Little Zagreb is our favorite miniature, and we love to write about it. Now, it has come to life with the help of the Zagreb Tourist Board. Miniature installations that look like real Zagreb’s buildings facades, shop windows, stores and crafts will be placed in eleven attractive locations at the beginning of spring.
The author of the project, artist and director Filip Filković Philatz, realized this project with a group of creative young people (Mia Martinović, Josip Kresović, and Lucija Švob). “The idea was to reflect the living space of our big world into miniature proportions, to emphasize the importance of paying attention to the little things in life and the details that enrich it,” says Filip Filković Philatz.
The Zagreb Tourist Board also took part in the realization. Martina Bienenfeld, the director, stated: “We saw this irresistible art project at the end of 2020 on social networks and connected the team as we wanted virtual miniatures to become alive. Symbolically, with the first day of spring, these charming but complex installations will come to life in reality. Mali Zagreb always creates a desirable moment of surprise for everyone who sees it with its discreet appearance. It’s a non-invasive and ambient outdoor project that does not encourage large gatherings, as an example of positioning Zagreb as a responsible and safe destination. “
You can see Mali Zagreb until September 5, 2021. It is placed in unusual places – on the curbs and at the foot of fences, walls, and buildings in public areas. To see and enjoy it, you need to stop, look down and look for it. A unique map has been created with all locations and can be downloaded from the Visitor Centers or online, on the website of the project and the Tourist Board.
