This is not the first time that the university has earned this excellent recognition. It marked 350 years since its foundation precisely in 2019 and it is one of the oldest universities in Europe.
It is also important to note that education had a very significant role in the life of the city even prior to that. Zagreb got its first secular school in mid-fourteen century and the first grammar school in early fifteenth century. Zagreb is defined by its long tradition of a city of knowledge and inventions, which is visible in an increasing number of start-ups and founding of hubs which promote young people and their development and support them in building international business careers. Another interesting fact to note: the electric car that entrepreneur and innovator Mate Rimac and his team dazzled the world with and achieved great business success is located in Zagreb as well.
