Zagreb Airport "Pleso" is located 17 km south of the city centre. Once you have reached "Pleso" take a Croatia Airlines bus that will drop you off at the Central Bus Station (Autobusni kolodvor). From there you can take trams to your destination. Airport bus costs 30 kn and departs daily every half-hour.
You can also catch a taxi in front of the international arrivals but the bus is much cheaper.
Changing currency: There is an ATM outside international arrivals, the Zagrebačka banka office (open 08:00-21:00) and an exchange in the post office (open 08:00-19:00) in the centre of the airport.
