Kino Europa is the most beautiful cinema in Zagreb, built in post-secession classicist style in 1924. and situated in Varšavska street.
From its beginnings, this cinema has been a bystander of political turmoil. It survived several political regimes, changed its initial name from “Balkan kino” to the more eligible “Kino Europa” during the War of Independence, but in spite of all those changes, it has kept its doors open for every film buff in the city.
In 2008, after the civil initiative for preservation of this opulent cinema, city government entrusted its management to Zagreb Film Festival organization. Thanks to them, the citizens of Zagreb have one more place where they’re able to watch latest independent films, national and international festival laureates, and all those films they won’t easily find in some Movieplex. Kino Europa has also become a national film center that is a host to many film festivals and art related promotions as well.
Besides, it’s a place in which you can drink excellent coffee and grappa or grab a baguette, toast or a tasty ice cream at Kino Europa café, buy cool stuff at Kino Europa Shop and use free wireless internet connection. All of that combined definitely makes Kino Europa Zagreb’s perfect hotspot.
