    Take trams!

    by tomeek Updated May 18, 2006

    To navigate inside the city center and surrounded areas, use the favorite city transport, blue tram! You can find the map with all lines at every tram station or ask for the map in the tourist Info. But be aware, if you are in the hurry, better walk because trams tent to be very slow, particulary in the peak hours (which can be extended during whole working day!)

    The one on this pic is the oldest type, but you can still see it running around, quite fast! Nowdays we have several newer, spaciest and fastest trains but the old ones are somehow my favorites! :-) The tickets can be found on street kiosks or at the drivers inside...I recommend kiosk, they are more cheaper and you don't slow the train by talking to the driver!

    Blue tram is one of the Zagreb's symbols! Uspinjaca - blue cable car that connects two towns The map of all tram lines, for your convenience

    Getting there

    by Boniek Written Jan 11, 2006

    We arrived in Zagreb by train from Slovenia. It's a decent enough service and I'd say you'll have no problems getting there and away to any city in Europe. We left straight to Venice and were able to book tickets straight through. The only thing was having to change in Ljubljana again.

    Train ride from Ljubljana to Zagreb

    You can take one of the 4 direct train from Ljubljana to Zagreb, mostly go onward to Budapest. The fare was about EUR13 and it take about 3 hours, including crossing the immigration check point clearance.

    This is the beautiful train station.
    As I came by flight, I did not use any trains here, but I understand that beside local trains you can get long distance connections from here to places such as Budapest or Vienna and it will take only few hours.

    Zagreb to Ljubljana train timetable

    Slovene capital Ljubljana and Zagreb are only about 2 hours 20 minutes apart. This would be a very good day trip and has come up intermittently in the forums - here is the current timetable 'there and back again'

    Website is for the Slovene side

    Use the train whenever possible

    by dbrener Updated Jul 2, 2005

    The main train line in Zagreb connects the west and the east of the city in the most efficient way possible. Most of the people living on the edges of the city are going to be using it, simply because you can avoid all the traffic rush that influences all other sorts of traffic. So, until the metro is built (and that's going to take at least a few years more), if you're going to the center from the west or the east, find your station and use it!

    Josip Broz Tito's train

    by croisbeauty Updated Mar 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On the right side of the Glavni kolodvor, the Central Railway Station, (near the Post Office) there is a locomotive which use to be a part of Josip Broz Tito's train.
    The steam locomotive remainds us the way we used to travel when we were kids.

    The train station, Glavni kolodvor, sees more traffic than other points of entry into the city. It is situated right in the heart of the town and very handy to get hotels and all major sights.
    The left luggage facilities, Garderoba, are available 24 hours. Each piece of luggage costs 10kn per day (aprox. 1,40 euros).
    Getting to town: directly in front of you is Trg kralja Tomislava. It's only a five minutes walk to get the main square, Trg J. Jelacic.

    The train station, Glavni kolodvor - The Central Railway Station of Zagreb, seems more traffic than other points of entry into the city.
    The facilities: changing currency, calling home, left luggage etc.
    Getting to Town: directly in front of it there is Trg Kralja Tomislava, you past three tree-lined parks in a row and after only a five minute walk there is the main square.

    We missed the train on the way from Ljubljana but took it for the return journey as it was a much quicker option than the bus and the price was much the same (83 HRK or about 11 Euro) for a single ticket.

    We went from the small but very nice Zagreb main station to Ljubljana (Slovenia). The nice Austrian train which connects Zagreb with Munich was on time and comfortable and the train ride along the river was beautiful.

    Border checks are rather serious though so you wouldn't want to have forgotten your passport or brought too many cigarettes ;) Which we didn't so we were allowed to enter the European union.

    We didn't even pay a fortune for our lovely handwritten ticket, it was around 110 kn for a single ride. Amazing when you are used to German rail prices!!!

    Tramvaj aka the Train!

    This is the most popular public transportation in Zagreb. Although it doesnt run throughout ALL of Zagreb it does a pretty good job of circling the city. But beware there are "police" that can catch you, so make sure you have a ticket!

  • Train from Budapest

    by The_Global_Penguins Updated Jun 14, 2004

    The return ticket from Budapest is cheaper than a single, normally when you buy it from the ticket desk and say cheapest, they will give you the return. You can try and re-sell the return ticket in a youth hostel if you need to.

    Zagreb's main train station (Glavni kolodvor) is located about a ten minute walk from the city's main square, Trg bana Jelacic. You can get here from many European cities. For details, check out the website below.

    Unfortunately, when I was in Zagreb in February of 2004, the building was under construction, so I wasn't able to appreciate its architecture.
