In Za­greb, the cap­i­tal and largest city by pop­u­la­tion, neo­his­tori­cism and art nou­veau ar­chi­tec­ture is seen through­out the city giv­ing it a spe­cial charm. A mix of young and old, re­li­gious and sec­u­lar, restau­rants, cafes and bars, the city has a rich cul­tural life and the her­alded Ad­vent in Za­greb, which has been named (by Euro­pean Best Des­ti­na­tions) the best three-times in a row as the best Christ­mas Mar­ket in Europe. Bro­ken into three parts, Gornji grad (Up­per Town), Donji grad (Lower Town) and Novi Za­greb (‘new Za­greb’), Za­greb is known as the city of mu­se­ums as there are more of them per square foot than any other city in the world. Among the many ex­cit­ing mu­se­ums in the city, one that is a must-go is the Mu­seum of Bro­ken Re­la­tion­ships, a global crowd-sourced project with per­ma­nent mu­seum out­posts in Za­greb and Los An­ge­les. Lo­cated in a baroque Kul­mer palace in the Up­per Town, the mu­seum takes vis­i­tors on an emo­tional, heart­break­ing and com­i­cal jour­ney through a vast num­ber of bro­ken re­la­tion­ships.
