How to reach us?
As the EMRC 2020 Opening Ceremony will be held in Pula (see “Location – Opening Ceremony”), we need to provide you with some basic information about possible travel options which could help you while organising your trip to Croatia. Keep in mind that the bus transport from Pula to the congress venue is organised by us and is included in the participant fee!
Travelling with other EGEAns is always amazing, so we opened a FORUM where you can find your travel partners, but also discuss different travel options with other people and ask questions regarding your travels to EMRC 2020. The exact location of Opening Ceremony in Pula will be announced next week, so stay tuned!
TRAVELLING TO PULA BY CAR
We can just tell you that Croatian highway system is well-organised, so discuss your trip with other EGEAns, make a small car-family, find your route to this LOCATION, and see you in Pula. There will be plenty of free parking space on both opening ceremony and congress locations!
TRAVELLING TO PULA BY BUS
There are many bus connections to Pula from different European cities, so check if your city is one of those. If not, the best option for you is to travel to Rijeka, Zagreb or Zadar and take a bus to Pula from one of those cities. FlixBus and GetByBus are the best ticket providing operators that you can use in Croatia, so use those two while searching for tickets from all the mentioned Croatian cities.
GOOD TO KNOW: If you are buying a ticket online, you can use the student discount price, but bring your student card in case somebody asks you to show it. If you are buying a ticket at the bus station, also ask for a student discount and show your student card (doesn’t have to be ISIC).
