Thats a really good price for a large cappucino!

Where I am ..... you wouldnt believe what I have to pay for a large cappucino take-away ....

A really bad one is about 11 Kuna!

A really good one is about 13.50 Kuna .......

2-kunas-cappuccino is a joke
Avarage price for cappuccino in ZG is 7 or 8 kunas (about 1 €). It is not much cheaper than in Australia, considering your and my salary

Nice pictures. I was in Zagreb for the first time as a kid and it was a cute city. Fine to see the further embellishing of the historical centre.

It's been embellished a whole lot more since we gained our independence in 1991 comparing to the period of ex-Yugoslavia (1945-1991). In that peroid the city was atrociously neglected, the only possitive thing ever happened to it was Universiade in 1987 when a number of sport facilities were built and rebuilt as well as Cibona tower was built, and that was it...

Here are some images of what Zagreb looked like in 1988-1989 :

Well, the second picture is not that bad. And, honestly, the main reconstruction of many cities and towns began here in Slovakia at the beginning of the 90ies, although some work has been performed even at the end of 80ies.
Although I can´t blame many city and towns authorities for the not finishing the reconstruction as well as starting and finishing a new one.

It is fine to see many activities in Zagreb. Cibona looks cool. Also it is fine to read the construction news from Zagreb.

True in what Bubach says. Zagreb was neglected somewhat during Yugoslavia. Zagreb's full charm is now beggining to show and thats one of the reasons more tourists are now visiting it now. Last year there was something close to a million visitors.

Zagreb looked awesome during the 1980s! The main square (second and third picture below) was refurbished and looked better than ever:

Bravo!!!

A fine collection of photos you have made Long Foot!

There's some things I noticed .....

The National Bank and the Ministry of Sports & Education buildings almost look identical except for colour.

You took some very fine pics of the State Archives building from the side angle, normally this building is photographed face on, but I think it looks heaps better the way you photo graphed it.

BTW the Privredna Banka Zagreb is one of my favourite buildings in Zagreb.

Also, what is this building? I cant remember seeing it in the city centre. How many levels? .....

That building belongs to cultural institution "Napredak". It was confiscated by comunists in 1945, but Croatian government gave it back to "Napredak" few months ago.
It was build in 20-s or 30-s by architect Stjepan Planić on the corner Gajeva/Bogovićeva. Very nice building, but it has only 8 floors.

Front sides of National bank and Ministry of education are identical. Both buildings are located on Trg hrvatskih velikana (former Trg burze). I will try to take photo of both buildings together, so you can see that great symmetry.

They both are quite symetric speaking of their shape, although it looks to me like each was built out of different material. I guess we will have to wait to see that until the Ministry of education gets renovated as well
