Dear Friends and Business Partners
Sometimes, the seasons seem to fly by in Zagreb. So many events have already become part of the city’s traditions. As spring slowly turns into summer, many of them have started moving from their indoor venues onto the streets and squares of Zagreb. There is always something new being added to the calendar of events as an additional expression of welcome to our guests. It is not by accident that they recognize this hospitality and are taken in by the city’s charm, which is reflected in the statistical data.
