Zagreb – city with a million hearts
Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, stands on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrating both the continental European and Mediterranean spirit of the nation. With a population of nearly one million, Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political, and administrative center of Croatia. Its favorable location between the Pannonian Plain, the edge of the Alps, and the picturesque Dinaric Range has made Zagreb a crossing point for mass international communication. Over the centuries, the city’s culture has been enriched by newcomers moving to Zagreb from across Europe and, in recent years, from different parts of Croatia. Zagreb’s striking architecture tells of the city’s dynamic history, while the activity within its streets and squares bears witness to the many cultures that came together to shape this inviting capital’s identity. While visiting, you can leisurely stroll through the cobblestone streets in the historic Gradec district, sample fresh local produce at one of the city’s many farmers markets, or experience one of Europe’s best coffee cultures. Whatever you enjoy, you will find your niche. Zagreb is a safe city whose doors are always open; a city with a riveting history teeming with interesting personalities; a city that warmly invites all those who wish to get to know it; and a city that will fulfill your expectations and more.
