Spending time in Croatia

by Katherine
(Munich Germany)

Hi! I have never travelled to Croatia and am trying to coordinate a trip with friends for only 4/5 days in the beginning of June. My friends are travelling from Frankfurt to Croatia and I will take a plane from Munich or a bus from Vienna. What is the recommended place to visit if we desire beaches and relaxation but have to be concerned with price. Right now its inexpensive to fly in to Zagreb Croatia but it is a distance from the beach?

I have read its worth taking a 9 hour cruise but not sure if this is the best use of our time. Can you help with recommending the best option for Teaching Assistants with limited income to spend.

Thank you so much!


Hi Katherine,

I've taken the bus myself from Munich (Busbahnhof in Fröttmanning near the Allianz Arena) to Zadar a couple of years ago. It's very cheap - something around 50 EUR (one-way). It takes some time but it's very cheap.

If you want "beaches & relaxation" - Zagreb is not the right place for you. From Zagreb it's another 4 to 5 hours to the coast (and your desired beaches).

For specific suggestions on possible spots in Croatia I would need more information from you.

Nevertheless, the nearest coastal area from Zagreb is Istria (northern area of Croatia) - that's also not that expensive and has great beaches. You could also consider the island of Krk (connected via bridge from mainland) which also is in the Istria region (great island with fantastic beaches).

If you need something else - just comment here.

Hope that helps!

All the best,
