Unfortunately we did not find any direct routes matching your search criteria! Here is what to do:
  1. Try to search for a bus to the nearest larger city e.g. Rijeka, Zagreb, Zadar or Split and then find a bus from there to your final destination
  2. If this does not give you any options matching your requirements from a time perspective, you should consider using other means of transportation, renting a car would probably be the best option.
  3. If you are travelling to or from an airport in Croatia, you will have to travel to the nearest larger city and then change bus there to reach your final destination.
