Croatia, mainly due to the mountainous topography and the break up of the former Yugoslavia has a limited rail network much of which is single track. Journey times are not that fast, though there are plans to build fast lines from Zagreb to Rijeka and Budapest.
Zagreb has only 2-3 daily services to the 2 other main cities of Split and Rijeka . There are limited local services around Sibenik, Pula and Zadar on the Dalmatian coast and around Zagreb, Sisak Caprag, Sunja and Vinkovci inland. There are also some Regional services along the east-west main line and other lines towards Hungary north of Zagreb. Most services do not run at regular intervals.
Tickets can be bought at all staffed stations and on-line. Most trains do not need a reservation except for the “Intercity” type trains from Zagreb to Split.
BICYCLES: Cycles can be taken on most trains for a small fee and without the need to reserve.
MOBILITY ASSISTANCE: This can be arranged on line, by phone or at most staffed stations by giving 48 hours notice in advance.
INTERNATIONAL CONNECTIONS: There are twice daily Eurocity trains to Budapest, Ljubljana and Austria and night trains to Austria, Germany and Switzerland.
