ZAGREB - PLITVICE Lakes National Park: train - bus

dizzychick @ 07-07-2008 11:03

Hi, I would like to travel from Zagreb to Plitvice for just one day but the nearest train station I can find is Vrhovi-Plitvi Jezera. I understand that this is about 17 Km away from the park though, is this correct? I have heard that the best way to get to Plitvice from Zagreb and back is by bus, how long does it take by bus from Zagreb to get to Plitvive? How often do the buses run and how much does it cost?

Have a look at this information:

Journey time: 2:20 h. Price: less than EUR 15, one-way.
Buy the ticket at the bus station in Zagreb or in Plitvice at the bus driver.
