Itinerary for 11-12 days in Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia

Can you suggest an itinerary for 11-12 days in Croatia- Slovenia- Serbia? We want to star in Belgrade, go to Zagreb, then Ljubliana, Bled, Postojna, Plitvice, Split, and Dubrovnik.

Can we go from place to place using public transportation? Can we just stay in three cities and take day trips to the other places?

How many days should we stay in BElgrade? Dubrovnik? Zagreb?

Hi there!

A great idea t do a 'Balkan route'.

One question though- will you be driving?

I would definetly suggest you drive, and do something like this:

1. Belgrade. 2 days

2. drive southwest, through Bosnia

3. visit Sarajevo & Mostar. 2 days

4. arrive Dubrovnik. 2 days

5. Split & Trogir. 2 days

6. Plitvice - 1 day

7. Gorski kotar - 1 day

8. Zagreb - 1 day

9. Ljubljana - 1 day

10. Bled - 1 day

If I were you, I'd be driving - it gives you freedom and independence.

I think you are trying to cram too much into 12 days. Even if you drive, you will spend lot of your time travelling between places. With public transport, it is even worse.

I don't think you can stay in 3 cities and do day trips to other places. For example, Zagreb to Dubrovnik is 600 km.

IMO you need to choose fewer destinations to be able to enjoy your trip.

BTW when are you planning your trip for?
