Croatia was chosen to host the first ever EFB Community Conference because of its positive example of successful accession negotiations with the EU. With a target date of 1 July 2013 for joining the EU, Croatia has set the example for the rest of the Western Balkan countries. By organising this event in Croatia, the EFB will acknowledge all the really positive changes that have happened here so far, and give its support to the work that still needs to be done. Croatia is also showing its support to the rest of the WB counties in their effort to introduce all the political, economic and social changes that are needed to become members of the EU.
Transfer and accommodation
for EFB Community members is organized by the European Fund for the Balkans.

Zagreb has a well-developed and efficient public transport system that consists of trams, buses and trains. The tram network operates 24 hours a day – from 4AM to 12AM there are 15 “day-time lines” (tram lines 1-9, 11-15 and 17), and from 12AM to 4AM there are 4 “night” lines (tram lines 31-34) which cover most of the day-time lines on a reduced (around 30-40 minute) frequency. Occasionally, buses replace trams on night lines. Tram line 3 does not operate Saturdays, Sundays and on public holidays. There are maps of the tram lines on almost every stop, so if you know the nearest stop to your destination you can simply figure out the shortest trip while you’re at the stop.
The kuna is the currency of Croatia since 1994 (ISO 4217 code: HRK). It is subdivided into 100 lipa. The kuna is issued by the Croatian National Bank and the coins are minted by the Croatian Monetary Institute.
