Getting to Croatia. A Visitors' Guide
Croatia is a beautiful country in Southern Europe. It possesses a fascinating history and is home to some of the most stunning sights in the world. The local culture will also impress you. Moreover, it is a shopping haven. It is quite easy to get to Croatia. Visitors have a choice of travelling by air, train or bus.

By Air - Croatia has several airports. Some cater to mainly domestic and regional flights, while others are more international. The busier airports include Dubrovnik Airport, Pula Airport, Split Airport, Zada Airport and Zaghreb Airport. Croatia is quite accessible by plane. If you are from places such as Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Madrid, Milan, Moscow, Paris, Munch, Prague and Rome, you should be able to catch a flight to Croatia quite easily. Visitors can also take Ryanair to Triest, Italy, before taking a bus to Croatia. This is quite a popular travel option. Whatever it is, be sure to choose the airline that best suits your needs in terms of location and cost. Be sure to confirm which airport your flight will be landing at.

By Train - There are both direct and indirect train routes to Croatia. If you are from countries such as Austria, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Italy or Greece, you will be able to take a direct train line to the major Croatian cities. If you are from any other European country, you can still travel to Croatia using an indirect train route. The main railway providers are EuroCity and Intercity. They provide different routes and their tickets are priced differently. Many visitors prefer to take the train as it gives them the opportunity to travel in leisure and to enjoy the beautiful sights and scenes along the way. Moreover, it is a less expensive form of travelling compared to taking a flight.

By Bus - If you are coming from Italy, Bosnia, Montenegro, Hungary or Austria, you may want to reach Croatia by bus. There are two daily buses from Venice that will land you in Pula. It is a five hour journey with pit stops in Trieste and Rovinj. As for the other locations, there are both local and daily buses. The journeys all have pit stops, and you will find the service to be quite efficient as you do not have to leave the bus to pass the border. Immigration officials will board the bus to check your passports, and this involves minimum fuss.
