It is a great honour and pleasure to welcome you to Croatia’s capital city, Zagreb: The city with a million hearts. Zagreb is one of the great European cities, voted as Best European Destination for Christmas 2 years in a row (2016-2017). It is a city where you can enjoy traditional Croatian dishes as well as excellent contemporary cuisine’, where a world-class marketplace is found under colourful Šestine umbrellas and where one of the most important inventions of the 20th century – the Penkala fountain pen – was made. Indeed, one might say this invention has been, in a way, important for education and knowledge sharing for many generations.
Last year, we have had 30 years of occupational therapy education and 100 years of the occupational therapy profession in Croatia. We are extremely proud of the great and positive changes that have occurred in the profile of the profession in Croatia over the last 10 years through the efforts of our “community of practice”. We now have strong foundations for raising the visibility of the profession and establishing new areas of practice. So please join us in changing occupational therapy history and future.
We are pleased to announce that this year’s event will take place in the Conference Facilities of the Panorama Zagreb Hotel. The Hotel is the tallest hotel in Zagreb.

The ENOTHE Office and our Zagreb hosts are also exploring alternative ways to reduce accommodation costs. With this in mind, the hosts are looking for local colleagues and students who are prepared to offer ‘couch-surfing’ services (i.e. accommodation for an ENOTHE Meeting participant in his/her private home). We kindly ask those interested in this type of accommodation to search local hosts, discuss and find advice in Zagreb on couchsurfing.com.
