Zagreb

Zagreb is the capital of the Republic of Croatia, and has a population of over 790 000 residents within the city limits and more than one million in the region. The city was built on the southern slopes of Medvednica Mountain at an average altitude of over 120 m. In the south part of the city, development across the Sava River began in the 20th century. Historically, the town developed from two settlements, Gradec and Kaptol, which today represent the old town core. In the second half of the 19th century and in the period until the 1st World War, Zagreb took on the look of a modern Middle European city.
In 2017, Zagreb hosted more than 1.25 million tourists. Annual tourism growth is more than 10%. A remarkable growth rate is expected in the first half of 2020 when Croatia chairs the European Union.
