Zagreb

Zagreb is the capital of the Republic of Croatia, situated in the northwest of the country. 

The city benefits from an extensive public transport network, consisting of trams, buses and suburban rail routes. The city is also linked to the regional rail network, operated by Croatian Railways.

How to get to Zagreb from
Route 1:

One of the most spectacular rail journeys in Europe is between Zagreb and Vienna (Wien). The route passes through the Austrian Alps, with passengers treated to spectacular mountain views. Besides the scenery, it is also one of the quickest and cheapest routes between Austria and Croatia.

A bar service is available on the route, in both directions. Both first and second class tickets are available.

Route 2:

The train between Munich, Zagreb and Belgrade takes a stunning route through the Austrian Alps. The journey is made onboard a EuroCity train, which is comfortable, and consists of a mix of Slovenian and Serbian coaches. A restaurant car is usually attached to the train.

If you don't like the sound of this daytime train, there is an overnight sleeper train between Munich and Zagreb, the Lisinki sleeper train. Either way, it is amazing to think that you can take a train that passes through five different countries in a relatively short space of time.

Route 3:

/// THIS ROUTE IS CURRENTLY SUSPENDED - SEE TIMETABLE FOR MORE INFORMATION ///

A night service operates once a day between Venice (Italy) and Budapest (Hungary), onboard the Venezia EuroNight sleeper train. The service offers First and Second Class cabins, as well as Second Class couchettes. For budget-conscious travellers, second class seating is also available, which is the cheapest accommodation option for this journey. A restaurant car is attached for the journey, providing a range of hot and cold food and drinks.

On the way the train stops at Zagreb for a short while (1hr 30mins), enough time to stretch your legs if needs be. Connections are available from Dobova to Split.

The journey between Zagreb and Venice is shared with EuroNight service 413, the service between Venice and Belgrade.

Important Visa Note

Passengers travelling on this route should be aware that the train passes through Croatia, which does not currently take part in the Schengen Agreement. This means that if you may well need a visa that permits you enry into Croatia in addition to your passport/travel documentation. Please check the visa requirements for every country that forms part of your journey to avoid unpleasant surprises.

Route 4:

While Croatian rail travel isn't quite as luxurious as its other European counterparts, it does still make an enjoyable way to travel between cities, and a sustainable alternative to air travel.

Some services do have sleeping accommodation, including services 824 and 825 as well as 1820 and 1821 (also known as 'Adria'). Services 1822 and 1823 offer second class couchettes.
