PRIZNA-ŽIGLJEN FERRY SCHEDULE – CLICK HERE!

…………………………………………………………………………

HOW TO GET TO METAJNA ON PAG?

From the direction of Zagreb: A1 motorway – exit Žuta lokva-Senj – Prizna/Žigljen ferry – Metajna – 219 km

Alternative route from Zagreb: A1 motorway, exit Posedarje via Pag Bridge, 70 km to Metajna from the exit Posedarje. This route takes approx. 30 minutes longer, but you do not have to wait for the ferry.

From the direction of Dubrovnik, Split, Zadar: A1 motorway, exit Posedarje via Pag Bridge, 70 km to Metajna from the exit Posedarje.

Important note: Due to possible traffic jams on the Prizna-Žigljen ferry, we recommend, especially to the participants coming on the day of the race from the direction of Zagreb, to take the alternative Pag Bridge route, along A1 motorway, exit Posedarje (245 km) + 70 km on local roads. This route is longer, but it takes the same amount of time as the Prizna-Žigljen ferry route, it is not more expensive as there is no ferry fee, and it is certainly the safest route. The return trip will not be a problem because the participants will be leaving at different times, not causing ferry delays. The best option is to come the day before the race and enjoy the excellent accommodation offer.
