Pozdrav iz Zagreba – Greetings from Zagreb is an Android app that uses historical city postcards to take you on a virtual tour through Croatia's capital, Zagreb.

Download the app to choose between an old or a current map, take a historic walk through 10 locations and send or share 50 old postcards with friends and family. Even if you are not currently in Zagreb, the app's Now&Then feature will show you how the city changed through time.

Developed by the National and University Library in Zagreb (NSK) and powered by the Zagreb Tourist Board, this mobile app combines maps, postcards, and photographs. Greetings from Zagreb features historical postcards that are part of NSK's collection and available on Europeana.

Download the app or take a look at the project's website.
