Here are some options how to get to Zagreb:

Pre-booked transfer

You can pre-book private or shared transfer:  the most hassle-free form of transportation between the Zagreb Airport and the city centre is a pre-booked transfer. Price for a transfer of 1 to 3 persons is about 35 Euro, for a group of up to 8 persons price is around 50 Euro. Check the googlesheet you received for colleagues arriving at the same time!

Airport bus Zagreb Airport (easy & cheap): 

The airport bus is parked outside the main arrival terminal (You can’t miss it). Busses leave every full and half hour and the trip to the main bus station takes about 30 minutes. From there, you have tram connections to the city centre and the main train station.

Tram number 6 for Črnomerec which will take you directly to the main city square or Ban Josip Jelačić Square where the Hotel Dubrovnik is situated. 

For departure times from Airport to the city centre, please see the following link  and specify your search FROM: ZAGREB ( AIRPORT ) HR TO: ZAGREB. Price for a one way ticket is 30 kn, about 4 EUR.

PLEASE note that after 8 pm, you have buses leaving shortly after arrival of scheduled flights. For the way back to the airport, you can find the schedule at the same link as above FROM: ZAGREB TO: ZAGREB ( AIRPORT). 


During the opening hours of the airport, you normally find quite a few taxis waiting outside the arrival terminal. The price for a trip to the city centre is around 150-200 Kuna or 20 to 30 Euro, depending on your final destination in Zagreb, remember to agree upon price before taking the trip. It is advised to take a cab from inside of the airport.

If you would like to get around the city there are a few taxi companies in Zagreb with very reasonable prices :

Radio Taxi Zagreb at +38511717
Taxi Cammeo at +38511212
Eco Taxi at +38511414

Nikolina's recommendation:

Cammeo or Eco as their prices are more affordable.

Zagreb Municipal Transit System ( ZET )

For getting around the city public transport is a very good option.
