Zagreb is capital city of Croatia
I’ve been living in Canada for more than 20 years now, but I always return to my home town Zagreb and never have enough of it! Zagreb is my city, because I was born there. I carry so many memories, that where ever I go around the town, something always reminds me of something from the years when I was growing up on these streets – good old memories…

Spring in Zagreb

By: Dumneazu

Its been a dreary and lingering winter in Budapest, which is up in the top reaches of the Carpathian basin, so when spring won’t come to us, we have to go to spring. That means down south, and that means Da Balkans.

Traditional Croatian Easter eggs in Croatia/Pisanica
Easter is just around the corner and Croats, like the majority of other Slavic nations, respect the ancient custom of coloring eggs the day before the actual festivity. A newly dyed egg is called a pisanica, a term derived from the word “pisati” (to write). This is because pisanicas are supposed to be gifted and often feature an inscribed message.

Christmas in Zagreb

By: Zdenko Kahlina

I thought you would like to see few pictures of my home town Zagreb, at Christmas time. The main square, streets, shops… everything is decorated throughout the holiday season.

Ivan Meštrović is responsible for a lot of public art in Croatia and this was one of my favorites, located in the square that was once carrying name of our Marshal Tito, in lower town Zagreb, next to the elegant Croatian National Theatre.

Travel Croatia

Zagreb is the capital city of Croatia.
The Croatian capital is well worth a stay of at least a couple of days. Croatia is a country celebrated mostly for its beautiful beaches. Many Canadian friends, who were in Zagreb last summer for my daughter’s wedding, can confirm this.

Summer of ZAGREB!!! Really? YES.
Ah, the Croatian summer: sunny days in an azure postcard; pale ancient stones, illuminated in the moonlight; the soft tones of the sea, gently slapping against hulls of the harbored boats; wining and dining inside a 2,000 YEAR OLD Roman palace!

Life in Croatia

By: Cody McClain Brown

A blog about Croatian and American culture
Whenever I fly back to Oklahoma I feel like I’m shedding layers of culture, like a snake sheds skin. The move from Europe to Mid-America takes me from a place where almost everything has an air of elegance, from the small cups of coffee to my finely dressed compatriots flying alongside me, and drops me in a place where elegance is a word more likely to be mistaken for elephant.

Life in Croatia

By: Cody McClain Brown

Splitting the bill in a restaurant
The first time I had dinner with a Croatian was in Oklahoma at an Applebee’s. Applebee’s is famous for serving mediocre food with mediocre alcohol. Nothing says meh, like overcooked, rubbery ribblets (a word Applebee’s invented) and cold 3.2 beer.

Life in Croatia

The power of the dark side
In America I was never really one for luxury cars. Not that I could ever afford one, but I never even dreamed of owning one. Never wanted to. Luxury car in the US means a big, bulky SUV that annoys me more than it impresses me.

World Travel

By: ALEX CREVAR

THE Croatian capital is in the midst of an identity crisis. Geographically, Croatia is indisputably part of the Balkan Peninsula, but call a chic Zagrebian Balkan and prepare to get an earful.

Traveling Croatia

By: ROBERT CROSS, Chicago Tribune

Zagreb (Croatia) Reclaims Its Status As Must-See Old World City
One morning, shrieking whistles yanked me out of a deep sleep. They sounded like a thousand cops dealing with an apocalyptic traffic jam. The constant racket drove out all rational thought.
