The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrates both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it spearheads. Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia, and is home to the Croatian Parliament, Government and President.
Its favourable location between the Pannonian plain, the edge of the Alps and the Dinaric range has allowed it to become a crossing point for mass international communication. Over the centuries, the city was inhabited by people coming from all over Europe. Zagreb is a safe city whose doors are always open.
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. It is a city that warmly invites all those who wish to get to know it, and a city that will surely fulfill your expectations.

Arriving by train
Back in 1890, when construction started on Zagreb’s Main Railway Station, it wasn’t just an ordinary construction, but the realization of an architectural vision from which arose a 200-meter-long neoclassicist building, full of sculptures and decorations, and which is now a protected cultural heritage of Croatia and a symbol of Zagreb’s architectural legacy.
