Literature
 

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.

 

The adult department offers its services to adults, high-schoolers and retirees, especially those in the Lower Town area. Visitors are tended to by a professional staff, informaticians, and assistant librarians. Two of the library’s computers allow access to the digital catalog, and the chosen books are checked out and returned at the assistant librarians’ counter, where membership in ZCL may also be created or renewed.

Part of the library’s collection is free to peruse and check out and consists of more recent Croatian and foreign fiction, while the rest (arranged by scientific disciplines) is partially kept stored (those older than 2003), and the more recent part is freely available. Likewise, members of the ZCL may freely use the internet for half an hour, and a half an hour more for the price of 2,5kn. Also, the shop windows of the library are usually thematically arranged.

The “Idi pa Vidi” (“Come and See”) youth department’s location has been 17 Zvonimirova Street since the start of 2014, in the historically important building of Gospodarska Sloga (Economic Harmony), the home of the August Šenoa Library up until 2011. The building is considered a protected cultural heritage. “Come and See” is intended for socializing, reading, writing and reading for school, teen literature, surfing the web, and much else, but only for members between 13 and 20 years of age.

See you in Medveščak Library!

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

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.
