EVS volunteers will be accommodated in a shared apartment in the centre of Opatija. The apartment will be fully equipped, including kitchen equipment. Two volunteers of same sex will share a room while the third volunteer will have a room on his/her own. The apartment will be prepared to volunteers’ specific needs if necessary and checked before their arrival by Zmergo’s member and the owner. The apartment is located in the walking distance from Zmergo’s office and there is no need of using a local transport in order to get there.

Volunteers will receive monthly money for food plus pocket money and, once in Croatia, they will participate in the On-Arrival training at the beggining of their EVS as well as in the Mid-Term meeting in the half of their EVS.
