Thanks to the new motorway it is easy to get to different destinations within Croatia. Because of geographical barriers there are many tunnels, bridges and viaducts. Nevertheless, the whole motorway is monitored and pretty safe. It is a toll road system. If you are coming to Split from direction of Zagreb you can also take D1 state road, or D8 state road if coming from direction of Rijeka.


The Split Bus Terminal is well connected to different European destinations. The terminal is located across the road from the Split ferry port which makes it easier to get onto the ferry to islands. Bus services are frequent and regular with towns in Croatia, and abroad.
