Every day of the year, you may see Cinema Europa Varavska 3.

Kino, a classic film from the golden era of cinema "Despite being designated as a cultural historic site, Europa is still in use as a theater and a bar. The fact that Kino Europa is a favorite hangout for young urbanites, mostly hipsters, should come as no surprise. It's just next to the flower-filled Cvjetni trg, which puts it in the heart of the action (or Flower Square).

The festival's film program is unique in that it showcases films from all around the world. Croatian film events such as the Zagreb Film Festival and the Subversive Festival, both of which take place every year at the cinema, have also been hosted there.

If you expect to see the Avengers, don't show up expecting to see them. Only go if you're searching for hard-to-find independent flicks. As a participant, you contribute to support the documentary film industry by exposing yourself to real-life stories from across the world. Tuesdays are referred to as „Subtitled Tuesdays "The films on display come from all over the world, and they are entirely subtitled.

Make sure to swing by on Tuesday if you happen to be in Zagreb. It's important to glance about the room and take in the magnificent architecture, even if you didn't like the film.

All year round, the Nikola Tesla Technical Museum can be found at Savska 18.

You may have heard of Croatian-born physicist Nikola Tesla, who became a household name after moving to the United States in the early 1900s. As might be anticipated, the Zagreb Technological Museum owes its existence entirely to him.

Exhibits are organized into areas like energy transformation and geology and mining to make it easier to find what you're looking for. If you're curious in something else, browse areas like aeronautics.

Visitors may learn more about Nikola Tesla's inventions and personal life in a museum cabinet dedicated to his work.

Whether you're into science and technology or just want to have a good time, this is a great chance to learn something new. You may reach there via tram, bus, or even on foot (15 min walk from the Zagreb main square).

the TORTUREUM, which may be found at Radieva 14

There is no such thing as an unwelcome day here.

Visitors to Tortureum should be prepared for a frightening encounter, despite how bizarre it may appear. Not even the creepy multimedia instructions and around 70 torture devices on display can prepare you for what's in store. A couple more surprises are in store for you, but they'll remain a mystery for the time being. The guillotine and the scold's bride, which were intended to punish chattering women, are among the earliest torture devices on display.

The museum may easily be reached from the city's main square through Radieva street. The museum admission tickets are reasonably priced at about 4-5 euros.
