How to travel to Croatia? There are three main options to travel to Croatia. Air, land, and sea. You can choose whatever you like more.

How to Travel to Croatia by air?

Croatia’s main airport, Dr. Franjo Tuđman, is situated just a few miles from Croatia’s capital, Zagreb.

From there, you can fly to any corner of the country. To the far east by landing to the Osijek’s airport to experience a unique gastro holiday in Slavonia and Barania. Dozens of countryside households keep their doors open for tourists who want to spend a few days in peace and quiet while indulging their appetite with unforgettable dishes.

If you are going to the coast; then you can choose to land in Istra, Central Dalmatia (Split airport) or, which is the #1 option for Game of Thrones fans, far south to visit one of the Top 10 World’s destinations – Dubrovnik.

What about the roads?

From west to east. From north to south and then some. New, modern freeways will take you to any place in Croatia. You will be driving through pristine wilderness and witness some of the most breathtaking places in this part of the world.

It’s, therefore, no wonder why so many people opt-in for this option to travel to Croatia because they want to be able to stop whenever they feel like and enjoy the sightseeing. Not to mention the #1 advantage of road traveling and that’s the ultimate freedom to choose where to go and when!

Arrive by bus

However, to save on the total cost of holidaying in Croatia, you might choose to arrive by bus. This is a popular option for Europeans from every member state. The bus ticket is far cheaper than gas and toll expenses you’ll incur when driving.

Younger visitors, who are looking for some clubbing time in one of the hundreds of nightclubs along the coastline, are choosing buses as their preferred method of transportation.

Or jump on your bicycle

It might come as a surprise, but thousands are arriving with their bikes every day. Cycling tourism and arrivals are common and reach far back in the 80s of the last century when first tourists decided to travel to Croatia on their bikes.

Miles and miles of cycling tracks are on your disposal if you opt-in for cycling to Croatia.

However, the farthest southeast you can reach by train is the town of Metković. That is to say that if you are traveling to Dubrovnik, you’ll need to catch the bus from that point or perhaps sooner, from Split or even Zagreb, if you arrived from any of the European or Asian destinations.

Set sails and travel to Croatia by sea

This travel option is growing in popularity for years now. Equipped with state-of-the-art marinas along the coastline, Croatia is the destination of choice those looking for a sea adventure.

In addition, ferries that connect Italy and Croatia, enable you to safely transport your vehicle and cross the Adriatic sea in hours to visit Croatia if you happen to be in Italy.

When it comes to ships and ferries, no other country in Europe has so many active lines and vessels. Croatia is the land with a thousand of islands and almost each is connected to the mainland and each other with the ship line.
