Dear friends!
There are few people who visit Zagreb, the capital of Croatia, and remain indifferent. Its streets, historic monuments, hotels and cuisine, a wide choice of cultural events, shopping and entertainment opportunities attract an ever bigger number of visitors. Studies and surveys show that tourists recognize its charm and hospitality which place it at the very top of European and world's capitals. It is therefore not a surprise that the number of visitors from all over the world is growing from year to year and that Zagreb enjoys the reputation of a business, congress, cultural, sport, gastronomic, commercial ... destination.
