I am planning on taking a train from Venice, Italy, to Rijeka, Croatia, using a train that travels through Slovenia. Where/ how is the best place to get my passport stamped to say that I have left the Schengen area once I get to Croatia? And how do I get my passport stamped when I get to Croatia? I am not planning on going via an airports.

At the border the police will come to you on the train. You can’t get over the border without getting stopped by police.

And there is progress-even for isolationist Brits: stamps are a thing of a century ago. Its now all electronic registrations. Once IN the combined Schengen zone, there are no standard checks anymore-just a few random, mostly due to covid or the streams of refugees from UKR.

Even this isolationist funny island in the North Sea did not want to personally see my passpt a week or 2 ago-only electronic on entry and nothing at all on exit.
