July 31, 2019 – Continuing our look at Croatia as It Once Was, a visit to the capital Zagreb in 1969 to meet plenty of people enjoying their summer holiday.
Zagreb is a city that has really grown on me in recent years as it has developed from the boring city that it was when I first arrived.
There is plenty going on, a much better gourmet scene, a much more multicultural scene, and a very vibrant tech and entrepreneurial scene. Whereas 15 years ago I could not wait to get my business done and leave, today I could quite happily live there.
But how was it back in 1969, some 50 years ago?
Moving away from the coast in this latest video of Croatia in yesteryear, a HRT reporter tours some of the hot spots of the city and meets plenty of locals enjoying (for the most part at least) their holidays in Zagreb and not the coast, for a variety of reasons.
