September 2012  

Dear citizens and guests of Zagreb!
September is a transient time of the year, with the summer heat subsiding slowly as the autumnal season sets in. As the last heat wave heads out of town, Zagreb’s citizens return to it after an enjoyable summer vacation.

Dear friends and business partners,
The colourful foliage adorning Zagreb's numerous parks is not the only sign that the autumn is upon us. The month of September is typically a time when the buzz returns to Zagreb as the citizens of Zagreb come back from vacations and pupils and students get ready to start a new school year.
