Zadar Train Station

The train station (which can be found opposite the coach station - see above) has a few (slow) routes to some other cities in Croatia.

Trains are not as popular as coaches, as they are slow, sometimes have no aircon and are not comfortable. But you will have the advantage of looking out of the window and admiring the views.

A train to Zagreb will take about 5.5 hours (or 8.5 hours on overnight trains). A train to Split will take about 3.5hours.
