Croatia does not currently have any high-speed lines. The main international lines are the NW-SE Ljubljana – Zagreb – Vinkovci – Belgrade line and SW-NE Rijeka – Zagreb – Budapest line. The Croatian network is mainly a single-track and not electrified. The main NW-SE line is the only one that is mostly double-tracked. It has also been modernised to a speed of 160 km/h on some sections. The route is, however, still not competitive compared to road transport in terms of travel time.

Some analyses and preparatory planning works were conducted in the area of HS rail, especially on the Rijeka – Zagreb Corridor, however, the project has been suspended due to the financial constraints.
