I was also just googling that and found the info that there should be one at 21:00 and 22:00, but mind you it was a pop-up window and I don't know how old or accurate the information is. Best just go to the ticket window at arrival and ask. And watch out that you get like 2 tickets stapled together and each with a coupon attached! I travelled that leg last year and it took around 5 hours.

Good luck!

Think you need not panic .......

Go to

http://www.libertasdubrovnik.hr/

and click on

Poredan po Vremenu

underneath Medugradski/Medunarodni.

You'll get a PDF listing departure times from Dubrovnik to various places, including Split. There are buses at 2100 and 2200. You should be able to catch the latter, if not the former.

I believe the fare is somewhere around 90 - 122 Croatian Kuna one-way.

The best place to go for croatian bus schedules nowadays is here:

http://www.autobusni-kolodvor.com/en/default.aspx

This site has the ambition to be a one-stop place for all transportation in Croatia, and is very usefull.

Remember that if you arrive by plane in Dubrovnik that the airport is in Cavtat- You'll need to get to Dubrovnik first...

Travel Tips for Split

The people in Split are mainly...

by AndreasK

The people in Split are mainly Croats, whose Croatian language is written in the Roman (or Latin) alphabet. There is also a large Serb minority and smaller numbers of Slavic Muslims, Hungarians, Slovenes, and Italians. The Croats are predominantly Roman Catholic, whereas the Serbs are Serbian Orthodox.

Hadjuk Split FC

by William1982

Split takes its football very seriously and Hadjuk are one of the best (if not the best) teams in Croatia. They are the country's most successful club and are also current champions. Games take place at the Poljudsko setaliste, the stadium looks like a giant spaceship from the outside. You should be allowed into the ground to take a look around for free, something what never happens in England!!!

Salona's amphitheatre

by TheWanderingCamel

Certainly the most impressive remnant of the city that was Salona is its 2nd century amphitheatre. It's quite a long walk from the entry (a downhill stroll to get there - harder coming back on a hot day). It was built to seat 18,000 and initially it was used for gladiatorial games (there is a wonderful small model of a gladiator in the Archaeological Museum in Split) and it's thought this ampitheatre was the first to be used for Christian executions as the persecution that began with Diocletian grew. Those horrors ended once Constantine declared Christianity to be the official religion of Rome and after the Emperor Justinian banned gladiator fights it was probably used for Christian festivals.

Salona was sacked by the Avars and Croats in 614. With its citizens driven to seek refuge within the walls of the abandoned imperial palace, the following centuries saw the amphitheatre and the city quarried for the vast quantities of dressed stone it provided. What wasn't destroyed by time was finally demolished by the Venetians in the 16th century to prevent the Ottoman Turks, who were moving ever closer to the coast, from gaining shelter there.

Excavations began in the late 19th century but there is still much to be discovered.

Look out for the aqueduct by the road from Split. Once it ran for 9km from the source of the River Jadro to bring water to the palace on the seashore.

By bus to Split from Dubrovnik

by yumyum

We travelled by bus from Dubrovnik to Split. The ticket in September 2008 cost 150 Kuna. You actually get 2 tickets Dubrovnik-Metkovic and Metkovic-Split. Make sure you have two little receipt pieces from those two tickets which come stapled together.

There was one guy who didn't have those little pieces stuck to his ticket and he had to pay again, although he was clearly a foreigner travelling with a foreign older person and bought the ticket just before he got on the bus.

The journey is very beautiful and it took about 5.5 hours. Make sure you sit on the left side in the direction of travelling so that you see the beautiful coast. If you are prone to motion sickness, don't forget to bring spearmint chewing gum.

Also a word of WARNING:
Put your passport in your hand luggage because you will cross the Bosnian border twice and if you don't have it you may have to go and dig it out of your luggage and make the whole bus wait. It happened to some backpackers on our bus.

The bus will stop in Neum in Bosnia for an inoffical stop but beware that there may be extremely long lines for the toilets as there are as many as a dozen buses stopping at the same time. I had no chance to reach the toilet.

Gradska Kavana

by BlueLlama about Tourist restaurant in beautiful surroundings

Yet another classic Split restaurant - ie a mix of Italian and local seafood dishes. It seems to be principally frequented by tourists, at least judging by the clientale we saw and the fact that a group of locals went past, looked and clearly said something about tourists. So, not one to try if you like to avoid the well-beaten path!

There is a reason it's so visited by foreigners of course. It has a perfect location for enjoying the architecture and life of Diocletian's Palace. Narodni Trg is an open square so you can both watch people go by and admire Palace itself, while the restaurant itself is smart and comfortable.

The food was mixed. The Dalmatian stewed fish dish with polenta that I tried was good if not great. I was pleased to see it on the menu, as some of the other dishes like this I'd seen were very dear and only served in portions for two or more people. Carbonara, however, was not so good. Served too cool for pasta, and as it was made with cream, pretty horrible when cold. Lukewarm does seem to be the Croatian style of serving food, which is great for fish but not very successful with things like pasta.

Service was pretty good and you are quite welcome to stop just for a drink.
