The journey from Budapest to Zagreb, Croatia by car was pretty uneventful until we reached the  centre of Zagreb.

Satnav got us out of Budapest onto the motorway/freeway quite easily. It was sunny but cold when we left Budapest at around ten in the morning. We struggled a bit choosing the right lane coming off the bridge crossing the River Danube into Buda and the impatient traffic behind were honking their horns. The Hungarian country-side was attractive but the drive a little tense because of extreme cross winds.

We were surprised to have to show our passports three times, crossing from Hungary into Croatia. The last time we had shown our passports was Dover, UK, nearly three weeks earlier, despite visiting France, Belgium, Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Slovakia and Hungary. We then  remembered that Croatia was not yet part of the EU

For me, the Rough Guides article brought back vivid memories of a delightful few days in Zagreb last year, on our seven week road journey from Bath, UK to Cyprus. See Taking the Slow Road to Cyprus.

In case you missed it the other day, I reblogged an excellent article on Croatia published by China Global Times.

Any thoughts?
