Practical Info


The Republic of Croatia is a member-state of the European Union and is applying the European Union’s Common Visa Policy. This means that if you are traveling freely within Europe you (most likely) don't need visa for Croatia. Nevertheless please do check and contact us if you need one.

Local currency

The official currency in Croatia is Croatian Kuna (HRK). The exchange rate for Euro is approximately 1 EUR = 7.4 HRK.


Zagreb is well-connected with most European capitals and can easily be reached either by air or by train or car.

By air: The Zagreb international airport is located 17km south of the city. To travel from the airport to the city you have three options. You can take a bus to the main bus station and then tram no.6 to the city centre. Bus and tram tickets (30 and 4 HRK respectively) can be bought directly from the driver. The second option is to take a taxi (regular taxi costs cca 200 HRK, Uber costs 100 HRK). Finally, some city hotels have pick-up/drop-off service.

By train: The Zagreb main railway station is practically in the city centre, so depending on your accommodation you can either walk or take a tram for a couple of stations. Tram ticket (4 HRK) can be bought directly from the driver.

By car: Zagreb is the hub of five major Croatian highways, so reaching Zagreb by car is relatively easy. However, driving in the city centre is rather demanding exercise, so please have a GPS, lots of patience and check the parking options with accommodation of your choice. At the Rudjer Bošković Institute there is parking available.

Reaching the conference venue

Once in the city centre, locate the Zagreb Cathedral which is situated north from the main square - Trg bana Josipa Jelačića. The Rudjer Bošković Institute can be reached by buses 106, 201, 226 from the bus stop Kaptol just 100m north of Zagreb Cathedral and the ride takes approximately 10 minutes. The Institute is 4th bus stop from Kaptol. One way bus ticket costs 4 HRK and can be bought from the driver, but we recommend to buy it in advance from newspapers stand.
