The City of Zagreb, as the driving force behind the Croatian economy, being the business, industrial, scientific, educational, research and financial centre, encourages and develops an economy based on entrepreneurship, knowledge and innovations, as well as on a quality goods and services market, with a special focus on developing and advancing the labour market and the educational system. Such initiative demonstrates the City’s desire to promote entrepreneurship and do everything in its power to, within its jurisdiction in the economy and economic infrastructure, encourage the creation of new jobs and to create better material and social perspective of its citizens.
The activities of Zagrebački holding, a company owned entirely by the City of Zagreb, promote an efficient provision of communal and other urban services. As the owner and founder of the Zagreb Innovation Centre ZICER, the City of Zagreb supports anyone who wishes to embark into entrepreneurial waters by developing an innovative idea or a product.
If you prefer traveling by car, you ought to know that Zagreb is situated along the
Trans-European Transport Networks corridors linking Western and Eastern, as well as Southern and Northern Europe. Croatian highways, one of the best infrastructures in Europe, connect us with all our neighbours and provide easy access to every part of Croatia. The Adriatic Sea is a mere 2-hour-highway-ride from Zagreb.
The Zagreb Bus Station is near the city centre and it provides its users with a fast and safe mode of transportation. With the Station’s 44 platforms, buses connect Zagreb to the rest of Croatia, as well as to most European capitals.
Zagreb is also very well connected via its railroad network by the Urban-Suburban Railroad system.
The continuous investments in the public city transport also grant the City’s metropolis status – the tram fleet has undergone several modernization projects since 2005, when the first locally produced low-floor tram was introduced to the streets of Zagreb. Investment projects that include new buses and specialised vehicles for the transport of persons with disabilities, positions Zagreb as high-standard on the scale of public transport.
