Venue: Zagreb

Zagreb is a central European city with a charming combination of Western European business style and Mediterranean informality. Zagreb is also one of Europe's oldest cities and one of Europe's youngest capitals. Every visitor will find a favorite street, park, or square, be it behind the well-preserved walls of its romantic Upper Town, or in a daily hustle and bustle of cafes and stores in its Downtown. Also available are excellent restaurants, museums, theaters, and sports facilities. Further on, the wonderful coast of northern Adriatic, as well as the exceptional Plitvice Lakes National Park, are just a few hours' drive away.

Local transportation to/from the airport

Zagreb Airport is located 17 km from the centre of the city (about 25 minutes by bus).


The cheapest option to get to the city is to take an airport shuttle bus, operated by "Croatia Airlines".

The bus has two terminals, one located at the Airport terminal, and the other, located the center of Zagreb, at the Central Bus station (Autobusni kolodvor, Avenija Marina Drzica). The bus terminal at the Airport is located just outside the airport building. A one-way ticket costs 25 HRK and may be bought from the driver. Buses run at half-hour intervals. See bus schedule.

Once at the Central bus station, you may take a tram to your hotel. The tram ticket costs 6.50 HRK when bought in advance (kiosk or newspaper stand), and 8 HRK when bought from the driver. [Do NOT use trams without a valid ticket -- if caught, you pay a fine of 150 HRK on the spot.] Please note that public transportation fares are only payable in Croatian Kuna (HRK).


A more comfortable and more expensive option is to take a taxi. The taxi terminal at the Airport is located just outside the airport building, but BE WARNED: the drivers often take advantage of arriving travelers and may charge you as much as a double normal fare to get to the city.

For those who wish to take a taxi, we suggest that you pre-order a taxi at a fixed price of 180 HRK (or 25 EUR). Taxi may be pre-ordered a few days before you leave for Zagreb by sending an e-mail to milan.j@vip.hr or by phone +385 91 200 30 40.
In your e-mail, please note that you are attending ConTEL 2003, specify your name, the date of your arrival and your flight number. You should receive a confirmation that your request is accepted. You may use this taxi service during your stay and on your departure from Zagreb as well.
