Zagreb ”the capital of Croatia”, cultural, economic and political center of the Croatia country. Zagreb with its rich history dating back from the Roman times to the present day. The first recognition of the settlement as Zagreb appears to have been recorded in 1094. Today Zagreb presents into two different cities. The modern, urban and vibrant capital and the historic and cultural Zagreb that grew side by side with its counterpart Vienna. Zagreb is a city that embraces the modern but never forgets its glorious past. The town is protected by the mountain of Medvednica and the Sava river. In the center, there are many parks, streets, squares to make its beautiful surroundings. The town is divided into three parts; Gornji grad (Upper Town), Donji grad (Lower Town) and the modern area of Novi Zagreb (New Zagreb).
