    Route from Italy:

  • For Istria: Follow the direction of Koper (Slovenia) and Pula
  • For Dalmatia: Follow the direction to the highway A1 Zagreb-Split, or the main coastal cities Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik.

  • From Central Europe to Croatia:

  • For Zagreb, from Ljubljana (Slovenia) or Maribor (Slovenia)
  • For Dalmatia, via Ljubljana (SLO) but bearing in Postojna, Rijeka, and continue to Istria and Dalmatia.

During the summer months traffic at the border is heavier, so it supplements and makes connection between the two European routes: (E-59) Maribor-Zagreb-Split and (E-65) Rijeka-Split-Dubrovnik. In summer season, there are possible longer traffic jams at two tunnels St. Rok and Little Kapela. It is recommended to go by alternative directions across state roads.
