Zagreb offers the glamorous flair of a big city, but to the delight of its residents and guests it has retained the openness for personal encounters. The city is manageable and you can easily walk to everything between the hotel and the theater, the upper town and the old streets of the lower town. This creates space for a warm and personal atmosphere.
There is something special in the autumnal rustling of leaves on Zrinjevac, in the glow of the gas lanterns of the upper town and the song of the street singers. The Zagreb cafes in the early evening, when the twilight turns off the daylight, the flickering of the candles in the cathedral or the stone gate have their own charm. And while the fast, busy rhythm in the play of light and shadow disappears unnoticed, the other awakens who invites to timeless and modern plays and concerts or in restaurants and clubs. Zagreb is a special city, a never-ending story, the magic of which you also contribute. Zagreb has a soul, very simple. And you, you have Zagreb.
Zagreb - the city of millions of hearts
History of Zagreb
The two often opposing settlements in the Middle Ages were both separated and connected by the Medveščak stream, on which mills stood at that time. Today there is the colorful Tkalčićeva Street, under the mosaic of which the stream still flows to the Sava River. As the threat of attack decreased, the city gradually spread across the entire plains. A market place was created in the valley between the two settlements. Today's Ban-Josip-Jelačić Square is considered the heart of the city and is a popular meeting place for the residents of Zagreb. A legend links the source that arose here closely to the history of the city's name: Once upon a time, there was a brave banus who returned from the fight exhausted and thirsty on a sunny day. At the source he is said to have shouted to a girl: “Manduša, zagrabi! “(Manduša, create!). This gave rise to the name of the Manduševac spring and the name of the city of Zagreb.
