Croat bus-train conductors are very proud of their vehicles ,dropping stuff on the floor or putting your manky trainer clad feet on the seats will result in a great deal of finger pointing and shouting.
The coach drivers are very punctual and will leave you at rest stops if you take too long ,they also don't speak English so you have to guess how long you have.
We had to stick legs in the folding doors to get them to wait.

The bus closes in on Zadar. In the hinterland the houses appear...abandoned! Down the road a house appears which seems to have caught fire. And here's a fine specimen of Mediterreanean villa architecture, pockmarked by bullet holes. No shops are open for it is the vacation season. Soon it is obvious that this is a former war zone, having suffered the attacks of the Knin serbs. These residences have a new ambience, characterized by mortar blasted spackle, exposed exterior roof beams, open plan living rooms, half walls, and graffiti. Some of these Croatian homes have been redecorated from top to bottom. These are the vestiges of one of the early phases of the war, the serbs against the croats, but not yet the Bosnians. Brutal looking graffiti adorns this region of Croatia,through which no bus or train passed until 1996.

Really a pity that these old houses are under decay. I loved the old part of the city of Split with plenty of old buildings, not all of them really beautiful, but still worth a visit.
