Zagreb the political, economic, scientific, artistic, educational center of the Croatian people, the capital of the Republic of Croatia, and one of the oldest European cities, with several significant jubilees: 750 years since it was proclaimed a Free Royal Borough, 900 years since the establishment of the first diocese and the first written mention of its name, 3000 years since the first settlements; it lies between the slopes of the Medvednica mountain on the north and the Sava river on the south. The stormy century-long past is reflected in the city's present-day physiognomy. The newer part of the city, with Vienna Secession period architecture, was built below Gric and around old Harmica (today's Jelačićev trg), an area with medieval walls, towers (Lotršćak, the Popov tower, Kamenita vrata) and old churches (the cathedral, St. Mark's, St. John's, Holy Mary's), as well as Baroque manors and architectural monuments of Gradec (Gornji grad) and Kaptol. Modern Zagreb rises along the banks of the Sava river and into the Turopolje plain, and around the old town. Medvedgrad, Croatia's most significant medieval fort, was built on one of the Medvednica hills, just above Zagreb, in the 13th century. Today it houses the Altar of the Homeland, a monument to Croatia's freedom, erected within the fort's walls in 1994, to stand as a memorial site to all who sacrificed their lives for free homeland Croatia in the course of its long, complex history.

Zagreb is Croatia's most important modern cultural and educational centre, where the Croatian (IIlyric) national revival took place in 1835, and the Matica ilirska (an important Croatian cultural institution) was founded in 1842. Zagreb is the seat of the Parliament of the Republic of Croatia. Zagreb is also the seat of numerous colleges and academies, with a wide network of trade and professional schools. It is also the home of the Croatian National Theatre, which celebrated its 100th birthday in 1995, and several theatre art institutions. The enormous cultural heritage, including a world rarity - an Etruscan mummy, a rich Neanderthal paleontological discovery from Krapina, as well as the largest cave bear scull known to date, found in the Veternica cave near Podsused, is kept, alongside many other valuables, in museums and galleries - the Mimara Museum holds a significant collection of valuable and unique exhibits from around the world; the treasury of the Zagreb cathedral contains priceless sacral and secular works of art. Zagreb has numerous kept parks, green areas, the two-century old Maksimir park, as well as a sports and recreation centre near the Zagreb "sea" - the Jarun Lake. The cultural and historical riches, important artistic events, cultural manifestations, sports events, the beauty of the scenery and the century-long history make Zagreb a big tourist attraction as well.
