General information about Zagreb
The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrates both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it spearheads. Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia, and is home to the Croatian Parliament, Government and President.
Zagreb dates back to the Middle Ages as the settlements on two hills: secular Gradec, today known as the Upper Town; and ecclesiastical Kaptol. The first written record of Zagreb dates back to 1094 when the Hungarian king Ladislav established the Kaptol diocese on his way to the Adriatic Sea. The Zagreb Cathedral still dominates the skyline with its neo-Gothic style, while the Renaissance walls surrounding it are rare preserved examples of their kind in this part of Europe.
The two hills, adversaries in the Middle Ages, were separated by the Medveščak creek and its mills. The creek valley sat along the presentday street of Tkalčićeva and it still runs underneath it, out towards the river Sava. In time the threats of attack subsided and the city started to spread out around the valley. A trading centre below the two settlements evolved into what is now the main square of Ban Josip Jelačić. This is the heart of the city and a meeting point for all Zagreb citizens. There is also a legend of how the city was named. On a sunny day, a brave governor, exhausted and thirsty from battle, asked a girl named Manda to ladle (zagrabiti) him out some water from the spring. This became Manduševac and the city became Zagreb.

Nightlife in Zagreb
As you might expect from a capital city, and a metropolis of just over one million people, Zagreb enjoys a deserved reputation for a riotous nightlife with the new millennium promising plenty more to celebrate than the last one. A mixture of sassy students and suave city slickers ensures that the mushrooming bars and clubs are never short of a customer or two, and with Zagreb finally on the weekends away destination list, thanks to cheap Wizzair flights the number of tourists is set to rapidly to increase and give the nightlife a dash of cosmopolitanism.
A good place to start any night out is Tkalciceva street in Gornji Grad. A pretty throughway it also boasts the city's highest concentration of bars and cafes which are perfect for taking in the capital at a slow pace. The Main Square also makes a decent place to begin the night, with a continental cafe vibe presiding and a chance to see the world go by.
