Bus station Zagreb
The Zagreb bus station is a place where it's not a problem to "kill" the time even if you need to wait an hour or two. Station is located on a very busy location circulating a large number of people independently of the station itself. For many of them, this station is on their way to work or school. Therefore, there's no need to be surprised by the high frequencies of the population.
Equipped with bakeries, local grocery stores, cafes, ATMs, the post office, exchange office - it gives you an opportunity to do whatever you need to.
In addition, there is the shop of the most popular Croatian candy brand named - Kraš. So in case you forgot to buy a souvenir, which can be a local dessert, you can be sure you'll find something sweet & delicious in Kraš.
If you need to get rid of your luggage there's a wardrobe at the bus station and in case you need a parking lot one is just behind the station. Plus, the bus station is situated close to the railway, so in the case of combined transport the fact that the stations are close to each other is a great advantage for travelers.

Apart from that, if you're a huge fan of surfing the Internet, make sure you have your own Internet connection.
Many carriers have equipped their buses with toilet for passengers. Besides that, it's not so often and that's why it's not too smart to count on that possibility. That's also the reason we suggest you to use the toilet which you can find at the bus station just before you sit in the bus.
Why you should travel from Zagreb to Munich by bus
Contemporary equipment, comfort, professionalism and driver experience, unladen driving and affordable ticket prices guarantee a safe and comfortable ride and are the reason why the bus from Zagreb to Minhen is the best choice. Although the line is a little bit longer, that's no obstacle for choosing the buses and the fact that driving is safer and more comfortable compared to some other options.
If we compare a bus with some other kind of transport, we'll see that airplane tickets, ranging from 200 EUR up to 270 EUR, are obviously much more expensive than those for the bus.
Also, the plane doesn't land in the city center. Forget it! You better prepare yourself to plan the transfer from the airport to the accommodation. Clearly, it's an additional cost, isn't it?
The car on the Zagreb - Munchen route is not the happiest choice either. Calculate that by choosing a car, you're choosing to drive literally for hours on the highway.
It's a fairly straightforward drive that usually doesn't "lean" to the driver. And by the way, don't forget to add the cost of a toll to the fuel cost.
The train could seem like the best option on this trip from Zagreb. Even though it goes on a daily basis and offers a somewhat specific driving experience, it will also make your trip much, much longer. The price of a return ticket for train is around 105 EUR. For the comparison, if you pay a two-way bus ticket at the most expensive price, it'll cost you about 65 EUR. After all, it's best to look at the price list. Agree?

The metropolis, Zagreb, was first mentioned in 1094. when Biskupija was founded. It is located on the slopes of Medvednica on the one hand and on the other on the coast of the Sava River. Soon after you start your Zagreb tour it will justify its title of a central center of Central Europe.
Its center can be divided into two parts - Upper and Lower Town. The Lower Town is dominated by the main square - Ban Josip Jelačić Square and the Zagreb Cathedral.
In the Upper Town the most important subjects are St. Marko Square and the church of St. Marko.
Besides visiting the city center, go to Lake Jarun or Bundek depending on the available time. Although the choice between these two options is not easy, whatever you choose you won't make a mistake. If you are not in the mood for a walk in nature, we suggest a theater or a visit to an art gallery or museum. In the recent times, the most popular are these three: Museum of Illusions, the Technical Museum and the Museum of Interrupted Connections. In addition, ask locals about the most interesting events in the city.
If you want to explore this country further from its capital, we suggest you to visit cities and towns: Rijeka (famous port), Pula, NP Plitvice lakes, Split, Zadar, Sibenik, Varazdin, Osijek and Pozega. These cities and places didn't disappoint us and somehow we believe that neither will they leave you indifferent.

Since 1175. Minhen has the status of a city, more precisely the "northernmost Italian city". Today it is the third largest city in Germany and has roughly 1.3 million inhabitants.
Its specialty is the 'weissbier' beer and the Oktoberfest - a famous beer festival whose tradition is over 200 years old.
The mentioned beer doesn't consist of wheat. Specifically, because of the different process of production, ie lack of pasteurisation, it can't stand for too long. This is why it's not exported anywhere outside the country or even across the country.
By the beer and the festival, Minhen is full of interesting sights. The Marienplatz square, the Hofbrauhaus beer garden and the Justizpalast Justice Palace are just a fraction of what Minhen has to offer to its visitors. Well, there is also a wonderful clock, Glockenspiel, who, every day before the dawn, has his own play.
Further, the advantages of Minhen are: multiethnicism and multiculturalism, bicycle routes, well-organized public transport, low crime rates, a large number of born and rich cultural offerings. Simply Minhen deserves to be visited and sighted even apart from the famous Oktoberfest.
