Croatia is a relatively small country where folks mostly travel by bus or by train.

Croatia is a relatively small country where folks mostly travel by bus or by train. Major routes connect the capital city, Zagreb, with the Adriatic coast, where Split, in particular, is a very popular destination.

As in many countries, local trains offer second-class service only. First class is available on the main lines, and there is a sleeping car service between Zagreb and Zadar and Split. Unless you’re trying to conserve your Kuna (that’s your cash), first class is a must-do for its overall quiet, roominess, and comfy seats. New, high-speed tilting trains have been added to the Zagreb to Split line, cutting travel time by almost four hours! If you’re traveling with a rail pass, don’t forget to book a seat. (Purchased your ticket from Rail Europe? Then, your seat reservation is already included.)

Good to know: Dubrovnic is the only major Croatian city not connected to Croatia’s rail network. Your options? Take a bus (they run frequently) from Split and be there in a little over four hours. (And, once there, the city is well connected to Zagreb by train.) Or, if you have more time, take the ferry from Split. It’s a full day’s journey, but an experience all by itself. Spending some time in Italy? Then take the (much faster) ferry service from Bari to Dubrovnic, and add a bit of Croatia to your Italian adventure.

    "We used the 3 country travel pass. When planning your trip, be sure to lay out all the days you will travel so that you can use the pass for the long journeys. Sometimes its easier and cheaper to get a day pass at the station when doing day trips and conserve on the number of days of your Rail Pass. It was convenient, good value for the money and nice to sit back and enjoy the scenery. "

    "After this trip a lot of mu friends are asking me how did it go. It was very convenient. Personnel on the stations and in the trains were very kind and service oriented. Our journey was done with no big delay and with good options like going to prague and innsbruck. Great value for the money. Whenever we'll go back we'll be using this choice. Thanks for the help and service. "
