About the station


Six things worth knowing if you will be using Zagreb Glavni kolodvor train  station:

(1) The electronic departure screen is confusing, because the track/platform info will have two numbers.

The number on left is the platform number and the number on the right is the track number - at Croatian stations these numbers are different

However, if you're not used to the system (we weren't and got very confused) the trick is to hone in on the platform number -  which is the number on the left.

You don't have to worry about the track numbers, when you're trying to find your train from the the main station building.

Then when you're on the platform, you can use the track number to find your train - but don't be overy concened about this, it's not a particularly large station.

Only platforms (perons) 2 and 3 have separate tracks - the track info is similar to how some platforms in other countries are differentiated by 'a' or 'b' etc.

So the track info is in effect telling you to wait in the middle, or at either end of these platforms.

(ii) The platform numbers on the paper departure sheets can differ to those on the electronic departure board, and if they do it is the number on the electronic departure board that will be correct.

(iii) You may see some old departure posters around the station that show the departure times, platforms/tracks and formations of the international trains.
If they look old then ignore them, as they have outdated information.

(iv) As you head from the departure hall to the tracks/platforms you will exit the departure hall on to platform 1.

Turn right and walk along platform 1 to access platform 4 and 5.

Turn left and walk along track 1 to access platform 6.

So platforms 1, 4, 5 and 6 have step free access from the street.

You need go down the stairs and use the subway to access tracks platfforms 2 and 3, these platforms have no escalator or lift access.

(v) Facilities at the station are comparatively limited,.

There is no left luggage office or info desk and few food/drink outlets, aside from an excellent value snack bar on the main concourse – so good that it’s popular with commuters and lengthy queues can build up.

(vi) For all of the reasons above, allow more time than you think you will need to catch a train.

We arrived at the station 15 mins before our train was due to depart, thinking 'it’s a comparatively small station so that will be fine'.

Then had to abandon the slow moving coffee queue, got confused by the departure board, initially couldn’t work out where track 4 was and nearly missed the train – and we weren’t the only ones.

To the city centre:

If you don’t have heavy luggage etc, it’s an easy and very pleasant 12-15 min walk to the main city square in the heart of Zagreb.

Simply exit the station and walk straight ahead of you, keeping the gardens on your left.
