I know there are also buses between these cities, but I'm trying to find timetables for trains.

According to Seat 61,

A daytime train leaves Belgrade every day at 11:03 arriving Zagreb 18:11 & Ljubljana 20:56. It's a leisurely trip across the former Yugoslavia on a route once used by the Simplon Orient Express. Bring your own provisions and perhaps some beer or wine...

But what about the other direction, Zagreb to Belgrade? With quick look, I could not find that info on Seat 61, and the Croatian train company site doesn't show anything for Belgrade. Info from some official resource as well as recent first-hand experiences are both welcome.

  • Most (famous) trains run both directions and the Seat 61 site does not always mention the 'return to base' one.

You can find the schedules via the website of the Serbian Railways. Note that you have to use the Serbian spelling of Belgrade, i.e. BEOGRAD:

I entered your found train into the German travel site, and found that same train. Then I clicked the ⇅ arrows, (the ones that reverse the direction of search) and the results were alike. One day train and one overnight. 11:05 to 17:32 and 23:48 to 5:52.

I would suggest you to run the site for a day you want to travel, I checked it for a couple of days from now.

Internet search only but I do find the German rail site rather reliable. (I would try to book through one of the involved national rail sites if possible, not the German one.)

  • If you are talking about Bahn.de, mention it by name, because everyone knows it by that name. It certainly was an improvement, but keep your bloody answer.

  • Anyway, what I was really going to say: Thanks! Back in Zagreb, a hostel employee dug up and printed me the info from Bahn.de as well. Apparently hzpp.hr (in Croatian) somewhere said “international timetables” and that was just a link to Bahn.de!
