Welcome to Zagreb, the capital city of the Republic of Croatia. Zagreb is an old Central European city. For centuries it has been a focal point of culture and science, and now of commerce and industry as well.
Zagreb can offer its visitors the Baroque atmosphere of the Upper Town, picturesque open-air markets, diverse shopping facilities, an abundant selection of crafts and a choice vernacular cuisine.
Zagreb is a city of green parks and walks, with many places to visit in the beautiful surroundings. In spite of the rapid development of the economy and transportation, it has retained its charm, and a relaxed feeling that makes it a genuinely human city.
Zagreb is Europe’s biggest outdoor café, always hospitable and open-hearted!
Zagreb has sports and recreational areas, parks, promenades, open air festivals and one of the best preserved garden produce markets in Europe.
Zagreb has exclusive hotels and congress centers, period buildings, theatres, museums, restaurants and nearby getaways.
Zagreb has been the foundation from which many excellent scientists and artists have ventured out into the world; it is also the birth place of some of the world’s most important heritage items like the cravat (necktie) and ball-point pen, both of which have become traditional symbols associated with the business world.
Zagreb is the starting-point of many memorable travels and memories. Its green surroundings and its fantastic connection to the scenic Adriatic coastline, by both air and highway are close by and await you.
Zagreb has a heart, and you...you have Zagreb.
