You're kidding right?

The 15:58 'Croatia' is conditioned, comfortable, has a proper dining-car with white tablecloths, waiter service, hot dishes and beer or wine.

The train takes the LOVELY Semmering Railway between Vienna and Graz, did you know that is UNESCO-listed? See https:/…Semmering_railway

That's a HIGHLIGHT of your trip!

There's more scenery in Croatia around the Sava river.

And prices start at just €29 (or from €39 in first class!) at Austrian Railways www.oebb.at - you print your own ticket.

What's not to like?

I‘m not so excited about Zagreb – I think, Ljubljana has more charm!

Also the route is more scenic – make it a Vienna-Ljubljana-Zagreb day and have a few hours along the Ljubljanica-River.

The man in seat 61 has all the info for your train-adventure!

As mentioned, the direct train service to Zagreb runs via Graz and thus uses the famous and scenic mountain railway line over Semmering Mountain.

If time is important, then you might be better off taking an express bus.
