Travel from Zagreb to Opatija

Hello,

Thank you.

Bus company Pleso Prijevoz run one daily bus direct from Zagreb airport to Rijeka at 15.30. You can then take #32 bus which runs about every 20 minutes from Rijeka to Opatija.

Alternatively, take a bus into Zagreb bus station and another on to Opatija from there.

The best way to travel from Zagreb to Opatija is by bus (with the airport shuttle also having its end stop at the main station), and the fastest bus would be one to Rijeka, then onwards by either taxi or local bus to Opatija.

For buses check www.akz.hr.

The buses from the airport leave all the time as there are airplanes landing.

At Foodscientist F: you will not need a reservation for a trip to Rijeka in October, unless it's Friday afternoon. for reservations, you will have to but your ticket one day ahead at the Zagreb bus station.

In Rijeka, bus #32 has an official 30+ min interval (or something like that) but you could face delays of more than 30 min (happens). And it may be quite busy, depending on your time of arrival, as it's the only city bus line between Rijeka and Opatija/Istria. If you'll be arriving after a long flight, then a ~2 hour bus ride to Rijeka, it might be better to get a taxi in Rijeka. Don't worry, they'll be waiting at the bus station in Rijeka (called Žabica). :) The ride is pretty straightforward, almost not leaving the main street, going close to the sea most of the time. You can even smell it.

I haven't ridden in a taxi that far, but would expect it to cost 10-15 EUR. City bus ride would be ~2 EUR (one way) and would take some 30-40 min. Btw, if you do go for the bus, here's the schedule - autotrolej.hr/Download/…32_32A1.PDF. And keep in mind bus #32 doesn't stop at Žabica, you'll have to walk some 100-150 m. It's sort of an express line, not stopping in all the stations. To make sure, you should press a button when you need to get off (or ask someone to help you).

Some intercity busses from Zabica to Istra stop in Opatija so that too would be an option. Taxi is around 100 Kuna or 15 Euro

Truly sad to hear about that.My loath towards these grade A rodents is higher than inflation of Zimbabwe.

If you have 8 minutes shoot an email to info-rijeka@taxi-cammeo.hr describing the event (date,time,route).If that douche has previous complaints maybe they will rocket his rear into atmosphere.As a sour cherry on the top add this discussion to it.
