Getting around

Arriving by air

Zagreb is serviced by the Zagreb Airport, locally known as Pleso (IATA airport code: ZAG). It is located 17 km from the city center (about 25 minutes by car or bus). Useful links:

  • Zagreb airport - Zagreb Airport web site.
  • Croatia Airlines - the Croatian national airline company is a member of Star Alliance (partner airlines Air Canada, Air New Zealand, ANA, Asiana Airlines, Austrian, bmi, LOT Polish Airlines, Lufthansa, Scandinavian Airlines, Singapore Airlines, Spanair, TAP, Thai Airways International, United, US Airways and VARIG).
  • low cost airlines flying to Zagreb: Germanwings, Norwegian, easyJet
Transportation to/from the airport
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. (The approximate exchange rate as of February 2013 is 1 EUR = 7.6 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 Držića). It also makes a few stops (on request), one in New Zagreb and one close to the "Lisinski" concert hall. (If you are staying at the International Hotel, or coming directly to FER from the airport, this is where you should get off the bus - just ask the driver to let you out at "Lisinski" - this is about one block away and the hotel sign is already visible from there.)

The bus terminal at the Airport is located just outside the airport building. Buses run at half-hour intervals for most of the day. See bus schedule. Once at the Main Bus Station, there is a taxi station and a tram station right in front of the building.
A more comfortable option to get to the city from the airport is to take a taxi. The taxi terminal at the Airport is located just outside the airport building. Taxi ride from the airport to the city center costs approximately 160-200 Croatian kunas (22 - 26 €).


Arriving by car

Zagreb has excellent road connections to the rest of Europe. For planning your route, try ViaMichelin.com. For current road conditions and web camera views along Croatia's highways, check the web site of the Croatian Auto Club.
A valid driver's license, car papers and all relevant insurance documents are necessary to enter Croatia with a vehicle.
If you decide to arrive by plan and rent a car for local travel, you can do it at any major airport, as well as in the city, but it is generally a good idea to make your reservations in advance.
Croatian National Tourist Board has more information .

Getting around the town

FER, the conference venue, and most of the recommended hotels are located close to the center of Zagreb which is best explored on foot. If you decide to take a tram, a single tram ticket costs 12 HRK when bought in advance (kiosk or newspaper stand - "Tisak", "Duhan"), and 15 HRK when bought in the tram from the driver. Night fares cost approximately double. Remember to validate (stamp) your ticket once you get into the tram (look for an orange stamping machine at the front or rear of the tram). Stamp the ticket only once. The ticket is valid for 90 minutes when traveling in one direction. Another option is to buy an "e-ticket" card at a kiosk for 50 HRK (20 HRK for the card and 30 HRK initial credit, with the option to refill your credit at a kiosk) - in that case the ticket price is 10 HRK. If using the e-ticket card, validate your ticket by leaning it against an orange machine in the tram.

Several taxi operators can also be used. It is advisable to either order a taxi by phone or agree on the price before entering the vehicle to avoid the possibility of being cheated. Taxi fares in Croatian kuna (kn or HRK) can be found on these sites:
