Bus Or Train?

Train Travel

Taking the bus to Croatia is the most cost-effective choice, for those on a tight budget. Plus, it's easier to meet people on a bus if you're traveling alone.

The bus may not be as comfortable as the train, especially for overnight trips, but it can be a lot fun! :-)

Nevertheless, a train travel in Croatia is a very good possibility to see the country from a different perspective!

Therefore I wrote a separat article for train travelling. Just follow the link below:

Take A Ferry To Reach The Islands

Croatian Ferry

Ferry travel is the only way to reach the islands of Croatia - ferries also cross over from Italy on a regular basis.

The schedules change depending on the season, with more ferry crossings taking place in the summer.

Most schedules for the coming summer are released by March, at the latest. Some ferry services operate full capacity starting in April or May, with some companies only providing ferry service in July and August.

Typically the ferry season ends in September or October.

Driving With A Car

Driving is another option if you want to travel to Croatia from other European locations. Every year people drive from Italy, Slovenia, Hungary, and Austria to vacation on the coast.

Visitors also come from Bosnia-Hercegovina and Montenegro. Border crossings are easy to pass through, although lineups are long in the summer.
