Why Zagreb?

Croatia is Slovenia’s neighbouring country and Zagreb is the closest foreign capital to Ljubljana. Visitors from Slovenia are attracted by variety of cultural sights, events, and numerous fairs, traditionally reaching back to the 19th century when the first international trade show was held in 1864.

Did you know that in 1906 the Croatian S. Penkala was the first in the world to patent an automatic pencil known today under the name of mechanical pencil? In 1907 Penkala also patented the first solid-ink fountain pen, a predecessor of today’s ballpoint pen. Did you know that neck ties originated in Croatia? In the 17th century Croatian soldiers began to tie adornments around their necks (Croat – cravat).
