Croatia is the fashionable destination for some years yet, and really deserves to be visited.

The national railway company of Croatia is known as Hrvatske željeznice, HŽ. The company operates nearly 3,000 km of tracks. Croatia has a dense railway network. Croatia plans to develop high speed tracks in the coming years, which would reduce the travel duration between main cities. Major routes in Croatia are Zagreb to Koprivnica, Zagreb to Oštarije and Rijeka, Oštarije to Split, Zagreb to Sisak and Zagreb to Varaždin.


Dalmatia is a one of a kind experience. Roman ruins are there, standing and looking at the bustling nightlife that takes place at its foot. Do not miss Split and the capital of Croatia, Zagreb. Going there by train you will arrive right in the midst of the cities, so you can easily explore it taking your time.


If you like nature, the nearly 1800 km of coastline offer a sparkling sea and an amazing landscape. You can also go biking in Slavonia, a charming place to explore. If you prefer culture, hop aboard a train to Dubrovnik and enjoy this UNESCO World Heritage site.

Take Home

While you are in Dubrovnik, you can buy some jewels and find a lot of souvenirs shops. To go shopping the fashionable boutiques of Zagreb are perfect. If you are after some local wine, take a train to Peljesac Peninsula and bring back one of the finest bottle of Croatia.

Eat & Drink

Homebrews are a speciality Croatia can be proud of. Taste the Rijecko pivo in Rijeka or the Ožujsko in the capital. Take a train to Volosko and try the seafood, one of the finest one in Europe. And do not leave before eating some Pršut (dry smoked ham), with bread and Pag cheese.

New Perspective

In Zagreb, enjoy the theatre scene checking out the Croatian National Theatre, which is an amazing building with an interesting programming.

    Think twice |
    "What can we say when the coach stewardess does not speak either English or Italian (and the train traverses Italy), the coach does not have any drinking water dispenser, and there was no packaged drinking water on board available for sale! The aircon did not work until 30 min.s into the journey, and it was circa 35 degrees C. The lighting did not work properly - one dim ceiling light only, and no reading lamps. And the coach stewardess was in the adjoining cabin and smoked in the cabin - against the carriers own regulations - so that her 2nd hand smoke drifted straight out her window and into ours, and permeated the A/C once it began working.

    First time travel |
    "The only problem with this service is that there is NO baggage storage area for large suitcases on this train. The overhead racks can only take small suitcases and back packs meaning you have to keep the suitcases on the floor of the compartment. In a 6 berth cabin once there are 2-3 suitcases there is no room left at all. We were lucky that the train was not full. If full it would have been mpossible with luggage. "

    Bus change |
    "Sadly the bus was used and not the train on this part of our trip but it was waiting for us at Villach so there were no hassles even though there was only 10 minutes between arrival of the train and departure of the bus. Obviously this part of the journey was much slower with traffic hassles and so on. "

    Best way to travel |
    "Train travel was a brilliant way for my husband and I to get to Italy from Vienna. Payed extra to upgrade to first class which was worthwhile. The trip was relaxing, avoided the chaos of airports and allowed us to enjoy the scenic countryside. Would highly recommend. "

    This is first class  |
    "We were warned that the first class was very mediocre . As our train was arriving around 2.30 am I did set my alarm just in case we doozed off . Thank fully I did as no surprise that no one came and pre warned us that we were reaching our destination and no loud speaker over the intercom that we had reached the statistics n . So hint !! Make sure you are ready to alight with luggage intact quickly Using rail Europe is easy but not the cheapest site for train fares "
