A pocket guide about the architecture of Zagreb

01 February 2012

The French Pavilion in the Student Center, the Zagreb Dance Center, the Museum of Contemporary Art, Villa Klara and Ivan Goran Kovačić Primary School are just a few of the133 buildings which are represented in the recently released pocket guide about the architecture of Zagreb, which was issued, after nearly two years of work, by the Youth Section of the Architects of Zagreb Association.

The aim of this guide is to introduce Zagreb and its architecture in a simple way, using the publication, which is equally as interesting for the tourists as it is for the residents of the city.

Made in the form of an A2 size map, the guide can be folded into a size slightly larger than the size of a packet of Kleenex and comfortably fit into your pocket. On one side there is a map of the city with locations of buildings, while on the other there is a list of the 133 most representative buildings. The guide is ideal for anyone staying in Zagreb for two to three days who wants to make a first contact with the city in a faster and cheaper way. As many as 35 buildings are especially highlighted with drawings, photographs and a brief text, and buildings are color coded for easier reference. Pink, for example, indicates the buildings built before the First World War, the ones built in the period from 1971 to 1989 are indicated by yellow, and the city's parks and historic sites like the Lotrščak Tower, the building of the Croatian National Theatre or the Mirogoj Cemetery are marked in grey.

The pocket guide is free and can be picked up at the Association of Architects and the Zagreb Tourist Board, and soon in all major bookstores in the city. For now, it has been issued in English only, but the plan is to publish a Croatian and also an online edition.
