November 2011  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
Throughout November and December, with Christmas at the doorstep, the Croatian capital does not begin to hibernate but, on the contrary, it becomes even livelier. These are the months when we take stock of our successes and accomplishments, and bring annual projects to an end. Moreover, winter events and programs also attract numerous tourists from all over the world to our city; this year alone, there has been a 15 percent increase compared to last year.

Dear friends and business partners!
The autumn days have brought new colours and fragrances to Zagreb’s streets and parks. Roasted chestnuts and other chestnut delicacies, young wine and numerous other specialties from the seasonal menu, are all part of the diverse culinary selection of the Croatian capital.
