Zagreb, Croatia

Population: 790,000 

 

Croatia’s capital Zagreb is the country’s largest and most economically significant city.  Located along the Sava river and bordered by the Medvednica mountain and its nature park, Zagreb has rich natural features.


The Living Lab: Sesvete

The Living Lab was located within the Sesvete district in the East of Zagreb at the foothills of the Medvednica mountain. With its 70,000 inhabitants, Sesvete has the youngest population in Croatia, and a strong community and entrepreneurial spirit. Located on various key European traffic routes, Sesvete has an industrial past and present, with a particularly active car and construction industry. Distinctive, tall silo buildings form part of Sesvete’s skyline and industrial heritage. In particular, the site of the former meat-processing factory, Sljeme, was the core of the Living Lab, with NBS implemented in and around the silo buildings themselves.
