The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia, and is home to the Croatian Parliament, Government and President. You can find spaces for recreation almost anywhere around Zagreb. Right in the city centre, parks, streets and squares intersect with green spaces and gardens. Zagreb enjoys a rich cultural life.
Around 30 theatres are active in the city, some with regular programs, some occasional. Along with some 30 museums, a large number of galleries and many theatre, music and dance festivals all combine to make Zagreb a city of art. The gastronomic selection in Zagreb comprises a rich combination of many cuisines.
You should certainly try Zagreb strudel with apples, cheese or cherries, and there is also kremšnita, the most famous cream cake made in the nearby town of Samobor. We should not leave without mentioning the praised wines made from grapes grown near Zagreb. Even though beer is the most popular drink, wine has always been very important in Zagreb.
