I can confirm that traveling by train is my favourite way to travel.
However I did not decided about my exact day of arrival.  I can confirm

I'd rather consider arriving at Wednesday 20.7. (+/- 1 day) to enjoy
part of DebCamp.  So the question is: Will there be some transportation
at any random DebConf day from Zagreb to BL?

This is probably an important question (or perhaps 30st July for a
possible night train to Munich, right - I did not yet checked schedule).

Thanks for the offer of booking for several people.  However, I doubt
that you can do such a complex booking for several start / final
destinations.  I'm pretty sure to get quite good conditions if I book
my whole travel myself here in Germany in advance - because you can
get pretty cheap tickets when bying much in advance.  The drawback is 
that we will probably not share the same compartment in the train.
I'll check in how far this could be ordered flexible.

So you plan to spend the Sunday 31.7. with some tourism in BL / Zagreb?
I'd rather plan to be home on Sunday evening / Monday morning.

travel from my place to Zagreb (other city in Bosnia) I can get quite
cheap tickets (hopefully).
