When in Zagreb, in addition to the good congress infrastructure and professional services, you will also experience great atmosphere and an attractive lifestyle the hospitable citizens will gladly share with you.

Zagreb, EU’s newest metropolis, has recently been given the flattering title of one of the most attractive new urban destinations. The number of guests visiting Croatia’s capital is steadily growing, and above-average growth is followed by the growth in the city’s cultural and gastronomical offers, among others.

Zagreb is also a university city, as well as a trade and business hub, which is very important for its positioning as an attractive convention centre.

The city is well-connected to convention centres both in Europe and outside it. A significant step in improving the connectivity was taken earlier this year with the opening of the Franjo Tuđman Airport. Modern roads link the city with many European destinations only a few hours’ pleasant drive away.

Zagreb is famous for its excellent atmosphere and an attractive lifestyle, but also for its high level of personal safety. It has a rich offer of cuisines both from continental and coastal Croatia, as well as numerous international restaurants offering diverse national cuisines from their respective countries. Visitors will immediately notice that the always hospitable people of Zagreb support their events and love their city, which also makes daily life more pleasant for their guests. The people of Zagreb are more than happy to share their habits and lifestyle with their visitors…

In addition to quality convention venues in hotels, specialised halls and cultural institutions, Zagreb also has excellent offers for those who want their business gatherings or special events to be held at historical locations. Not only are the venues on offer beautiful: this aspect of what Zagreb has to offer also has the additional advantage because, just like a large part of the convention hotels, it is situated at attractive locations at the very centre of the city, easily accessible on foot.

A great deal of attention is paid to the education of staff, so local PCOs and DMCs follow international trends, and have national and international certificates that prove their competence.

Within the Zagreb Tourist Board, there is also the Convention Bureau, your contact address for potential organisers of gatherings, market presentations and prospecting.
