Music festivals in Croatia have been the newest trend to sweep the nation.
From coastal locations to inland spectacles, music festivals are a dominating force in the summer. So how do you get there?
Two of the most popular music festival locations are situated along the coast of Croatia in Tisno and Novalja.
While it might seem at first that most everything along the coast is easy to get to, its not, and we’re here to tell you why.
First up is Tisno. Tisno is a small municipality located in Šibenik-Knin County that is located partially on the mainland and partially on the island of Murter.
While the town is located just an hour and a half drive from Split (and around 120 kilometers away), you’d be surprised at how difficult it actually is to get there. Unfortunately, there is no direct bus that will take you to the town of Tisno from Split, meaning that you’ll have to take a bus to Kapela (Tisno R) station which is located about 6 kilometers from the town. A “bus station” located on a desolate coastal road, taxis are not easy to come by here, and unless you have a phone number to call, you’ll be quickly out of luck getting into the town for the festival or to your accommodation. What fun is that?
Novalja on the other hand is more accessible than Tisno, but the journey will take you twice as long.
Novalja is a town in the north on the island of Pag. While the drive alone will take you about two and a half hours, the idea of this bus journey is sure to turn you off.
Once again, there are no direct bus lines from Split to Novalja, which means that you’ll have to take a few buses just to get there. Firstly, you’d have to take a three hour bus ride from Split to Zadar that will cost you between 70 and 100 kuna (let’s not forget about extra charges for baggage).
From Zadar, you will then have to change buses and take a new bus from Zadar to Novalja which will take you another hour and a half and cost you another 70 kuna.
While the bus station in Novalja is not in the center of town, you’ll have to calculate in spending a steep festival taxi fare just to get you to your accommodation or the festival grounds.
Once again, who wants to go through all of that trouble?
Daily car rentals will cost you upwards of 100 euros plus fuel, and furthermore, if you’re traveling in groups to the festival, who wants to deal with the hassle of ensuring you’ll all make it there in one piece?
