You can reach the city of Split from various directions:

from the capital city of Zagreb following Highway A1 (Zagreb-Split),
using the picturesque inland road routes (Zagreb – Karlovac – National Park Plitvicka jezera – Knin – Sinj – Split) or traveling along the stunning Adriatic coast from the north (Rijeka – Zadar – Šibenik – Split).

You can also arrive in Split with your car by taking one of the many domestic ferries (from Rijeka to Split, from Dubrovnik to Split) or a ferry from one of the major Italian harbors on the Adriatic coast (Pescara, Ancona, Bari). Note that availability of transport from Italian ports varies according to the season.
