Getting to the city

Zagreb has an international airport with direct flights to most capitals and large cities in Europe and frequent flights to large airport nodes for trans-continent flights (Vienna, Frankfurt, Paris, London etc). The international airport Franjo Tuđman is situated around 15 km southeast of the Venue and downtown Zagreb and is easily and quickly reachable by airport shuttle or taxi.

It takes around 30 min to get to the center of the city both by taxi and by shuttle. The timetable for the bus is being adjusted to all aircraft arrivals and departures and the end stop is at Zagreb Main Bus Station.


It is important to note that Croatia is not part of the Schengen zone. However, EU citizens can easily enter with ID or passport and for non-EU citizens the same visa rules apply as for the rest of the EU. Moreover, a Schengen visa is usually enough to enter Croatia.

A visa is not required for U.S. and other non-EU passport holders for temporary tourist and business trips up to 90 days. All foreign citizens must register with the local police within 24 hours of arrival. Foreigners staying in hotels or other accommodations through a rental company are automatically registered by the hotelier or the rental company (check if your place of staying will do this for you). Otherwise, foreigners can also register at the local Ministry of Interior office. In Zagreb, the office is located at Petrinjska Street 30, phone +385 1 4563 111. It is very important to register, as failure to register constitutes a misdemeanor and a violator can be fined.
Entry requirements

When queuing at the Croatian border control, you should use different lanes to those specifically designated for EU, EEA, and Swiss citizens. Your passport may be stamped on entry and exit.
You may also need to:
  • show a return or onward ticket
  • Show proof of accommodation
  • show you have enough money for your stay
Also, please check if you have health insurance throughout your entire stay.

Your passport is considered valid if it meets these 2 requirements. It must be:
  • less than 10 years old on the day you enter (check the 'date of issue')
  • valid for at least 3 months after the day you plan to leave (check the 'expiry date')
Please contact your travel provider or embassy if you think that your passport does not meet both these requirements. Renew your passport if you need to.
