Review of European Route E65

European Route E65
Reviewed 15 July 2017 via mobile

Me and two of my friends were on a trip to croatia. We hired a car in split for a day trip to dubrovnik. I was suppose to drive the car. I am from India and we drive on the right hand side. So was a bit worried about driving on the left. We gave it a try and we hired a car in split from SIXT car rental. We rented a BMW 3 series which was a cherry on the cake. Split to dubrovnik is around 250 kms, about 100 kms you have a two lane highway and the rest is the main single lane coastal route. The speed limit on the highway is 130km/hr, but their are no camera's so you dont need to worry about speeding. On the coastal road you need to look for the speed limit. The coastal route is just amazing. Beautiful views of the adriatic. You feel like going on and on. Their are a lot of fruit sellers on the roads serving fesh fruits all locally grown. Its an awesome experince. Driving on this route was easy. Their are few wineyards alongwith. You have to cross the border to go to dubrovnik so make sure you carry your paasports along. Its nothing to worry about. Its just like a toolbooth you dont even need to get down from the car. Just give them your paasports they will stamp it and give it back thats it! For Indian citizens you need to have a multiple entry schengen visa. If travelling from split to dubrovnik self drive is the best option.

Let me start by saying I'm a California girl and this route really reminded me of driving along Highway 101 in Cali. We drove from Dubrovnik through Bosnia-Herzegovina, and on to Trogir. The vistas along the way were literally BREATHTAKING, the turquoise waters, vineyards, cypress trees and deserted Croatian beaches below made for worthy picture stops. Along the way were TONS of vendors selling Limoncello, wine, nuts, fruits and vegetables all locally grown - delicious! My husband had some concerns about driving thru Bosnia, but in all honesty - they barely stopped us in our rental car!! We rolled the window down, said "Hello" and handed them our passports - they stamped 'em and said "Goodbye" as they handed back our passports. That was it!! No eastern block police to search your car!! Lol!! :) Easy-breezy country entry and exit! I think this is a great way to really SEE Croatia's wonderful coastal cities, to meet the real people, and to experience Croatia's various landscapes in person.

Interesting drive from Rijeka to Sibenik in Croatia. We stayed on the coastal road E65 the whole way. Recommend avoiding Rijeka completely if you are driving through, the town was crazy and hard to get around. We stopped at Zadar on the way south. Good road all of the way.

We started from Senj towards the south. Great drive, the only thing that i am sorry that we didn.t stop more to take pictures, go for a swim, to enjoy more. Maybe next time we will do it.
