Travelling Around Croatia

However, generally, unless you have a hire car, you will most likely travel around Croatia by either bus or train, and ferry (of course!) if you’re reaching the islands.

The bus network is very extensive and there are many, many buses operating on inter-city/inter-county as well as local routes.

Train travel in Croatia is easy and relatively inexpensive, but the train network isn’t as far reaching as the bus network. For example – famously – Dubrovnik has no train station, so don’t try and reach this city by train!

Air, of course, is the quickest way to travel. You can fly from Zagreb to Dubrovnik in just over 1 hour; by comparison, it takes about 9 hours by bus! However – understandably – flying is also the priciest method of travel. On the other hand, if you book far enough in advance you can sometimes get some very good prices on routes within Croatia. Don’t always discount flying as a way of getting around.
