“The Swamp” is all you would imagine it to be and more. It’s dark and sticky, full of hidden corners and surprises lurking from the dark. You never know what to expect but one thing is for sure, whenever you go there you’ll definitely have a blast. Močvara has been the melting-pot of Zagreb’s alternative scene for over a decade.
Situated in the old socialist factory “Jedinstvo” (Unity), it hosts some of the most interesting clubs Zagreb has to offer. No matter if it’s “Dirty dancing” night full of retro hits, a showcase of young bands who have grabbed their chance to be heard, a music festival hosting worldwide known bands (2010 Mars festival with the unforgettable performance by Skunk Anansie was one of those memories we’ll keep for a lifetime) or an indie underground concert, you can be certain you’re in for a great night.
The crowd in Močvara is also as diverse as its repertoire – a friend of mine always goes there in high heels and says that doesn’t stop her from all-night long dancing, while I prefer not to wear my brand new white sneakers taught by the experience of trying to wash off the dirt and beer-stains.
Apart from the club itself, the adjacent large hall of Pogon Jedinstvo has emerged in the recent years as one of the most exciting art/performance/music venues where you can find everything from d’n’b and techno party nights through to the first Croatian drag queen festival.
