Culture, elegance, history and charm blend together to form the image of Croatia’s capital, Zagreb. With all the perks of an international capital city, Zagreb is a great destination for meeting, incentive, conference, team building or product launch events. The city has many luxurious hotels, several conference centres, elegant venues for gala dinners, fun activities for MICE groups, trendy bars and clubs as well as a great choice of international and local cuisine. The old town with its cafe culture, the bustling market selling anything from food to antiques, the old funicular and quirky museums all add to Zagreb’s old charm. The city is an all year-round destination as its typically continental climate will allow you to enjoy all four seasons in this interesting Croatian capital.
Zagreb is an excellent choice for conferences since the city has many hotels with superb meeting facilities as well as large congress, museum and exhibition centres with excellent meeting spaces. Zagreb is also ideal if your delegates are coming from all over the world since the city has excellent flight connections. Team building and incentive groups will enjoy exploring the old town or the beautiful countryside with stops made in wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants to sample the local food which is a wonderful mix of continental and Mediterranean cuisine.
Zagreb continues to grow as a MICE destination in its own right and conference groups in particular are increasingly more attracted to the Croatian capital due to high quality hotels and competitive prices compared to other European capitals. Famous brands such as the Hilton, Sheraton, Westin (Marriott) and Best Western can all be found in Zagreb. Zagreb’s iconic Esplanade Hotel 5* established in 1925 has welcomed numerous celebrities, presidents and politicians throughout the years and it is an excellent option for VIP groups. There are also many business hotels in town as well as chic boutique hotels and several traditional hotels built in the city’s signature, Austro-Hungarian style.

The gourmet scene in Zagreb gets better and better every year and it has something to offer for everyone. Local and fusion street-food is particularly good and a great option for a walking gourmet tour coupled with a craft beer tasting. There are several modern restaurants with international menu options as well as high-end Michelin star restaurants and traditional Croatian restaurants.
For gala dinners, it is important to mention that Zagreb has more museums per capita than any other city in the world so a museum location is often one of our top picks for a gala dinner venue or a drinks reception. Zagreb also has numerous historic buildings that can be privatised for an exclusive event as well as industrial buildings, galleries, concert halls and beautiful squares that can all be used as an unforgettable event venue.
