Zagreb

Getting there

Main Train Station (Glavni kolodvor)

Zagreb’s train station (željeznički kolodvor) is not very user-friendly, but sees more traffic than other points of entry into the city. Changing currency: When exiting the tracks walk through the main hall to find an ATM machine in the left corner. A currency exchange is located in the international ticketing area as is another ATM. The Information office (Tel. (+385-1) 378 25 83. Open 05:00 - 23:00) is located between the main hall and domestic ticketing area (to your right as you exit the tracks). Buy your tickets online via www.hzpp.hr/en or download for free their mobile application HŽPP. The left luggage facilities (Garderoba) are available 24 hours and are to the left of the main hall as you exit the tracks. Each piece of luggage costs 15 - 25kn/per day. Getting to Town: Walk out the main entrance and survey your surroundings - this is the centre. To get to the main square, Trg bana Josipa Jelačića, take tram N°6 towards Črnomerec or tram N°13 heading towards Žitnjak. Taxis queue in front of the main hall and a ride into town will usually go along the most scenic of routes and will cost around 30kn. Getting around Town: Railroads are connected with almost all major cities in Croatia, train rides within and around the Zagreb area are faster and less expensive than other means of transport. There are also seasonal discounts and organised day trips where guests can see quite a lot in little time. You can travel in a couchette and take your car or motorbike on a train as well. Bike transport is charged 15kn inside the country and 5 € for international transport.And for all you pet lovers, bring your very best friend along but do know that you must have a mandatory veterinary booklet, small dogs are free of charge if kept in your lap or in a basket: Larger dogs must wear a muzzle and are charged at 50% of the standard price for tickets.

On my recent visit to Zagreb, Croatia; I traveled by EuroNight Zurich-Belgrade Express. This is a direct train from Zurich, Switzerland via Zagreb GLK to Belgrade, Serbia. Upon arrival in Zagreb GLK, few things foreign travelers should note. Ticket counters, Domestic & International ticket counters are separate and agents do not speak any foreign language such as English, German, etc. thus making it difficult to communicate. Zagreb GLK (Main Station) is reasonable and main tourist attractions are a short walk from the train station. While feeling somewhat un-safe at Zagreb GLK, foreign travelers should never let their guard down. The station could use better facilities, smoke free areas, etc.
