You may have read our page on Travelling to Croatia Indirectly (for options on reaching Croatia by flying to a neighbouring country) and decided that this kind of travel option wasn’t quite for you. As an alternative, you could also try flying to Croatia via a stopover – read on below for details!

Here is a list of destinations in Croatia that you can reach via a stopover in Europe.

We realise some of these routes may be a little nonscenical – such as travelling via Norway! However, for reasons of completeness, we have kept the details here.

*This sign means we have noted the best airport to fly via. It is possible, however, to travel via stopovers at other German airports as well. Please check the EuroWings website for full details!

**Travelling from a London airport with Easyjet is also available on this route. Because there are already a considerable number of direct services from London to Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik, we haven’t therefore included London in this column!

PLEASE NOTE! We have listed all these routes purely on the basis that a stopover exists; flight connection times mean that a same-day stopover may not be possible. Please check airline websites carefully!
