This footage was filmed from the window of a bus in Zagreb, Croatia. I took the bus to my hotel from Pleso Airport. (Airport Code ZAG)
The bus ride starts off as quite rural, sort of a highway scene with fields and valleys around it. There are a few houses and office parks but quite a bit of farmland. It's fall, so there are lots of corn fields that are ready for harvest. That's the only vegetable I could easily recognize, but various other green veggies were in the ground also.
As the bus ride continues and we get closer to Zagreb City, development really ramps up. There are several shopping centers, apartment buildings, and office towers. It reminded me of any suburban office park in America.
Once we cross the Sava River, oldschool Zagreb appears again. While there was lots of construction going on inside the city limits, the place is largely unchanged with many historical stucco buildings.
A few things struck me about Zagreb. I was surprised at how modern the suburbs were becoming. I was also struck by the number of people who rode public transportation and bikes. It appears that Zagreb has made quite an investment in public transportation. All of the busses looked brand new and many of the trams were upgraded. Even though we arrived during the morning rush hour, traffic wasn't so bad.
Most of the cars were German and French, with the occasional old Yugo. By the time we arrived at the Four Points by Sheraton Zagreb (formerly Hotel Panorama Zagreb) I was ready to go out and explore the city on foot.
What a beautiful city, Zagreb is a real treasure of Europe!
