Budapest to ? (Croatia? Bosnia?)

Headed to Budapest for 4 days in mid/late August. Still have another 11 days of vacation before departing from Munich. I've seen Prague, Germany and Italy recently (Vienna quite a few years ago). Was considering a trip down Adriatic Coast (former Yugoslavia side). Would prefer trains/ferries and maybe a flight back to Munich. From what I've read, there really isn't a scenic train trip down the coast. Would welcome ideas. Thanks!

No, but there are scenic buses, and bus is the way to go in Croatia. There are no train tracks down that side - the geography of the landscape would make that quite difficult.

Thanks! Are there ferries that link the coastal towns and cities?

How about taking the daily Budapest to Sarajevo train (€55 or so, buy tickets at the station) then going forward by train to Mostar & Ploce, bus to Split, train to Zagreb, then take a Zagreb-Munich train?

Pre-book a Zagreb to Munich train at www.bahn.de/en from €29, but other tickets you can buy as you go.

Budapest - Sarajevo is €53,60 and it is a return ticket, in case you feel like using the same train to go back again

It is only a small train with 2 carriages, a Hungarian one and a Bosnian one. The Hungarian one is airline-style railfaneurope.net/pix/…ICR_Bpmz_belso.jpg and the Bosnian one is compartments, but a bit spartan vagonweb.cz/fotogalerie/…ZRS_Bm.php

When getting on the train in Budapest make sure you get in the right carriages - only 423 and 424 go to Sarajevo. The rest get taken off in Pecs.
