Voyage à Zagreb
Zagreb's history spans nine centuries. Its name was first mentioned in 1094, when Hungarian King Ladislaus I founded a diocese on Kaptol Hill. At the beginning of the medieval period, Zagreb received the privileges of a free royal city. By the 17th century, when the University of Zagreb was founded, it had become the political center of the region. From the origins of the city, through the Austro-Hungarian period, President Tito and the struggle for independence, the city's turbulent past allows for fascinating exploration. Its cultural significance can be traced thanks to the Croatian National Theater, Lisinski Concert Hall and Zagreb Arena, as well as many other fascinating theaters and venues.
Escape the noise of the city and take a brisk stroll through Zagreb's oldest public park. What could be better than a beautiful walk in this park filled with meadows, streams, creeks, lakes and other natural landscapes, where you can fully channel your love of nature. From this magnificent nature, one cannot help but be distracted by the cultural heritage that this place has to offer. Take advantage of your getaway to visit the Zagreb Zoo which is located nearby.
