Croatia’s capital city is gearing up for a sizzling spring season crammed with concerts, art exhibits and nightlife. Lucky you if you’re visiting Zagreb within the next few months. Let’s look at the top highlights.

Happening Now

In Zagreb now? Then rush right over to the International Wine Tourism Conference and educate yourself on the wonders of wine, especially Croatian wine.

Coming Soon

American jazz legend, Ron Carter, will open the Croatian Jazz Festival on March 18 at Lisinski Hall. He’ll be followed by a succession of Croatia’s finest jazz musicians.

A major Pablo Picasso exhibition will open on March 23 at the Klovic Palace art gallery. Over 670-million euros worth of Picasso’s painting and sculpture have been shipped from the Picasso Museum in Paris for this art event of the season. Not to be missed.

Zagreb will be one of four Croatian cities to host the World Art Games from June 29 to July 10. The “Art Olympics” are expected to showcase the work of dozens of Croatian and international artists.


After soaking up Picasso at the Klovic Palace art gallery, why not treat your ears to a new indie-music spot right on the gallery grounds. Klub Zedno will present the latest music of all genres on weekends from 9pm to 4am.

New Museums

Croatia’s first car museum, the Ferdinand Budicki Museum, will open this June with more than 50 classic cars and motorcycles. Until its opening, classic cars from its collection are being displayed on Zagreb’s squares.


Expansion plans for the Zagreb International Airport at Pleso have not been going well. Although the construction of a new terminal was supposed to be shovel-ready in April, financing and other difficulties have delayed the start of the 365-million euro project until at least September. For travellers, that’s probably a good thing since it means that the airport will not be in construction chaos during the height of the summer season.

Croatia Airlines will not be connecting Zagreb with Belgrade this summer despite rumours to the contrary, and has also cancelled services to Istanbul and London Gatwick as part of cost-cutting measures. Croatia’s troubled national carrier will still operate flights to Heathrow although that will also be reviewed next year according to EX-YU Aviation News.

The UK has long been a hospitable destination for emigrating Croatians so it makes sense that the British Croatian Society is going all out to celebrate Croatia’s forthcoming admission to the EU, scheduled to take place on July 1 of this year. Welcome Croatia is a series of events covering Croatian art, literature, and archaeological history that are taking place in various London venues. More than just sun and sea, Croatia also has a rich cultural history that deserves to be explored whether you’re ready to get inspired for your Croatian holiday this year or you would just like to see what the EU’s newest member is all about. Here are some of the highlights:

The lands that today comprise Croatia were part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire until the close of World War I. In 1918, the Croats, Serbs, and Slovenes formed a kingdom known after 1929 as Yugoslavia. Following World War II, Yugoslavia became a federal independent Communist state under the strong hand of Marshal TITO. Although Croatia declared its independence from Yugoslavia in 1991, it took four years of sporadic, but often bitter, fighting before occupying Serb armies were mostly cleared from Croatian lands. Under UN supervision, the last Serb-held enclave in eastern Slavonia was returned to Croatia in 1998.
