Getting to Zagreb from elsewhere in Croatia


As Croatia’s capital, Zagreb is obviously very well connected to the rest of the country; by far the quickest way of getting to Zagreb from other parts of the country is by air. Croatia Airlines have daily flights from Pula, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik. All of these operate year-round, as well as summer flights to and from Bol (Brac).

Trade Air also operates year-round flights from Osijek in eastern Croatia – these flights can also be booked on the Croatia Airlines website.

See our Flights in Croatia page for more details of all the above flight options.


If you’re getting to Zagreb by bus, check the Zagreb Bus Terminal website for timetable details of the many routes to and from the city.


Train routes in Croatia aren’t as extensive as bus routes, but Zagreb is the most connected city of all. (Think of the city as the main train hub in the country with routes branching to/out from it.) The most popular train route is to or from Split; you can also reach Zagreb from Rijeka by train (although by bus is quicker!) or travel from northeastern Croatia and/or the direction of Hungary.

See the Croatia Railways site or the Die Bahn website for timetable details.
