Getting to Dubrovnik Winter Festival by train

Sadly, the beautiful city of Dubrovnik is still not connected to a rail network, and therefore it makes it slightly trickier to reach. However, we wouldn't be featuring it if it wasn't worth it, so the effort of getting a direct bus from Zagreb or Split, both of which are connected to other European cities via the high speed network, is well worth it.

Please note that the bus service from Split/Zagreb is not included in your Eurail pass.
