You are here: Home / Location


The summer school will take place in the seaside town of Lovran, which is situated on the Opatija Riviera of Croatia. This area has the longest tradition of tourism in Croatia, due to its attractive geographical position, warm sea, lush green scenery and pleasant climate. The summer temperature is maintained at a comfortable average of 21.9 Celsius by cool breezes from the Učka Mountain. Well-maintained public gardens, the illuminated 12-km-long coastal promenade known as the Lungomare, well-kept beaches and fountains, many villas and hotels, combine in a pleasant environment.

Lovran has good road, railway and air connections. Nearby airports are Rijeka, Pula and Zagreb (all in Croatia), Trieste and Venice (in Italy), and Ljubljana (in Slovenia). The closest railway stations are Opatija-Matulji and Rijeka.

Student accommodation for the summer school will be in the 3-star Hotel Bristol, at a special rate.

Lectures will take place in the Hotel Excelsior.
