Welcome to Total Zagreb

Welcome to Zagreb, not only the capital of the EU's youngest member, but also a booming tourist hotspot. More than a million tourists overnighted in Zagreb in 2015, the only destination to do so in Croatia.

It is the business hub, the entertainment centre and the source of much of what goes on in the country, and so we have decided to launch our latest site, Total Zagreb, to keep local expats informed of what is going on, as well as cater to the information needs of the growing number of tourists.

In addition to the standard info features of accommodation, activities and where to eat, drink and party, we also have a comprehensive event calendar (and you are welcome to add your events), as well as various features, such as Healthy Zagreb, Run Zagreb and other niche sectors of Zagreb. If you would like to contribute your views of life on Zagreb, why not write for us? Please contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will be blogging daily, and if you have a feature you would like us to cover, get in touch.

Fairytale of Zagreb in the Grič Tunnel

Grič Tunnel is one of those locations in Zagreb where creativity of the people involved in organizing Advent and their desire to create something very unique and appropriate for the setting of a WWII 500-meter long tunnel in the centre of the city really becomes obvious.

Another Robbery Stopped by Police Forces in Zagreb

Although Zagreb is, compared to other cities of its size around the world, still relatively low in the number of violent crimes, it seems like sometimes even we get to witness the scenes that could find their place in any B-production Hollywood action movie.
