Zagreb bus station (Autobusni Kolodvor) is a large structure that would never win any architectural prizes. Built in 1987, it's all concrete and sharp angles but it has enough space for 88 terminals handling all international and domestic buses from Zagreb.
The terminal could desperately use an upgrade particularly towards making it more handicap-accessible. There are stairs and escalators everywhere but no elevators. Ticketing is on the first floor and the platform for departures is on the ground floor.
As is evident on the map above, the bus station is slightly east of the train station and northeast of the town centre (Trg Jelacica). It's walkable but a hub for Zagreb trams is right outside.
The Zagreb bus station is also where you get the bus to the Zagreb Airport.
The bus station is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The left luggage office in the Zagreb bus station is open 24/7. The price is 6Kn per hour for the first four hours and 4Kn for each hour thereafter. Items like skis and bikes are charged 10Kn per hour. You'll need to produce ID of some sort--usually a passport.
