Presented on the 2nd meeting of the multilateral school partnership Our TRESAURES in Portugal (Feb, 2011)
ZAGREB – It was a great pleasure to present our city to other Project's parnters. They were all delighted to hear that Zagreb is the city with a tradition of almost one thousand years celebrating its 900th birthday in 1994. Today, our city lives a rich cultural life, in more than 20 theatres, 3 concert halls, around 60 museums and art galleries. It is a big centre of congress tourism, economic and business events, and trade fairs in Croatia and in this part of Europe. Our picturesque city includes not only numerous places of interest spread over its upper and lower part, but there are also lots of green parks with fountains, avenues of trees and flowers always worth visiting regardless of the season. Besides, we are all very proud of our Snow Queen Trophy, a men's and women's slalom race held as part of the Alpine skiing World Cup on the Medvednica slopes or FloraArt International Garden and Flower Exhibition, the largest horticultural event in the region. In the end, all we can say is a warm and friendly WELCOME TO ZAGREB!
