About the station

Worth knowing if you will be using Zagreb Glavni kolodvor train  station:

(i) The electronic departure screen is confusing, as under the track column there will be two numbers – the number to the left is the number of the track/platform that your train will be departing from.

(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If they look old then ignore them, as they have outdated information.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 track 1.
Turn right and walk along track 1 to access track 4.

Turn left and walk along track 1 to access track 5.

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

Tracks 1, 4 and 5 have step free access from the street.

(v) Facilities 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.
