Two direct trains a day take you to Rijeka, the third largest city, biggest port and important tourist travel hub in Croatia. 

You can travel to Rijeka with up to 30% discount. Young people in groups of 6 or more have a 70% discount. If you travel in a group, a good alternative is also a City Star International ticket.

The railway line to Rijeka was built in 1873, providing Rijeka with a direct connection to Vienna and thus increasing its city status. Today, Rijeka is a renowned port and the economic heart of Istria. For passengers from Slovenia it is often a springboard, a place where they leave terra firma and continue their journey (vacation bound) on one of many boats or ferries. You might take a short journey to the nearby islands, or perhaps a mini cruise to Greece. Since the railway station and port are closely connected, you will not experience any problems changing modes of transport.
