It was 1.1 Million in the greater Zagreb area. But last year there was an additional 80,000 new residents. It probably is around 1.2 million now. But we'll have to wait for next census.

For me it is hard to believe that 80.000 people moved to Zagreb last year. I think that big part of that number goes to daily migrations (work, school, etc) from near towns and areas around the city. Zagreb has retalitively low rate of unnemployment (9 percent) comparing to some other less developed areas of Croatia, and incomes are higher (around 700 euro), while average Croatian is around 600 euro.

Thats what some of read in the newspapers. I think Long Foot first mentioned it and I saw something similar. There has been a lot of construction of new apartments.

Such an awesome structure. Its so noticeable from a distance, all 105m high.

I like this rebuilt version of the cathedral, rather than the pre-1880 earthquake one which too seemed unusual.

Well done BH.

I found few great pics of Zagreb down town, (view from Westin hotel). You can also see where cathedral is located in comparison to the other objects in center of city like Mimara, HNK, University, St. Mark's church…










Bubach, we should open new thread with down town photos.

Well, I personally would love to see that building demolished ASAP cuz it's like a finger in the eye, but some people dont share my idea on that. I really wonder when that thing will be listed on UNESCO's list ... Sorry, cant help it, i just hate it with passion.

Yes, that building shown is a 17 level office tower built in 1956 and is listed as an item of heritage. It sits over looking Zagrebs main square but many argue it should be pulled down. Anyway its getting a face lift.

The last picture show the effect of polution and that why the cathedral is being restored. It will look great once it is all finished.

This is also one of my favourite buildings in Zagreb – for demolishing. There is actualy a long list of ugly buildings in Zagreb, but pity this one is in very center of the city
