September 2011  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
The scorching summer heat is behind us. After a holiday at the coast or inland, after a longer or shorter summer break, with our batteries recharged, we are returning to the familiar hubbub of the city. Some may find it hard to switch from the leisurely countryside pursuits to the demanding rhythm of life and work in the metropolis. However, the sheer number of upcoming cultural, entertainment and sporting events will certainly make the transition easier.

Dear guests and business partners!
Although summer life in Zagreb is vibrant and diverse, and attracts numerous tourists to the city, the first autumn month traditionally brings fresh activity to the streets. Tourists are joined by business guests and the city streets become livelier and more joyful as the students return from their summer holidays at the coast.
