|Zagreb Photo Gallery - Zagreb, located in northwestern Croatia, has been the capital city of the Republic of Croatia since it declared its independence from Yugoslavia in the 1990’s. Zagreb is a city of two faces. Upper Town, consisting of the two formerly walled medieval settlements of Kaptol and Gradec, is the old city with history dating back to the 11th century. Lower Town is a post 19th century area where you’ll find most of Zagreb’s cultural, scientific and educational institutions, stylist shops and the group of parks and walks whose layout easily justifies its appellation as the Green Horseshoe. This photo gallery captures some of the city's attractions.
