Zagreb is the capital of Croatia situated on the bottom of Mount Medvednica. It has culture, arts, music, architecture, gastronomy and all the other things that make a quality capital city. Although the Zagreb area has been inhabited ever since prehistoric time, the first written mention of the city dates back to 1094 when the Diocese of Zagreb was founded, and the foundations of Zagreb Cathedral were laid. The city is divided into three parts: the thousand-year old Gornji grad (Upper Town) which contains the iconic St Mark’s Church, Lotrščak tower, Stone Gate and museums and galleries which are all set in cobbled streets lit by gas lamps; the 19th century Donji grad (Lower Town) with its shops, restaurants, cafes, theatres and parks; and the modern post-World War II area of Novi Zagreb ("new Zagreb").
City is within easy day trip distance of countless sites of natural beauty and cultural heritage.
Mountains, rivers, lakes and Adriatic Sea are all within 2 hours drive.
