4This train was suspended on 11 December!
The direct EuroCity train 'Casanova' between Venice and Ljubljana was withdrawn a few years ago, as the Italians insisted on all trains being fitted with a special Italian signalling system, and it wasn't economic for the Slovenians to fit this to their entire Pendolino fleet just for one pendolino train a day into Italy. This left one remaining conventional train a day between Italy & Slovenia, a sleeper train to Budapest which passed through Ljubljana at 1am. This was itself withdrawn in December 2011 due to high charges imposed by the Italians, meaning that there are now no trains whatsoever crossing the border between Italy & Slovenia. So much for the EU! For railway purposes, this border is closed, and it seems that EU transport policy incompetent Italian Railway authorities have done what 50 years of Communism failed to do, bring an Iron Curtain down across this border!

5There is a bus Trieste dp 17.00 - Zagreb ar 22.00 (except Sunday and Monday); connecting train from Venice dp 14.11 - Trieste ar 16.16
You may also take the bus Venice Mestre dp 16.10 up to Ljubljana ar 20.20 and go on by train dp 21.15 to Zagreb ar 23.36
Other solutions would take more time: train from Venice to the bi-national Italo-Slovenian town Gorizia/Nova Gorica, bus from there to Ljubljana and then train to Zagreb.
