on Saturday 16th of March 12. Zagreb photo fair is taking place, from 10am till 4pm. ticket price is 15 kuna , about 2, and 10 kuna (1,3) for groups of 5 and more.

here is the link to fair's webpage:
http://www.fotosajam.com/12/
if you are interested in coming to visit, there is location map on that page.

roughly translated text on the page i've linked:
" With an average of around 1000 visitors and 40 exhibitors, Zagreb photo fair is largest event of this kind in this part of Europe. More exhibitors only has Vienna photo fair but has half as many visitors. Bigger fairs of this kind in Europe are in Bievresu, near Paris and in Houten in Netherlands.

Aim of this fair is to enable lovers of photography to present, sell and exchange all photography equipment, from latest cameras and studio lighting to old analog film cameras that you can't find in stores."

aside from commercial side of the fair, there are also presentations. this year programme is as follows (for now, soon to be expanded):
- 10:30 12:00h DIY tabletop home photo studio - how to improvise small tabletop photo studio

- 12:20 12:40h X-Rite calibrators demonstration

- 12:50 13:50h underwater photography

- 14:00 16:00h EOS Academy: your EOS adventure starts here

here you can follow the number of exhibitors, list usually isn't finished until the last day before the fair. in red are commercial exhibitors, at the end of the list are private sellers of used cameras, lenses and other equipment:

You choose the right focal lens for the event, did you bought or sold something there?
