Zagreb, Croatia by Nika Loncar

Take a walk through my home town

I'll post photos every once in a while, in no particular order, but I'll try to explain as much as I can about what's on them.

First stop: main train station:

Croatian national theatre, built in 1895 by architects Ferdinand Fellner and Herman Helmer, opened by the emperor Franz Joseph:

In the front is the statue "The spring of life" by the famous croatian sculptor Ivan Meštrović:

Nice! I was in Zagreb last summer, but unfortunately just for a few hours. The city seemed really nice though.

Museum Mimara

This building was built sometime in 19th century and it used to be a gymnasium until 1987, when it became the museum. It's called Mimara, by the croatian art collector Ante Topić Mimara who, during his life, collected over 3700 of various works of art and donated them to the croatian people. Among others here you can see works by Raphael, Rubens, Renoir, Rembrandt, ancient Egypt and China etc.

Zagreb looks quite nice in these shots. I particularly like the theater although I'm not crazy about its color.
