We have two weeks to spend exploring Croatia and can rent a car for 2 couples. One guide book suggests that the country closes down for tourism after Oct. 15 and that there is nothing to do or see with many restaurants and hotels closing for winter. Is this true? Is this trip misguided at this time of year?
Would like to fly into Split, explore toward Dubrovnik, work out way back up toward Zagreb, visiting beautiful and interesting and charming places all along the way.....mostly in 2-3 nights per place with occasional one night stops.
Then our friends leave from Zagreb and we plan to spend another week in Slovenia.
Please let me know what your experiences are regarding this time of year and what we can expect in terms of places closing. Do we need specific reservations if we know in advance what will be open?
