Zagreb is a Middle European town, the capital of Croatia. Its closeness and good connections with other European towns have contributed to its development as a business and cultural centre, centre of art and University... Zagreb that we know today has emerged by joining two medieval settlements, Gradec and Kaptol. The historical centre of the town has three parts: Kaptol, the centre of the Catholic church and the spiritual life, Gradec, the administration centre of Croatia, and Donji grad (Downtown), the business and urban centre of the town. Take a walk on Gornji grad (Upper town) and return to the past, enjoy a true baroque feeling, visit Dolac, the open market place, stroll through many parks and meet some of the town's attractions.
The Church of St. Mark – from the 13th century, famous by its unique roof with the emblem of Croatia, Dalmatia and Slavonia and the emblem of Zagreb.
