Kino Europa

Right next to Petar Preradović Square, popularly known as Cvjetni trg (or Flowers Square), you'll find an atractive old cinema and cafe Kino Europa (or Cinema Europa). Built in post-secession classicist style in 1924/1925, Kino Europa was commissioned by the wealthy Zagreb-based Müller family and destined to become the most important movie theater in the region. 

In 2013, the Ministry of Culture declared Kino Europa a protected cultural heritage and national treasure of the Republic of Croatia. The cinema has a main auditorium with 500 seats, Müller Hall with 80 seats, a gift shop, two lobbies for small-scale events, and a bar. The activities of Kino Europa are supported by the City of Zagreb, the Croatian Audiovisual Centre, the Ministry of Culture and Ministry of Entrepreneurship and Crafts

The cinema is best known for hosting the Zagreb Film Festival, which you can enjoy here every October, as well as other film festivals, such as the Subversive Film Festival and Animafest (animated film).

Besides enjoying great films (such as Charlie Chaplin's Circus), you can also drink excellent coffee and grab a tasty sandwich or ice ream at Kino Europa café, buy cool stuff at Kino Europa Shop and use free wireless internet connection.
