The city of Zagreb can trace its history as far back as 1094 AD as a medieval fortress town; today it is Croatia’s capital and also an important city for history and culture. Zagreb rose to prominence due to its strategic location along the trade routes linking Central Europe to the Adriatic Sea. Today, it continues to play an important role in Croatia’s arts scene and is a rich source of this captivating country’s history. The architecture of city itself is a unique blend of medieval Austro-Hungarian squares, churches, and palaces as well as functional socialist structures. Jelačić Square in central Zagreb is a popular starting point for those wishing to enjoy the city’s history. Do also note that from April to September a group called Order of the Silver Dragon re-enacts famous historical conflicts at St. Mark’s square with functional replicas of medieval armour. Zagreb is also known for its many museums (in fact there are more museums per square foot here than anywhere else in the world). If time permits, do try to visit the Museum of Broken Relationships which displays donated pieces that represents a past relationship. Many of the exhibits have been displayed internationally in places such as the Tristan Bates Theatre in London.
