Although Croatia's capital is easily walkable, nearly all trams cross the main square allowing easy access to most parts of the city. Don't forget that you can take the funicular from Ilica to the Upper Town. If you're going to Mirogoj Cemetery or the city's southern districts over the Sava, buses are the best bet.
Tram Nos.2 and 6 run three stops from the bus station to the train station, Glavni kolodvor. No.6 passes through Jelačić, the city’s crossing point. Buses serve outlying areas, many setting off from the ranks on the suburban side of the train station. Electronic cards are being brought in, valid for trams, buses and the funicular, to replace paper tickets. These cost 50kn from kiosks, including 30kn worth of travel. Touch in as you board. Details of tariffs, routes and timetables can be found at www.zet.hr.
Taxis are picked up from ranks such as the station and just off Jelačić. The standard rate is 19kn plus 7kn per kilometre, hiked up 20 per cent 10pm-5am, Sundays and holidays. Luggage is 3kn per piece. Call one on 01 66 800 800 or simply 970.
