Central Croatia comprises Moslavina and Turopolje, Banovina and Kordun, Posavina, Podravina, as well as the capital, the city of Zagreb and its surroundings.

Geographically, the area is characterized by mild hills and river plains. Historically and economically, each region has developed its own specific features that are offered today as tourist attractions to visitors.

Croatia is a continental-Mediterranean country with 56.594 m2 of surface area and the population of approximately 4,500,000.

The capital city is Zagreb with a population of approximately 800,000. Other big cities include Split, Rijeka, Osijek, Zadar, Šibenik, Dubrovnik, Varaždin, Pula and Karlovac.

 DID YOU KNOW: 

  • During the building a foundation of house at Frankopanska 8 (today Gavella Theatre) in early 20th century, construction workers found the bone of wooly mammoth (Mammuthus primigenius)
  • In the late 19th century at Lotrščak Tower in Upper Town, there was a Coffe house, pastry shop and first billiard table in Zagreb.
  • Famous Croatian writer Miroslav Krleža was born in the building in Radićeva street where famous old-school intellectual joint Krolo MK stands from 1981.
  • It’s difficult to look at the floor when you are walking through Zagreb streets, but if you do, try to find sewer manholes with big Zagreb coat of arms (little help: Tkalčićeva street and Upper Town).
  • At the corner of Krvavi Most and Tkalčićeva street (today Marija Jurić–Zagorka Library) in the late 19th century, there was the first telephone exchange in Zagreb.
  • Behind the walls of Zagreb Cathedral, there was a fishpond (today Ribnjak Park) where clerics used to catch fish for Friday meal.

 

 The city of Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, on the historical and political threshold between East and West, illustrates both the continental and Mediterranean spirit.  

Zagreb is marked by the old city core of Gornji grad (Upper Town) and the lively streets of the city center, the river Sava and Medvednica Mountain that rises in the background landscape of the city. The green surfaces are in abundance and the outdoor markets are appealing to tourists.

A city that warmly invites all those who wish to get to know it, and a city that will surely fulfill your expectations. You can easily meet remarkable people, make new friends and enjoy special moments. The façades of Zagreb’s buildings reflect the ebb and flow of history, while its streets and squares bear witness to the coming together of the many cultures that have shaped the identity of this laid-back capital. The best thing to do is when you first arrive is to take in Zagreb’s wonderful atmosphere, which, as many claims, is only surpassed by the legendary beauty of the local womenfolk.
