Getting there & away
Zagreb’s big, modern bus station (61 57 983; www.akz.hr in Croatian; Avenija M Držića) has a large enclosed waiting room where you can stretch out while waiting for your bus (but be warned – there’s no heating in winter).
Buy most international tickets at windows 11 and 12. Buses depart from Zagreb bound for most of Croatia, Slovenia and places beyond. You’ll need to purchase an advance ticket at the station if you’re planning on travelling far.
