The main stations to aim for when travelling to Croatia:
Trieste, Pula and Rijeka.

Travel Croatia to Zagreb, Italy to Venice, and Slovenia to Ljubljana, are good way-points on the journey, and then the regional train service onwards to local centres, Pula and Rijeka.

For an interesting variation on all of this; travel by train to Venice,
then take the ferry service across the Adriatic to Trieste, Koper, Porec, Rovinj, Umag and Pula.

Depending on your departure point, the journey will probably involve an overnight sleeper.

The cabins can be as single, doubles or the standard Couchette style, of up to six sharing.

Sleepers are the most refined and comfortable way to travel:

•A cosy 1-berth or 2-berth and, occasionally, a 3-berth room.

• Proper made-up beds, including mattress, pillow and blanket or duvet.

• Washbasin, towels and complimentary toiletries.

• During the day, the beds usually fold away to leave sofa-style seating and a small table.

• Sometimes a light breakfast is included in the fare.

• On some routes, ‘train hotels’ offer a deluxe option with en-suite shower and toilet.

Couchettes offer more basic, lower-cost sleeping accommodation:

• Compartments contain either 4 or 6 bunks.

• Each bunk is a padded platform with a pillow, sheet and blanket.

• Each berth has its own reading light.

• Washrooms and toilets are at the end of the carriage.

• They’re a great option if you’re travelling as a family or group of friends.

• Single travellers share the room with other people.

• Single-sex couchettes are available on some trains.

• On certain overnight trains there may also the option of travelling in an open carriage on airline-style reclining seats. Ideal for budget travel.

• Sleepers and 4-berth couchettes are deemed first class travel.

• Six-berth couchettes and reclining seats are standard class tickets and therefore offer the lowest fares.
