Arriving by plane


International airport of Pula is definitely the #1 choice when looking for the flights to attend the ECM29. Located only 36 km from Rovinj, it is well connected by regular local bus lines with downtown Pula, from where many local bus lines to Rovinj are available. A regular, two-way shuttle service will be organised from the Pula airport to Rovinj. During the summer season (and the time when ECM29 is taking place), Pula airport is directly connected with many European cities (London, Manchester, Birmingham, Frankfurt, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Moscow, Kiev, Belgrade, Oslo, Rome, Zadar, Zagreb, Brussels and others).

As an alternative, five other international airports can be used by the participants of the ECM29: Rijeka, Trieste (Italy), Zagreb, Venice (Italy) and Ljubljana (Slovenia). In addition to the regular shuttle service from Pula, there will be another two-way service for all participants of the ECM29 arriving to Trieste.

Upon request, special shuttle services will be provided for the participants of the ECM29 arriving to Venice, Ljubljana, Rijeka and Zagreb airports. All these airports are well connected to corresponding downtown terminals, from which there are regular bus lines to Rovinj (for more information, see below). Downtown Venice is also connected with Rovinj by a daily speedboat line (see below).
