How to register:
You can register on our web site: 1st EUROMA Danube Operations management Workshop https://docs.google.com/a/net.efzg.hr/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfpK-nAqF6oArJHRmVNn_I_AoqG58iJEPzIAyfRpssIkx6yrw/viewform?c=0&w=1  
 
 
How to travel to Zagreb:
By plane - Zagreb airport
Taxi from the airport to center of the city is approximately 200 kn (app 27€), but there is a bus that goes every half an hour (30 kn) and goes to the Bus terminal in Zagreb. From there you can take tram number 6 to the center of the city depending where you will be staying. Tram ticket costs 10 kn.
 
By Bus
If you arrive by bus than from there take tram no. 6 to the center.
 
By Car
If you travel by car make sure that your accommodation permits parking as the parking rules in Zagreb are strict. 
 
 
Accommodation recommendation:
Hotel Dubrovnik
https://hotel-dubrovnik.hr/
Hotel is on the main square and it has parking near by, easy to get to the Faculty by tram number 17 or 1 (Station Savisce).

However, if you prefer cheaper stay I suggest AirB&B as many renters in the center of the city rent places.
 
 
We are looking forward to welcome you to Zagreb in March!
