“How to get from the Split airport to the city center?” – one of the most frequently asked questions of the visitors arriving to this biggest airport on the Croatian coast. Lots of people get interested in finding this out, as the main bust station, the main railway station and the steamboat seaport to the Croatian islands are all located in the center of Split.

Thus, here are 5 trusted ways to get from the airport to the center of Split, starting from the cheapest one out there…

1 way: Public transportation

While being the cheapest, that is, by far, the least comfortable way of getting from the airport to the center of the city. By “public transport” we mean bus number 37, with the route going from Split to Trogir to Split, which stops by the airport, and bus number 38, going from Split to Resnik.

Those buses arrive by the airport every 20 minutes (this may vary from season to season).
