The EuroVelo 5 route in Croatia takes you through the beautiful region of eastern Croatia along the Danube and Drava Rivers. You enter through the beautiful region of the nature park of Kopački Rit, one of the most important, largest and most attractive preserved intact wetlands in Europe. The route will introduce you to the history of major cities (Osijek, Vukovar, …) and to their gastronomy. The hospitality of the local people will make your cycling relaxing and fun. The route is completely flat and passes along many natural, cultural and historical attractions of eastern Croatia.

Public Transport and Bicycles in Croatia

In Croatia, new trains, both regional and InterCity trains, offer plenty of space for bicycles. For older trains, the situation is different. HŽ Passenger transport offers the opportunity to transport bicycles in all trains as luggage. That requires the bicycles to be disassembled and packaged so they can be stored in the passenger's section or in a specially designated area for luggage. Bikes can be transported in certain trains which have a coach with a designated area for storing bicycles (up to 10 bicycles). A list of these trains is available here. The bike transportation fee on all of the international routes is the equivalent of €5, and the tickets can be bought, just like train tickets, at the international ticket sale counter. The price of transporting a bicycle in Croatia is 15 kuna regardless of the distance covered in kilometres.

The transport of bikes on buses is possible as well, including Flixbus (www.flixbus.hr), Autotrans Rijeka for transport to the island of Brač (www.autotrans.hr) and on the bus lines of ZET in the city of Zagreb (numbers: 102, 103 and 105) to Medvednica Nature Park and the top of Sljeme.
