How to get from the airport to the city center?

Zagreb

As Croatia’s largest airport, the Zagreb Airport Pleso is where most tourists will arrive in the country. It is situated 12km from the city center and one of the best ways to get from the airport to the city center is via a pre-booked transfer. You may also want to consider renting a car from one of the car rental companies, but if you opt in to use the airport bus (which can be found parked outside of the arrivals terminal), keep in mind that the trip to the city center will take up to 30 minutes.

Split

From the Split International Airport, you may take the bus to get to the city center. This is one of the cheapest options, although it may take up to an hour since the bus stops at every bus station and may see you changing buses in order to get to the city center. For a more convenient option, tourists may opt to use the Croatia Airlines bus, which is affordable and runs directly to the city center, albeit it’s only available after every Croatia Airlines flight. The fastest way to get to the city center from the Split airport is via a taxi, which can be found outside the airport and will get you to the city center in roughly 30 minutes.

Dubrovnik

Getting from the Dubrovnik airport to the city center can be done in a number of ways. If you’re heading to the Old Town and don’t mind waiting for a bus, it’s advisable to use the Airport Bus service since its cheap and will get you to the heart of the city center. You may also make use of the buses, which travel between the airport and the city center. Alternatively, tourists may make use of the variety of taxis parked outside of the arrivals terminal at the airport.

Zadar

Zadar Airport provides a public transport system operating bus transfers to and from the airport to the city center. Buses depart on a regular basis after every Croatia Airlines flight, which means that this is probably your fastest and most affordable means of getting to the city center.
