The City of Zagreb, is the capital of the Republic of Croatia and home to the nation’s government. It is the nation’s cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative center.
Zagreb, with a population of nearly one million, contains almost a quarter of the entire population of Croatia. Throughout the city, streets and squares intersect with green spaces, parks and gardens. Despite the development of its economy and increased traffic, Zagreb has preserved its unique beauty and relaxed atmosphere which is why visitors often like to call its green spaces "their outside living area". A combination of mediterranean cordiality and northern business sense make any tourist or business visitor feel welcome.
Zagreb has many tourist attractions including: Upper Town (Zagreb Cathedral, Stone Gate, St. Mark`s Square, Tower of Lotrščak, Strossmayer’s Promenade), Down Town (Jelačić Square, Zrinjevac Park, Dolac Market, Croatian National Theatre, Mimara Museum) and Maksimir Park.
The City of Zagreb has been actively participating in the European Mobility Week since 2003. In 2012 it won the prestigious Mobility Award, given to cities that accomplish the greatest progress in stable and long-term measures in the field of sustainable transport and mobility. In 2014, the city established the Zagreb Cycle Unit with the objective of coordinating the planning, development and implementation of cycling transport and cycle tourism projects across the city.
