Croatia Itinerary - 5 nights - help!

Hi I need some help planning my holiday in Croatia. Me and 1 friend (both female aged 21) will be flying into Dubrovnik in October and then leaving by train probably to Ljubljana.

We will spend the first 2 nights in Dubrovnik.

After that we don't know!

We originally thought Split but after reading a lot of posts on here this doesn't seem to be a top choice.

We also wanted to visit Plitvice National Park.

Any suggestions for what we should do after leaving Dubrovnik? We will have 3 more nights before leaving Croatia.

Suggestions I have read so far (Rovinj, Hvar, Pula, Zadar, Pag)

We are young so enjoy partying but also really enjoy history, scenery and outdoor activities.

Any help would be awesome thanks!

Ljubljana is a long way from Dubrovnik for a short trip and you can't get there by rail. For 5 nights I think you need to choose a part of Croatia, e.g. Dubrovnik to Split/Trogir or Istria and explore that.

Sorry I didn't really make that very clear... After 5 nights in Croatia we are going on to Slovenia. So i meant leaving Croatia by train to Ljubljana not from Dubrovnik.

So Split or Istria for the other 3 nights?

Go to Split. Forget about Istria.

Trust me. When I was young, craziest parties were in Split.

I am not sure these days. But, I believe it's pretty much the same...

BTW, there is no trains in Dubrovnik.

Yup yup i know there is no trains :)

Awesome Split it is then!

Do you think we could still feasibly fit in Plitvice?

Plitvice will be on your way to Slovenia from Dalmatia so I think it can be done. Zadar might also be a place to look into for a night on the way up to Slovenia.

Hmmm Split in October, not much to do then, specially if you will be there during the work days.

Split is good if you wish to get some history and you can get to Trogir in 30 min by local bus and see that, one day there and then go to Plitvice for an afternoon, after that you can go to Zagreb directly and party for a day, friday and saturday are the best but during the week you can get some good partys also.

From Zagreb you can get to Ljubljana with a train in 2h.
