Disorganised journey

To be honest, I liked that I got the bus, and that was about it. It was so chaotic at Zagreb bus station that noone knew where the bus was going from - the driver and a couple of passengers helped me to get on the bus quickly....Chaos at Zagreb. The bus seats are too small. Not for me. I am tiny. Nearly everyone else, your average Balkan-sized man was too big for the seats. The guy sitting next to me took up part of my seat - not his fault, and not comfortable for either of us. It was hot and stuffy and smelled of smoke - when I got on, I thought you were actually allowed to smoke on board!

The ventilation in the bus was really bad, it was hard to breathe inside.

The ride was quick....Explained under number 4

...Jedina zamjerka sto vozač neman mikrofon da naglasi u koje mjesto staje jer puno ljudi spava tokom vožnje pa ga se ni necuje odozadi dok on sa svog sjedala kaze ( ako kaze ) di je stao . Uopce nije naglasio u koje mjesto je stajao sto je veliki problem za strance i turiste koji prvi put putuju .
