It’s tradition to become THE Classic – we adore it!

Every summer, Zagreb offers its residents and visitors many cultural events, beginning with the outstanding Zagreb Classic for all classical music lovers. Over 11 days, at one of Zagreb’s most beautiful squares, King Tomislav Square, works by Croatian and international musicians will be performed by renowned artists who have graced many world stages. All concerts are free, so I invite all Zagrebians to be part of this musical story that, year after year, enhances the promotion and recognition of our city, especially in the cultural domain.
