Toilets are great all over Croatia due to a law we have (i.e. they always have to have toilet paper, soap, etc.). We are kinda spoiled when going abroad... I don't remember a restaurant but there is a shop or two for sandwiches and light meals. Ploce is very small, so you might walk 5 minutes to get to a restaurant. Why are you asking about the Ploce bus station???

Happyby pleasure, thanks for your reply.

We are just wanting a longer break from the bus, Dubrovnik to Split. 5 hours. Concerned about time limits

18mins stop here, for toilet break with the whole busload of people using facilities. Thought we could have a break here and stretch our legs , relax, use toilet facilities and get something to eat without rushing. The next bus is in one and half hours which we don't mind waiting for.

Your thoughts please

Sounds like you may have to buy separate tickets, Dubrovnik to Ploce and then Ploce to Split. The next bus may or may not be the same carrier and you cannot change buses midway thru your trip. Perhaps more research is necessary.

Dubrovnik travellady, Thanks for your reply.

We did plan to buy 2 separate tickets so this is covered.

Our main question is what facilities are at Ploce bus station.

We want to have a drink and something to eat and relax and be comfortable while we wait at the terminal. We are in our mid 60's and are concerned about necessary toilet stops. So this would suit us , as we can relax,stretch our legs and have no concerns. Can you advise.

The bus station is on the edge of the town. Even if the bus station has a cafe that you fancy, you may do better taking a two minute walk to get to the town. Don't expect anything special in Ploce. It is a post WW2 industrial port. That said, it's fine, just not very pretty.

Thanks Richard.

Good to know. Still had understand how no-one can tell me about the bus station. Heaps of people must use it, coming in for transfer by ferry to islands and travelling onto Mostar. BH.

It's probably because the regulars on here travel in cars - either their own or hire cars.

Ploce is ugly and industrial. Very few tourists would choose to spend time there. There should be one or two toilet stops en route without having to change bus. If 5 hours travel is too much it would have been a better idea to break up the journey by spending the night in Korcula.
