Once it's safe to travel, wanderers will flock to airports worldwide, eager to embark on their next journey. If you'd like yours to be Croatia (and you prefer a bird's eye view on your way over), we're bringing you a guide to the country's airports.

The logistics lowdown

Zagreb is Croatia's major airport.

Split, Dubrovnik, and Zadar follow Zagreb in size, with each featuring international flights to other major cities in Europe year-round. Next are Pula, Rijeka, and Osijek, followed by Brač - an island airport with domestic flights only.

Since Croatia's biggest airport is located in Zagreb, chances are you'll be flying to the capital, whether its your final destination or a stopover.

Pro tip: It's tempting to travel straight to the sea, but any visitor to Croatia would be missing out without exploring Zagreb and the continental regions, too!
