Travel to Venue
Getting to Zagreb by airUseful links:
- Croatia Airlines - national airline company is a regional member of Star Alliance with the following partner airlines: Air Canada, Air New Zealand, ANA, Asiana Airlines, Austrian, bmi, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, South African Airways, Spanair, SWISS, TAP Portugal, THAI, United, US Airways, Adria Airways and Blue 1.
- Zagreb airport - Zagreb Airport is called Pleso (airport code: ZAG). It is located 17 km from the city centre (about 25 minutes by car or bus).
The cheapest option to get to the city is by public transportation. There is an airport shuttle bus, operated by "Pleso prijevoz". Please note that public transportation fares are only payable in Croatian Kuna (HRK). A one-way ticket costs 30 HRK and may be bought from the driver. (Approximate exchange rate as of October 2007 is 1 EUR = 7.4 HRK and 1 USD = 5.3 HRK.)
The bus has two terminals, one located at the Airport, and the other, located at the Main Bus Station in Zagreb (Autobusni kolodvor, Avenija Marina Drzica). The bus terminal at the Airport is located just outside the airport building. Buses run at half-hour intervals. See bus schedule.
Once at the Main Bus Station bus station, you can take a tram to your hotel. If you decide to take a tram, a single tram ticket costs 6.50 HRK when bought in advance (kiosk or newspaper stand - "Tisak", "Duhan"), and 8.00 HRK when bought from the driver. Remember to validate (stamp) your ticket once you get into the tram (look for an orange stamping machine). The ticket is valid for valid for 90 minutes when travelling in one direction.
A more comfortable and more expensive option to get to the hotel from the airport or from the Main Bus Station is to take a taxi.
Getting to Zagreb by carA driver's licence, car papers and all relevant insurance documents (except for countries that have other regulations) are necessary to enter Croatia with a vehicle.
If you decide to rent a car, you can do it at the airport, as well as in the city, but it is generally a good idea to make your reservations in advance.
