Getting there & away




From the Pula bus station (502 997; Istarske Brigade bb) there are nine daily buses that head to Rijeka (66KN to 75KN, two hours). They are sometimes crowded so you should reserve a seat a day in advance if you can. Going from Pula to Rijeka, be sure to sit on the right-hand side of the bus for a stunning view of the Gulf of Kvarner.


There are two daily trains to Ljubljana, Slo­venia (125KN, four hours), and two to Zagreb (134KN, 6½ hours), but you must board a bus for part of the trip.
