Being the capital and the largest city of Croatia, Zagreb is a historic city dating back to the Romans, first mentioned in 1094.
The name Zagreb would have been come from the Croatian word “zagrabiti”, meaning “to scoop”, relating it to the legends to scoop up the water from the ground then settlement established around it.

So tried Norturno in the alley, trying steak with gnocchi, not bad but not anything extraordinary – as usual in Croatia.

The statue of Count Josip Jelačić, Ban of Croatia, Slavonia and Dalmatia, a Croatian hero supporting independence in Revolutions of 1848 against Habsburg Austrian Empire, erected in 1866 was reinstalled in 1990 after the removal in 1947 under Communist rule.

Tram was quite compact but surprisingly clean and modern, making the trip enjoyable with next stop showing on LED panel.
