Fantastic Zagreb nights

Sunrise over Upper Zagreb. One of the highlights of this nocturnal film festival for me was the eerie moonlight tour of the upper old town of Zagreb.

But this set was the best because this...

This can be attributed to many factors, the most obvious of which is the creative stranglehold suffered by the country at the hands of ...
