However, the farthest southeast area 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 has been growing in popularity for years now. Equipped with state-of-the-art marinas along the coastline, Croatia is the destination of choice for those looking for a sea adventure. Also, 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 islands and almost each is connected to the mainland and each other with the ship line.
