May 2016  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
With the arrival of sunny spring, the growing possibilities of spending free time outdoors again make our city a favourite international open air living room, as it is often affectionately referred to by tourists and other visitors of the Croatian capital, and the tourist offer of Zagreb is becoming more competitive by the year.

Dear friends and business partners!
Even a mere glance at the list of events scheduled to take place in May will suffice to prove that life in Zagreb is gaining steam, as many interesting goings-on spice up the routine of everyday activities. The existing, traditional events inspired by the city’s past are enhanced by new ones based on modern music, gastronomy, oenology and other trends. In short, Zagreb offers something for all generations.
