Location and accommodation

zagreb squareThe city of Zagreb

Zagreb is the capital city of Croatia, with over 790.000 inhabitants.

The history of Zagreb goes back many centuries, but it was in 1094 when the name Zagreb was first mentioned. That happened when the Hungarian king Ladislaus founded the diocese in Zagreb at the Kaptol.

In Zagreb, you can find a nature reserve in the Medvednica mountain, which is not far away from the city centre. Also, make sure not to miss the view of the entire city from the Strossmayer promenade in the uptown of Zagreb. From there you can easily walk down to one of many theaters, which represent the cultural and artistic side of Zagreb.
