January 2013  

Dear Citizens and Guests of Zagreb!
By celebrating Christmas and throwing a big New Year's party, surrounded by family, dear friends and colleagues, we left behind a year which abounded in interesting cultural, sporting, tourism and social events, all despite the economic downturn.

Dear Friends and Business Partners,
What else can we say at the beginning of a new year that will be truly special for Zagreb and Croatia other than happy 2013! I am sure you have made a lot of New Year’s resolutions and that you have a lot of wishes for the year that is ahead of us. We are sure that one of those wishes is related to travelling.
