Kino Europa is the most beautiful cinema in Zagreb, built in 1924 in post-secession classicist style 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 the Zagreb Film Festival organization. Thanks to them, the citizens of Zagreb have one more place where they’re able to watch the latest independent films, national and international festival laureates, and all those films they won’t easily find in some Movieplex. Actually, a darn good one – so good that Europa Cinemas handed Kino Europa the award for best programming in 2016.
Besides that, it’s a place where you can drink excellent coffee and grappa at the Kino Europa café, buy cool stuff at Kino Europa Shop and use their free wireless internet connection. All of that combined definitely makes Kino Europa Zagreb’s perfect hot-spot.
