Cool crowd. Cool atmosphere. A friendly chat and alluring smell of sizzling meat and veggies. That is a common theme at each academic year’s end.

The best Croatian and international artist perform on numerous stages in the city and pop-up exhibitions are set up all over the Old Town. Innovative museums located in Zagreb have become a model and the first link in the chain spreading outside of Croatian, even European borders.
Streets and beautiful open-air venues of the city with a special atmosphere have always been and still are the best scenery for the international film industry that travels to Zagreb on a regular basis.
