If you are not in a hurry, taking the train from Split to Zagreb, despite the fact it is not the most popular option, is a great experience!

The service is slow though as you travel the 400km at the speed of cca 60m/h - but travelling trough the, to visitors unknown rural parts of the country untouched by civilization, is amazing.

The train takes approximately 6 and a half hours along the coast, trough mountains and finally trough green flats as you reach Zagreb.
