I ended up getting a typhoid shot at the Zagreb city-run Andrija Stampar Teaching Institute of Public Health (Croatian: Zavod za javno zdravstvo "Dr. Andrija Štampar", link to official website). The address is Mirogojska 16, 10000 Zagreb, Croatia. Look for the signs for "epidemiologija", just to the left inside the main entrance.
The medical staff spoke ...
You should go. I've never been to Montenegro, but I have been to various places in Dalmatia, and I have spent a good deal of time in and around Sarajevo, where my mother in law lives.
I'm not sure exactly what you mean by "trekking" (and I have no idea what you mean by "integrist"). Land mines are a problem in Bosnia, but the problem is dwindling, thanks ...
The question has basically already been answered in the comments, but here we go, also with a few possibilities to solve the problem.
If you are correct with your statement in the question, that you are not allowed to enter Croatia, you will only have a single-entry Schengen visa. In this case, you will neither be allowed to take the bus from Venice to ...
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 ...
As Croatia is not part of EU yet. But they will soon this year. They exempt visa for anyone who holds Schengen visa in these types. http://www.mvep.hr/MVP.asp?pcpid=1615&dmid=92#pocdrz
* residence permits issued by one of the Schengen area members
* uniform visas (C) or
* long-stay visas (D) issued by one of the Schengen area members
However, upon ...
In Wikipedia there is a page about the relations between Croatia and Serbia
For the first time in history, Serbia as an independent country will be represented by its national team against the Croatian team on March 22, 2013 in qualification group A of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. For the safety of the lives of those attending the next two matches in 2013, ...
I have not "trekked" through the Balkans but I have cycled unaccompanied with no support through Croatia, Bosnia, Montenegro, Albania and Macedonia and found the people very friendly and helpful and the overall experience 'safe'. Although my description of safe may differ from yours.
I stayed in a hostel/b&b for one night in Podgorica but the rest of ...
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):
(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.
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, ...
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.
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.
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 ...
If I were you I'd take €100 or €200 cash from a bank in Bosnia. You won't get a great exchange rate but you will save having to get around Croatia. If you can't find a bank, use a foreign exchange office, but you'll get a much less favorable rate. You will probably have to wait until Monday.
I suspect that they'd accept any convertible cash that has the ...
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.
No, you cannot. Unfortunately the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs in Croatia clearly states that you need a multiple entry visa in order to do so.
In line with the Government’s decision, aliens who are holders of:
uniform visa (C) for two or multiple entries, valid for all Schengen Area member states;
visa with limited territorial ...
You are indeed looking way too far in advance for European rail planners. Train timetables in Europe change twice a year (mid-December and mid-June) and are published a few weeks before, depending on the operator. Even when the timetable does not change, booking generally opens three months or so before the date of travel.
Consequently, as of writing this ...
For Croatia and Romania, it depends on your citizenship and possibly on your country of residence and a few other details but not really on where you are currently travelling from.
These two countries are EU member states and they should not stamp EU passports (nor even require EU citizens from travelling with a passport, if they hold an ID card). I guess ...
I only have anecdotal evidence for you as a Croat who frequently travels with a foreign non-euro passport through ex-Yugo countries. On some of the land borders the agents get quite lazy and will literally just look at the outside of the passport and wave you through. These guys you can quite easily ask for stamp if they don't automatically do it (mime it if ...
The premium you paid is due due to buying it in the Resort/Hotel shop. While that markup is pretty high, it is nearly universal that you will pay noticeably more in the Resort/Hotel shop than on the street.
For most guests, convenience significantly outweighs cost and some guests are captive with no means to easily or safely leave the Resort.
You will ...
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.
This is possible. It is an economical way of accommodation in Croatia. In tourist areas, it is not difficult to find a room ("Sobe" in Croatian), even during the high season. Landlords await tourists at the arrival of the boat or the bus. You can also go to the local tourist office. They can help you in finding a room. It is possible to find rooms in the ...
EU-Bürger müssen sich bei einem Aufenthalt von bis zu 90 Tagen nicht mehr bei den örtlichen Behörden registrieren lassen.
EU citizens no longer have to register locally during a stay (in Croatia) of up to 90 days.
Staying in Croatia does indeed not count towards your Schengen stay.
Stays in Bulgaria, Croatia, Ireland, Romania, Cyprus and the United
Kingdom shall not be taken into account as they are not (yet) part of
the Schengen area without internal borders.
Croatia has its own 90 out of 180 rule, as can be read on this website of their ...
This is exactly the concern I had this past summer (July 2015). There is a bus that goes through that part of Bosnia-Hezergovina, but that involves border crossings that I decided to avoid given that there does not seem to be anything particularly interesting in that area.
The choice we made and we're happy with it to simply go around. There is catamaran ...
There are many private bus companies on both the routes from Split to Plitivice and from Plitvice to Zagreb. Buses in Croatia normally don't sell out, though they may in particularly busy travel periods, I think you should be fine in October.
BalkanViaTor has done a pretty good job at collecting the schedules in one place. You can book tickets in advance ...
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Foreigners who have multiple Schengen visa or European Union member state visa or residence permit of the Schengen Agreement country or European Union member state, if for such passport holders visa is required, can stay up to 15 days in Bosnia and Herzegovina without visa under condition that they enter in BiH from the Schengen ...
Here is price example in a sales catalog of Konzum's, Croatia's largest supermarket chain.

So, the normal price is 55 kn which is about 7,4 euro (or about 10 euro per ltr) which is comparable to prices in German supermarkets.
