3 Historical Venues in Zagreb that deserve a special mention!

If a historical ambience is what you’re looking for your next MICE in Zagreb, we bring you 3 iconic venues that are seeped in Croatian history.


1) Croatian National Theatre

In 1895, when the Emperor Franz Joseph I opened Zagreb’s baroque temple of art with the sound of a silver hammer, it turned into an iconic event. More than a century later, the classy feel that locals and city guests sense when standing in front of this neo-baroque building and its gorgeous interior, is still preserved today. The stage, on which many drama, ballet and opera shows have been held matched with a rich decor and splendid hospitality services, makes this masterpiece a top pick for organizing congresses, meetings, receptions or promotional events that will provide for a memorable experience to all guests.

The Theater Hall boasts of a 800 sqm. capacity while the Hall, First floor foyer and balcony can be used as a combined unit boasting of 350 sq. m of space.

2) Croatian State Archives

Built in 1913, the The Croatian State Archives building is one of the most beautiful seccesionist buildings in Croatia. It is a solitary building situated within a park and it blends well into the urban plan of Down Town Zagreb; that is the so-called ‘green horseshoe’ which is based around several other city parks. This place, filled with rich works of art (paintings, reliefs, chandeliers and desk lamps, as well as decorative objects and furniture), is ideal for holding business meetings as well as top-class events where the beauty of the place itself will be an additional tool for success.

The Main Reading Room boasts of a capacity of 406 sq m for your group and can host upto 900 people in a cocktail reception style. The Professor’s Reading Room and Assembly Hall I are great options for hosting gatherings too!

3) The Illyrian Hall

Not many houses in Zagreb can testify to big events as can the Illyrian Hall. It has a most beautiful interior made in the classicist style, and it is also one of the most important buildings in the modern day cultural and political history of Croatia. Built in 1838 and in 1844, the Illyrians who fought for an independent Croatia, bought it and would hold society meetings, fancy balls and various conferences here. If you want to ensure that a meeting, reception or promotion with business partners is talked about as a memorable one, then this is the right choice for those who look for an atmosphere of exceptional ambience equalled by its dedicated service.

The Illyrian Hall boasts of 275 sq m of space and can host 220 people in a cocktail style reception.
