The news about the new place in the neighbourhood spread fast among the locals, and a visit to antiquarian bookshop has become an unavoidable ritual for many.

The antiquarian bookshop in Bauerova Street is the brick and mortar version of the eponymous online store, specialised in selling signed copies of books, first, rare and special editions, avant-garde and neo-avant-garde publications and periodicals, autographs, documents and commemorative items. The enthusiastic founder and owner of is Dražen Dabić, former director of the Profil Bookstore and the Školska knjiga bookstore network, experienced bookseller and antiquarian. This store is dominated by fiction, books from the field of visual and performing arts, architecture, photography and arts in general.

In addition, Dabić’s work includes a small, but ambitious publishing activity, publishing three to six books per year, also in the sphere of avant-garde and arts, but also domestic poetry. One of the first editions is testimony that no one will be left behind — a poetry and photography monograph Alone in This Woods by Drago Glamuzina and Stanko Abadžić, with a foreword by Zoran Ferić. The edition is a bibliophile’s dream, printed on fine paper, and bound in black and red linen. Red and black are also the colours of the visual identity of the bookstore, whose interior emanates a special meditative atmosphere, recognised by its patrons.



Atelier Ostrman

One of the more interesting locations in Lopašićeva Street is the art studio of the painter Tomislav Ostrman, Atelier Ostrman, where he exhibits and sells his own pieces and those of his colleagues and friends, alongside organizing small social events in this attractive workshop.

Garderoba Concept Store

With the opening of Ana Ivančić’s Garderoba, Zagreb got its first conceptual showroom for Scandinavian fashion. Garderoba is a carefully thought-out project, a room whose elements have all been designed by brilliant Croatian designers and architects, thus also adding a Croatian brand to the offer.

Slatka priča

The Slatka Priča pastry shop was started in 2013, and is currently in three places – Kranjčevićeva Street, Ivana Brlić Mažuranić Street in Zagreb’s Malešnica neighborhood, and, of course, Martićeva Street (since 2016), more precisely at the busy corner of Martićeva and Smičiklasova.


Mikrofon is a music school started in 2009, located in the charming inner courtyard of 19 Martićeva Street. Its predecessor was the Vocal Studio Maraton vocal workshop from Rijeka, and the school has since then grown from offering single singing lessons to group singing and lessons for children, as well as instrumental music lessons.

Medveščak Library

The Medveščak Library, our neighborhood’s branch of Zagreb City Libraries, encompasses three departments – adult, children’s and youth (also known as “Idi pa Vidi”, or “Come and See”). Besides normal library duties, the library also engages in setting up various exhibitions in its windows, and workshops in the rooms of the youth and children’s departments.
