Zagreb, Croatia

The City of Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economical, political and administrative center of the Republic of Croatia with seat of Parliament, and hosting the President and Government of the Republic of Croatia. It has a thousand-year-old tradition (written documents first mention Zagreb in 1094) and one of the oldest universities in Europe (University of Zagreb, founded in 1669).
The population of the city is around 800,000, and of its urban agglomeration around 1,000,000.
It is located in the northwest of the country and due to its geographical location, it is extremely well connected with many Central and Southern European capitals and cities (by car <2h to Ljubljana and Graz; <3h to Trieste; <4h to Vienna, Budapest and Belgrade; <5h to Bratislava and Sarajevo).
