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 Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik, all of which operate year-round, as well as summer flights to Bol (Brac). See our Flights in Croatia page for more details.
Trade Air also operate year-round flights from Osijek in eastern Croatia, and summer only flights from Rijeka – these flights can also be booked on the Croatia Airlines website.
If you’re reaching Zagreb by bus, check the Zagreb Bus Terminal website for timetable details of the many routes to and from Zagreb.
Train routes in Croatia aren’t as extensive as bus routes, but Zagreb is the most connected city of all. (Think of Zagreb as the main train hub in the country with routes branching out from it.) The most popular train route is to or from Split; you can also reach Rijeka by train (although bus is quicker!) or travel northeast towards the direction of Hungary. See the Croatia Railways site or the Die Bahn website for timetable details.
