Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of Croatia. It is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia, with a population of nearly one million, which is almost a quarter of the entire population of Croatia. Over the centuries, the city was inhabited by people coming from all over Europe; and, in recent years, by people coming from different parts of Croatia, ensuring a rich cultural life.
Around 30 theatres are active in the city, some with regular programmes, some occasional. Along with some 30 museums, a large number of galleries and many theatre, music and dance festivals all combine to make Zagreb a city of art.
During the MetArh conference, Zagreb Advent & Christmas Market offers the experience of the city with numerous events popping out on every corner. It has been voted the best Christmas Market in Europe for three years in a row.
MetArh conference is being held on the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences which is the largest higher education institution in Croatia and part of the University of Zagreb, the oldest university in Croatia and one of the oldest universities in Europe.
The lectures will be held at the Conference hall on the 2nd floor of the Faculty Library
