I'll be visiting Croatia in about two weeks and would like to know if this is a viable option. I'd like to leave Zagreb in the morning, hike through Plitvice National Park, then take an overnight bus to Split. I'm obviously on a time constraint :-/
1.) Is this at all possible?
2.) From what I've read, no bus goes directly to the National Park entrances. How far are bus stops to the nearest park entrances?
3.) Is it worth staying overnight outside the park?
Anything will help. Thanks!

2Thank you! I already looked into that same exact scenario but I suppose I needed some validation it could be done. Should I choose to leave Plitvice at 23:45, are there things to do in the evening? cafe? dining? near the bus terminal? Can I pay the driver direct or do I need to purchase a ticket at some point?

3Not a lot to do in the evening, I would take the earlier bus and spend a few hours in Zadar. Pay the driver for your ticket.

6There is a direct, very convenient bus route provided by Croatia bus company ( http://www.croatiabus.hr/index.php?lang=en ). They depart from Trieste every day except on Sundays at 17:00 with arrival in Zagreb at 21:15. The price is 125 kunas or roughly 16.70 euros. It is a great thing that Croatia bus allows online ticket purchase, so you don`t have to bother yourself waiting for the ticket at Trieste station. You just buy it online and enjoy the voyage.
From Plitvice to Split there are several different prices, depending on the particular bus company. Anyway, my favourite bus company, Croatia bus, has the price of 132 kunas or roughly 17.70 euros. Their bus departs from Plitvice at 10:55 and arrives in Split at 17:15. You can also buy this ticket online, but keep in mind that you have to be at Plitvice bus station some 15 minutes before scheduled departure because Plitvice is just a small station and not the starting station.
