Plitvice Lakes National Park, the Old Town in Dubrovnik and of Trogir and the Cathedral of St. James in Šibenik are just some of Croatia’s World Heritage Sites. The country has more than 6,000 km of coastline and has been a member of the European Union since 2013. With idyllic beaches with turquoise water, rivers ideal for rafting, narrow medieval streets with early Christian mosaics and a mild climate, there are plenty of reasons to experience Croatia, one of the places with the richest water reserves in the world. Almost 90% of the 4.4 million inhabitants are Roman Catholic. The currency is the kuna (international currency symbol is HRK, 1 kuna ≈ EUR 0.13), but euros are also accepted in some tourist regions.
The capital city, Zagreb, has almost 800,000 inhabitants and is by far the largest city in Croatia (followed by Split with 178,102 inhabitants). It constitutes a charming link between eastern and western Europe. On average, the cost of living is 36% lower than in Hamburg (Source: https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/comparison/hamburg/zagreb-croatia). Although the city is still relatively unknown as a travel destination, Zagreb offers wonderful nature, beautiful parks and gardens as well as a diverse cultural life with more than 20 theatres and an active night life (the large number of universities means that Zagreb has a high percentage of young people) and not just lots of beaches but also lots to see.
With more than 1,200 students, 17% of whom come from abroad, ZSEM is Croatia’s largest private university. ZSEM obtained AACSB accreditation in 2013. Only 5% of all the world’s business schools can boast this international accreditation, which testifies to a university’s quality in terms of the educational and career opportunities, the curriculum and the faculty at the university. Not only is ZSEM well organised, it is also well known for its friendly and familiar atmosphere and innovative teaching methods.
