48th Seminar: Useful Information

Arrival and Departure

The participants of the 48th Seminar of Zagreb School of Slavic Studies are expected to arrive in Dubrovnik, at the Villa Gloriet Hostel, on Sunday, 18th August 2019. The programme will begin, as scheduled, on Monday morning (ceremonial opening of the Seminar and the introductory lecture), 19th August 2019. Language exercise courses and seminars will begin on Tuesday. The Seminar will finish on Friday 30th August 2019. The participants' departure is scheduled for Saturday 31st August 2019.

A regular bus line (Shuttle Bus) connects the Dubrovnik Airport with the Main Bus Station Dubrovnik from where you can arrive to Villa Gloriet by city bus number 8 (bus stop Ilijina glavica). 

The School does not cover any travel expenses (arrival in Dubrovnik and departure); participants need to cover these costs.


Participants are accommodated in the Villa Gloriet Hostel, Volantina ulica 1, in multi-bed rooms on the bed and breakfast basis.

The School will cover the expenses of the 13-day-long hotel accommodation for scholarship holders. Please bear in mind that this exclusively refers to the period from 18th August (Sunday) to 31st August (Saturday) 2019. Participants who arrive prior to 18th August or depart after 31st August must arrange accommodation and cover the expenses themselves.

The programme of the Seminar (language exercise courses, seminars, lectures, facultative programme, and cultural events) will in most part take place in the Centre for Advanced Academic Studies Dubrovnik, Frana Bulića 4. On this venue, lunch will be organized and covered by the School for the participants. Centre for Advanced Academic Studies Dubrovnik is situated within a ten-minute walking distance from the Villa Gloriet Hostel.

Certificates of Attendance

The participants of the Zagreb School of Slavic Studies are required to participate in the programme (regularly attend language exercise courses and seminars they have selected as well as the lectures, cultural events, field trips, etc.). At the end of the course, participants who fulfil these prerequisites will receive a Certificate of Attendance signed by the School's Head and the Dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences. The Certificate will include information on the types of language exercise courses/seminars attended, for which participants will be awarded 3 ECTS points.


The participants who require a visa to enter the Republic of Croatia should obtain one on time in order to avoid late starts. The Zagreb School of Slavic Studies cannot mediate in the visa obtaining process and cannot issue affidavit letters.

Health insurance

We recommend that the participants obtain international health insurance in their own countries, which will allow them, if necessary, to receive adequate international medical care. The Zagreb School of Slavic Studies cannot be responsible for the health of its participants, nor can it cover the costs of their medical treatments if required.
