Located at the Zagreb Fair on the banks of the Sava River, Zagreb Boat Show is a large nautical exhibition where you’ll find everything that a sailing, diving or water sports enthusiast could hope for. Now in its 26th year, this established boat show attracts shipbuilders and traders from around the world who gather to network, show off the latest in innovative boating and put their luxury vessels on display. The fair is a great opportunity to explore Croatian boating, whether you’re in the market to buy a yacht or some new diving equipment to use on your next trip around some of Europe’s best diving locations.
Zagreb Boat Show takes place from 22nd to 26th February 2017. To get to the venue, take tram numbers 7 or 14, or buses 109, 222, 219 or 220 to the Zagreb Fairground on the right bank of the Sava River. Tickets for the boat show are available from the official website. If you’d like to attend the show, fly into Pleso, Zagreb’s International Airport which is located around 17 kilometres away from the city centre. You may wish to check out the historic city centre before heading to the Boat Show so take the Airport Bus, which leaves every 30 minutes and head for the main bus station. From there, you have the choice of taking the tram, bus or mainline train to any zone in the city.
