The capital of Zagreb is the largest city in Croatia. One of the local legends explains the origin of the name of the city. The leader of one military campaign during the small rest of his squadron pierced his sword into the ground. Suddenly, a fountain of cold water was hammered from under the ground. The warrior exclaimed: "Shovel down!", or translating into Croatian language "Zagrebayte". His squad began to actively shovel the water, quenching a strong thirst. So that is how the name of the capital appeared. But there is another version that city received its name from the Old Croatian word "zagreb" - a mound, fortification.
For the first time Zagreb was mentioned in 1093 and in 16th century Zagreb became the most important and significant city in Croatia. The capital have very straight and plain streets. Buildings in the city are mostly multi-store. Zagreb is a very green city with numerous monuments of art and culture remained from the past centuries. The capital is conventionally divided into the Upper Town (northeastern part) with old historical buildings and the Lower Town - the modern part of the city, which is visible on the web camera of our live broadcast.
