Varaždin, nestled in the northern region of Croatia, is a mere 90 kilometers from Zagreb and is well connected with the country's capital. The best option to arrive in the city is by bus connection from Zagreb, while the train is also available, albeit typically taking a longer journey time. Within the city, public transport options are limited, but multiple taxi operators offer service. Tournament participants staying at the official accommodation and opting for the full package will enjoy complimentary local transportation, with shuttles running between the hotel and the tournament course.

For those opting to fly in, Zagreb Airport serves as the primary entry point. We offer organized transportation from Zagreb Airport to Varaždin and back. The cost of a one-way shuttle from Zagreb Airport to Varaždin is approximately 20€ per person, with pricing variations based on the vehicle type (car, van, mini-bus) and the number of passengers sharing the ride. Should you require exclusive transportation due to specific arrival times, individual rides may be available at a slightly higher cost, up to 80€.

Alternatively, if you find yourself in need of a solo ride and if arranging private transportation exceeds your budget, public transport remains a viable alternative. Detailed information on this, contributed by an Australian player who previously attended an event in Varaždin, can be found at the bottom of this page.
