Zagreb: The Capital of Croatia
by Arunas Travel Photography - 1

Croatia

Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of Croatia, located in the northwest of the country, along the Sava river, at the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain.



Five interesting facts about Zagreb:

  • It was founded in the 1st century by the Romans.
  • The first written record of the city's name dates back to 1134.
  • It became a free royal city in 1242.
  • It was made the capital of Croatia in 1845.
  • It is divided into three parts: the thousand-year old Gornji grad (Upper Town), the 19th century Donji grad (Lower Town) and the modern post-World War II area of Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb).
