Zagreb, Croatia

Zagreb, Croatia’s capital and largest city, lies on the bank(s) of the Sava River, at the foot of the Medvednica Range. As the country’s cultural centre, Zagreb is well known for its museums, theatres, concerts and other cultural programmes. The old part of Zagreb consists of three historical sections, all of which have retained their medieval atmosphere; they contain the majority of its monuments, most of which visited on foot. The Kaptol quarter encompasses the cathedral and the surrounding area which, historically, was inhabited by members of the clergy. The nobility and the craftsmen traditionally lived in the nearby Gradec quarter. The Church of St. Mark, built in the 13th century, can be found in the third - Donji grad (Lower City) – quarter.
