Wednesday Rafting

It's time for some hardcore outdoors adventure! We're going to raft down the bouncy rapids lurking in the amazing Cetina river canyon, followed by a delicious traditional "peka" dinner at the Radmanove Mlinice restaurant (location map here).


Forecast sunny with some cloud and possibly a localised shower, up to 27'C. Evening will be cooler, especially next to the river where we eat.

You will need to bring:

For rafting - footwear that you don't mind getting wet (you will get wet), light clothes (eg. shorts, t-shirt ... which will get wet), and a lightweight windproof cagoule/k-way if you have one (....which will get wet). If it's not obvious by now, you are going to get soaking wet.

After, for the evening/dinner - a towel, and warm dry clothing to get changed into to wear for the evening.


The bus leaves MEDILS at 13:45.


Dinner is at the Radmanove Mlinice at 19:00. We eat outside, next to the river and it can get cool, so bring a spare jumper to keep warm.

Omis / staying local

For those who are visiting Omis instead of rafting, you will travel on the bus with everyone and be dropped off in Omis. Ivica will pick you up later to bring you to Radmanove Mlinice. Be ready to leave Omis at 18h45 (pick-up point here)

For those staying local to MEDILS, Ivica will pick you up and bring you to the restaurant in time for dinner. Be ready to leave at 18h10.

"tCSC 2018 Live!" (this page) is the live blog/information-sharing channel of the organisers (Sebastian, Joelma, Nikos and the lecturers) with students during the School.

This is the place where we will post official information (schedule updates, links to surveys, logistics details of various activities) but also the fun stuff (pictures from social activities, sport competition results etc.). So please visit this page often.

I hope that you are as excited as we are to come to the sunny Split in just a couple of days! :-)
