When since a few years ago a new high way that connects the southest point of Croatia to the northest was open, it is far more easy and less adventurous to reach Croatia from north European countries.
To reach the middle Dalmatian islands, Croatian hot spot, it would be wise to drive all the way down to Split where you can take ferry to the island of your choice.
The rail network connects all major Croatian cities, except Dubrovnik (you can take a train to Split then
one of the frequent buses or the more scenic ferry to Dubrovnik, the train station is at the pier). There are direct lines from Austria, Czech Republic, Switzerland, Germany, Hungary, Slovenia, Italy, Bosnia and Herzegovina,
Serbia, and Greece. There are indirect lines from almost all other European countries. If you're travelling from northeast Italy - perhaps from Venice or Trieste - this can add on quite a few hours to your journey, in which case it is better to travel by bus
