Grupa Studio & Showroom

As they say in Grupa: “Even when you fight with darkness, do it distinctively and with style!”

Not so long ago, the well-known product design trio Grupa moved into the neighbourhood and opened their showroom and store, where their own products can be purchased. The store is also home to their studio, which means that new products are created within the same premises where the existing ones can be purchased, right before the eyes of the visitors and buyers. The trio comprising Filip Despot, Ivana Pavić and Tihana Taraba, were among the first domestic designers to have taken the entrepreneurial aspect of their work into their own hands, taking over the responsibility for their products from the beginning to the end of their life cycle. The Grupa Studio & Showroom boasts products developed so far as part of the GrupaProducts brand, such as the innovative lighting systems ILI_ILI, Arigato and Model. Their premises certainly light up not just the street they moved into, but the entire neighbourhood.



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.
