedestrianised shopping street meets the waterfront promenade.
As you would expect, there are dozens of different pizzas on offer - ham and mushroom, pepperoni, seafood, cheese and tomato, Mexicana, garlic shrimp, vegetarian....
Pizza is priced at:
1 slice = 7 Kunas (approx 0.70 GBP)
1/2 pizza (4 slices) = 26 Kunas (approx 2.60 GBP)
Full pizza (8 slices) = 50 Kunas (approx 5.00 GBP)
As well as pizza, you can purchase cold soft drinks from the fridge, but not much else.
Planet Pizza Cut is open later than most of the restaurants in the old town, generally closing around midnight, making it the ideal stop off point for a late night snack. I opted for:
1 slice of Ham and Mushroom pizza - Price = 7 Kunas (approx. 0.70 GBP)
A large slice of thin based pizza with (unsurprisingly!) cheese, ham and mushrooms.
1 slice of Mexicana pizza - Price = 7 Kunas (approx. 0.70 GBP)
As above, but topped with cheese, pepperoni and hot green chillies.
Cheap pizza slices on the go. An ideal stop off for a late night bite to eat when everywhere else is closed.
