Zagreb the capital of the Republic of Croatia 
is the city with a rich collection of cultural heritage, deeply rooted in the European, particularly Central European, culture. The proof of it lies in the historic core of the city, the Upper Town and Kaptol, a unique ancient town core by European standards, coinciding with the more recent parts and the modern buildings of Zagreb.

Zagreb has a thousand faces and each one is professional yet relaxed, modern, but with a dash of a thousand years of longevity, cultural and economic, urban and adventurous… in short, the city you just have to get to know better.

It is situated between the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain and both northern and southern bank of the Sava river approximately 122 m above sea level.

The transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions and industrial tradition underlie its leading economic position in Croatia. Zagreb is the seat of the central government, administrative bodies and almost all government ministries.

One of the biggest Zagreb's advantages is that the most cultural and historical attractions, theatres, museums and galleries are centrally located, all within a 15 minute walking distance from each other.

In addition, Zagreb and their surroundings with its exceptionally preserved nature lure numerous visitors to explore the mysteries of the region: the castles, romantic legends, vineyards, spas, local gastronomic delicacies and traditionally hospitable hosts.

By only one and a half hour relaxed drive you can enjoy nice beaches on the beautiful Mediterranean coast.

Welcome to Zagreb! And feel like at home!
