I will hopefully be visiting Zagreb on a class trip in May. What are the visa requirements (briefly explain, Schengen? etc), what is the currency (Euro?) and what are fun things to do?
I'd just look it up but Croatia's recent addition to the EU has me unsure.
1) I don't know anything about visa requirements. However, we will be out of Schengen at least till 2015 or even more if Merkel says that we must stay by side.
2) Currency is Croatian Kuna(Hrvatska Kuna short HRK or KN), but I guess in Zagreb which is the capital of Croatia you can also pay in euros. Just take care about the currency list when get there and in case that it's necessary for currency exchange. 1 euro is around 7.66 HRK
3) What are the fun things to do... Well, I don't know. Maybe you should ask CroCHEF who lives near Zagreb.
Visit Kaptol, walk through Maksimir forrest, many city parks and park of nature Medvednica, pay 1 KN for visiting Dinamo in the Croatian league
, taste a nightlife of the city, the Tower and museum of Dražen Petrović, one of the best basketball players ever who played this game, etc.
I have never been on these places, that's something what I'd visit.
For the rest info, you should check out on the websites.
Here's the offical page of The Zagreb Tourist Board: http://www.zagreb-touristinfo.hr/?id=126&l=h http://www.panorama-zagreb.com/znamenitosti-zagrebahttps://zagreb.wikispaces.com/Lista+znamenitostihttp://www.hotel-international.hr/vodic-kroz-zagreb/znamenitosti
You can search for many attractions and events. I hope that I helped you to find something.
