The Archeological Museum in Zagreb was founded in 1846. It is located in the historicist Vranyczany-Hafner Palace. The valuable museum holdings of circa 460,000 items are systematically arranged in appropriate collections.

The prehistoric collection is a depiction of the development of many cultures, from the Paleolithic to the Early Iron Age. In the Antique collection there are monuments of Greek origin, and Roman monuments of domestic and foreign origin.

The medieval collection follows a chronological system from the period of the Great Migrations to the later Middle Ages. The Egyptian collection is the only one of its kind in the south east part of Europe. An exceptional find is the Zagreb Mummy in linen bands with the world's longest extant Etruscan text.

The numismatic collection is one of the biggest and most important in Europe and indeed in the world. The Museum has a fine library with more than 50,000 titles. In the courtyard of the museum lies the "Lapidarium" with an interesting collection of Roman stone monuments. The Museum also takes care of the Archeological Park of Andautonia in Šćitarjevo, where the remains of an ancient city from the 1st to the 4th century are preserved.

I am looking forward to Zagreb as a destination where I always feel good. It seems it has been too long since the last time I was here, although it was just a year or so.

I like Lisinski very much. It was very intense to perform there, because people came, listened carefully and felt the music in their hearts. Lisinski is a beautiful concert hall, and I am very honored to be performing there. I have wonderful memories of my first performance in Lisinski.

I was very looking forward to coming to Zagreb, especially because my mother travelled with me. My people found out everything about it, so that we could see the main stuff in the city!
