Zagreb, the capital of Croatia spreads from the valley of Sava river to the hills of Zagrebacka gora. The city is an attractive touristic destination. It is mostly Middle European, but with a Mediterranean touch. The old part of the city consists of two medieval towns, located on neighboring hills. Below them is a busy downtown, where museums and theaters mix with shops, restaurants and an impressive number of coffee shops and bars. There are several beautiful parks, and a real forrest running from the hills right into downtown. Congress activities will take place in the lecture rooms of the Department of Mathematics, University of Zagreb, Bijenicka 30, situated in the northern, residential area overlooking downtown Zagreb.
