Map of Lower Town (Center)

Center map


Donji Grad – lower town – is the district located directly beneath the city centre. This official name is hardly ever used, however. Most of its residence simply call it “centar” (centre), even though the city centre also includes some parts of the district Gornji Grad–Medveščak. The central square – Trg bana Jelačića – holds most of Zagreb’s events and is one of the most popular spots to meet in Zagreb. This district also holds most of the city’s cultural buildings, such as the famous Mimara Museum. Its squares and parks form the “Green Horseshoe” of Zagreb with its U-shape.
