I am planning a backpacking trip in late May around Eastern Europe starting with a week in Prague and then a week in Croatia. In Croatia, I was thinking of spending 3 to 5 days hiking in Velebit following the Premuzic Path. As I have no experience climbing or mountaineering, I was concerned with how difficult the path might be. Does it require a bunch of techical skills or is it possible to walk/hike the entire way? If it isnt, what other trails can you recommend in Croatia that is good for a 3 to 5 day hike? What kind of weather should I expect and what gear should I bring?

Also, what is the best (and cheapest) way to get to Velebit from Prague?

Any kind of advice on travelling through Croatia or Prague is appreciated. Thanks!
