Varaždin is located in the northern part of Croatia, and is distanced 90 kilometers from Zagreb. Participants can arrive to the tournament by private or public transport. Varaždin is well connected by bus and train lines with capital Zagreb, although train connection is the best option as the ride will take longer then the bus one.
The LOC will provide assistance to teams for booking airport shuttles from the Zagreb International Airport at approximately €35-40 / US$ 40-45 per person each way - the LOC will be providing more information on this service on request. Costs range from €80 / US$ 91 for a car-ride (up to 3 passengers) or €130 / US$ 148 for a van of up to 8 passengers. The Shuttle takes around 50 minutes. Bus tickets are also available at around €20 / US$ 23 per person departing on a less frequent basis.
During the event, teams staying at the official accommodation will be able to walk to the course daily and will be shuttled by the LOC to the players party if the location demands it.
Teams staying outside the official accommodation will be fully responsible for any and all transport logistics and costs. Players should not plan to rely on public transport, as there are minimal network links to the course.
Other airports that could be used for your arrival are Ljubljana, Slovenia (2:30 by car), Rijeka, Croatia (3:00), Budapest, Hungary (3:15), Vienna, Austria (3:30), Osijek, Croatia (3:30) and Zadar, Croatia (3:30) could also be used.
