Participants arriving to Dubrovnik by plane will be met at the airport by 
our students who will provide them with information and help in getting 
to their hotels. The airport is not far from the town, so it is 
convenient to use regular bus lines or taxis.

The current exchange rate for the Croatian currency � kuna (short:
Kn or HRK) � is 1 USD = 8.2 Kn, or 1 DM = 3.9 Kn. It would be
useful to change a certay"n amount of money into kunas when you
arrive at the airport. The following credit cards are accepted in
practically all places: American Express, Mastercard/Eurocard, Visa
and Diners, and you can easily change money in exchange offices, banks
and on ATMs.

If you have not yet paid your fee, you can do so upon arrival, either by 
credit card (American Express or Mastercard/Eurocard), or in cash.

arrangements for your meals.
