You were looking forward to visit Zagreb for the 14th NooJ 2020 International Conference, but the conference was moved to the virtual environment!
Worry not! Croatia, and in this case Zagreb specifically, has a lot to offer via web as well. Here are some sightseeing opportunities we recommend to read about and get ready for your next opportunity to visit us.

Ban Jelačić Square, Ilica and „Flower Square“

  • Ban Jelačić Square is Zagreb's central square.
    Excerpts from the Wikipedia page: „The square has existed since the 17th century. Its first name was Harmica. The oldest standing building, dating from the 18th century, is situated at 1 Ban Jelačić Square.“ „A large statue of ban Josip Jelačić on a horse, created by Austrian sculptor Anton Dominik Fernkorn was installed on 19 October 1866 (…)“ „The 1987 Summer Universiade (World University Games) was held in Zagreb. The city used the event to renovate and revitalize the city. The square was repaved with stone blocks and made part of the downtown pedestrian zone.“

    To get to Ban Jelačić Square from The Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences of the University of Zagreb, you can take a 30 minute walk, or you can use the public transit system by taking tram number 13 (direction Žitnjak) from tram station „Sveučilišna aleja“, or trams 12 (direction Dubrava), 14 (direction Mihaljevac), 17 (direction Prečko) from tram station „Zagrepčanka“. Both tram stations are in 5-10 minute walking distance from our faculty.
