For the safety of the lives of those attending the next two matches in 2013, ...

On the train line between Belgrade and Budapest are at least two interesting cities, Novi Sad and Subotica. I think there are both worth visiting even though I don't remember too many abandoned buildings (wasn't looking for them). You get quite a few of them in Belgrade. Over all on the Balkans, I've seen most damage from the wars in Bosnia-Herzogovina, ...

Croatia joined the EU on the 1st of July 2013 but still didn't adopt the Euro as currency. I googled a bit and I found out an interesting site about the currency used in Croatia. From this site: You will find that you can pay for some items - accommodation, taxis, some restaurants - in Euros. Do note that this is entirely on an unofficial basis; the ...

Assuming your activities in Croatia will be similar to what you've been doing in Slovenia, you can expect your daily budget to be similar too. Out of the way towns in Croatia are a bit cheaper than Slovenia, but prices in places like Zagreb and Dubrovnik are pretty much on par with what you find in Slovenia.

Yes, foreigners are required to register with the police, unless it is done by the accommodation you are staying in. This is regulated in the Croatian Aliens Act, sections 147(1) and 147(5): Članak 147. (1) Stranac na kratkotrajnom boravku dužan je sam prijaviti svoj smještaj u roku od 2 dana od ulaska u Republiku Hrvatsku, odnosno od promjene smještaja. ...

A place where you most definitely have Canon products is Anigota which is a Canon dealer for Croatia. You can find their store in Gundulićeva 26 in Split. The store is called "Kodak centar d.o.o." and it's near "Panasonic centar". According to their website, they're open Mondays - Fridays 08:00 - 20:00 and Saturdays 08:00 - 13:00.

In April the temperature is usually above 10 degrees Celsius, and the scenery is somewhere halfway between green and "brown". The real pro is, that the place isn't crowded, like it is in the summer months. I would rather visit the lakes in April or May than in the summer. You can get weather data from here. Here are some pictures to help you decide.

There are two options for ferries from Dubrovnik to Korčula: You probably have found the time table from Jadrolinija. You are right that they currently don't run their ferry off-season, but only until end of September. But even until end of September, the ferry runs only twice a week, on Thursday and Sunday. October 1st is a Wednesday. The second ferry ...

You will need a multi entry visa. The first entry to the Schengen area is when you arrive to Italy from South Africa, the second entry is when you get back from Croatia. When you leave to Croatia this is considered as leaving the Schengen area.

It's quite easy, fortunately! Stanici is on the the Adriatic Main Road, and as you say, quite close - 5km from Omis. This is conveniently between Split and Makarska. If you just go to the general bus terminal in Split, there is a local bus service to Omis every half an hour. However, you can actually use any city bus service between Split and Imotski, ...

The Joker Centre is a good possibility - it was the first major mall to open in Split, back in 2007, and has over 50 outlets of major global brands. Odds are good that an electronics store exists, and that they could help you. At the very least they could direct you to somewhere else who does. The address is: Put Brodarice 6 near the Diocletian Palace ...

I think it depends. If you there to see something, i.e. on vacation, I would recommend to drive by yourself. The route there is really nice and you will see a beautiful landscape with a lots of possible stops between that are worth a visit, e.g. Trigor! The road is also very nice, directly at the coast with a lot of small nice beaches. I personally drove ...

Why not? Who would stop you? Just make sure to get an exit stamp when leaving Switzerland as it will be helpful to avoid various problems should you come back to the Schengen area or need another Schengen visa later on). Do ask for it at the airport or border checkpoint if necessary. It should happen in any case but I have heard of unusual cases (crossing ...

If you try to book a ticket with Voyages-SNCF, you can immediately see if there are free seats in the train. You can even try to place several orders in your shopping cart (for some reason not more than 6 tickets per order) and estimate how many seats are yet available. For the next few days, the IC 200 seem to have at least 20 seats free, so I would assume ...

Officially: NO, because you have to be allowed to convert foreign currency first, if you want to be able to accept one. Often you may find people kindly rejecting Euro and they will explain that they would like to accept it, but it would be against the law. However, as noted above, some individuals might accept it, as they know nobody will prosecute them. ...

Since at least 2009, Romania issues fully compatible EU driving licenses, credit card style and with the EU logo. With those, there should be no problem at all.

There are trains via Knin, which means a large detour inland (there just isn't a coastal line). The train journey is slow (5 hours) and the trains are infrequent, so you won't be able to get there in time. There are buses, running approximately every half-hour on Saturday morning then down to every hour or so later in the day. The journey takes about 3 ...

As others have said if you want to get to Split the best public transport offering is by bus. There are many different bus lines between the two cities. Check this page for a time table in English. You can also ride on one of those that have final stop further south like the ones that go to Makarska or Dubrovnik, as most of these will stop in Split too.

On this page, after selecting the English language, you can easily find all the schedule between Split and Supetar (and other cities). As I've understood, these ferries are quite easy to use - they are frequent (near once in 2 hours) and fast (near 50 minutes to go).
