July 17, 2020 – FlixBus proves once again that it is an essential segment in the development of Croatia’s tourist offer with the addition of new destinations.

HRTurizam reports that by re-establishing a green network throughout Europe and connecting Croatia with numerous European destinations, FlixBus returns as a crucial member to bus passenger transport this tourist season.

Although Flixbus is not welcomed by the ministers of the Croatian government, in line with the increased interest of passengers traveling in the direction of Kvarner and Istria, FlixBus is introducing new destinations from July 17 and increasing the frequency of departures.

Rijeka, Crikvenica and Opatija are additionally connected with Munich and Berlin, and passengers have day and night lines at their disposal that connect Pula, Rovinj and Rijeka directly with Vienna and Budapest, while on the route Prague – Rijeka, they are looking for more seats.

˝FlixBus, as a strong European brand, thanks to its wide network, high frequency and affordable and quality service during all these years, has established itself as an important segment in the development of Croatia’s tourist offer. And in these challenging times for all of us, we strive to respond positively to the needs of our passengers for travel and to update our offer while respecting all safety measures constantly,” said Ante Grbesa, director of FlixBus CEE South region.

The cities of Istria and Kvarner are currently connected with Slovenia, Austria, Germany, the Czech Republic and Hungary. Direct connections with destinations such as Ljubljana, Maribor, Munich, Berlin, Prague, Vienna or Budapest provide passengers with easy access at affordable prices, and Rijeka, along with Zagreb and Split, is the most frequent hub of FlixBus this season as well.

HRTurizam writes that perhaps the Croatia National Tourist Board could see this opportunity to advertise open lines to the same markets through cooperation with FlixBus. Apart from being a European brand and an extremely extensive network, this year, Croatia’s advantage as a car destination has been expressed like never before. 

Until this year, the increase in the number of tourists arriving from abroad by FlixBus buses, from season to season, has grown by up to 80% to certain destinations. The FlixBus green bus network extends to 29 European countries and connects 2,000 destinations with 350,000 daily lines.
