Hi all :)

You guys seem like a pretty knowledgable bunch, so I thought I'd see what you think...

I'm attending the La Tomatina festival just outside of Valencia this year. I'll be in Valencia, Spain, until the 28th of August. After that, I would like to attend the International Puppet Festival in Zagreb, Croatia. This starts at the end of August and continues until about the 5th of September.

What do you think is the easiest way to get there? The shortest/cheapest route I can find is catching at Ryan Air flight on the 29th to Bologna, Italy, then catching an overnight train from there to Zagreb, Croatia, which take about 12 hours.

Is there an easier, more direct route? Or will i spend almost a day in transit?

Also, anyone who's been to Zagreb/Croatia, any tips on non-touristy things to do?

Thanks for your help!

hey, im going from portugal to croatia at around the same time and i didnt find anything cheaper than flying to milan and getting the night train to zagreb...... i couldnt find anything cheaper either!!

yeah, that sounds a good option. there aren't low cost flights from valencia (or nearby) to croatia, so ur trip should take at least 2-3 steps.

try to find a good combination considering Budapest (hungary) and Viena (Austria) both with more low cost conections.

good luck and enjoy!!

Yeah, I was considering going through Milan, but the Ryan Air flights are actually cheaper (by about 50euro I think) to fly through Bologna instead. The train trip is pretty similar, all involve connections.

@Tigasista & Jacqui: Germanwings has flights from both Lisbon and Barcelona to Zagreb.
