Getting to Split

Most flights to Croatia operate via Germany (Frankfurt and Munich).

Split has an airport and it is best to fly directly to Split if in any way possible. If there are no direct flights to Split and you need to go via Zagreb there are three direct flights every day.
 
If you can't reach Split by plane from Zagreb, it is better to take the bus than the train. In this case, be sure to take the direct bus (otherwise it will take almost 7 hours). The direct bus takes slightly under 5 hours, which is why it is recommended to travel by plane if possible.
