Zagreb is the capital of Croatia. It has a rich history and tradition and is similar, in spirit and appearance, to other central-European capitals like Vienna, Budapest or Prague. To give you an idea of location, Zagreb is 650-700 km from Prague or Munich and only 350-400 from Budapest, Vienna or Bratislava. Zagreb has excellent air, road and train connections to other European and non-European cities.
