Today's route: Taxi from home to airport; flights Manchester - Frankfurt Airport - Zagreb Airport; airport bus; Zagreb Glavni Kolodvor - Zabok - Gornja Stubica - Zabok - Zagreb Glavni Kolodvor.
Flights were on time (probably because they didn't need to be). First time into Zagreb airport. The airport bus runs every half hour throughout the day and costs HRK25, pay on the bus. The main city bus station is about 10 minutes walk east of the main railway station, and you pass the Hotel Central on the way; this is not the cheapest place in town but it is extremely convenient for the station, has air-conditioned rooms (useful when temperatures are 30+degrees as they were this week) and a good buffet breakfast that starts at 06:00. An underbridge just outside Glavni Kolodvor is being partially rebuilt so there was single line working over it, causing delays which lost us our path on the single line towards Zabok, though the connections to both branches there were held as you would expect. Just time at Gornja Stubica for a couple of photographs.
