Public transport Zagreb
As in other major cities, public transport plays an important role in transport around the city.

Like other European capitals, Zagreb relies primarily on tram lines. These are complemented by buses, suburban trains and also cable cars.
Zagreb is, quite understandably, also the center of Croatian theatre events. With a little searching, you can come across about twenty different theater scenes with different focuses and, of course, different levels.

There, in a truly beautiful neoclassical building, houses not only the Croatian National Theatre, but also the City Theatre.
