“Tko pjeva zlo ne misli” movie screening + discussion over popcorn and drinks @ CLA

This movie is based on a wonderful comedy play set against the backdrop of charming and innocent pre-World War II Zagreb. The film revolves around the main character and heartthrob bachelor Mr. Fulir who is madly in love with another man’s wife. In order to keep his true sentiments hidden he pretends to be interested in the wife’s best friend and in doing so is forced into friendship with his flame’s moronic husband.


Guided tour of the library + drinks @ Spunk

Explore the Zagreb University library whose history dates back to 1607. Now located at one of the city’s entrances,  this modern cubical library stands as one of Zagreb’s most recognizable landmarks since 1995 and is a focal point for all students of the Zagreb University. We will take you on a tour of the library and its records as well as sit down for a drink at one of the local, student frequented cafes.


Guided tour of the Croatian State Archives + coffee and snacks

Explore one of Zagreb’s most beautiful buildings from the early 20th century. The building of the Croatian State Archives to this day stands as the leading mansion of the Croatian art nouveau. It is often a subject of expertly visits by architects, building constructors and art historians from all over Europe. We will take you on a guided tour of the archive’s most important rooms and afterwards discuss our impressions over coffee at the nearby Botaničar cafe.
