City of Zagreb

Zagreb, one of the oldest European cities, is not only administrative but also the economic, diplomatic and cultural capital of Croatia, with a population of almost one million.

It is also a university center with forty higher education schools and over 85,000 students, a city that is proud of its long history of education: the first secular city school was built in the middle of the 14th century, the first secondary school was founded at the beginning of the 16th century and in the second half of the 16th century, Zagreb had its first university.

Zagreb is a city of science and culture. The city has approximately fifty museums and galleries, as well as private art collections and about twenty theatres and music venues. Many open-air events and exhibitions are organized from spring to autumn. While walking down the streets of Zagreb, you can admire the architecture, which mostly dates back to the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

Even though Zagreb is a Central European city, in many ways, it has a Mediterranean way of life.

Great atmosphere and friendly local people are the biggest values of Zagreb.

Daytime is reserved to enjoy the works and crafts of local artists. The bar opens late in the afternoon and live music spices up the evenings.

Romantic ambient of the upper town Zagreb intensified by a glass of wine is what has made this “all-summer-event” the most popular getaway from the daily routine. It’s a sure way to forget you’re in a busy capital and a great chance to meet locals.
