About Kristina Sajko-Dvornik
Hi, My name is Kristina and I'm originally from Croatia, living in California for the past 18 years. I'm 38 years old, and I'm married. We have a 6-year-old son and a 5-year-old daughter. I'm a very responsible and reliable person. I'm currently "not working" so I can take care of kids and household! My night out is dinner with a few close friends and a glass of wine. I love sports and active life! I do not smoke. I only sip too! If you have any questions please feel free to ask. Best,
Kristina Sajko-Dvornik purchased this Apartment in 2016
Why Kristina Sajko-Dvornik chose Zagreb
We bought this apartment cause this is the city where I was born and where I grow up. We like to go back every year and now being a family of four it's more convenient for us to have our own place then staying with family and friends on every visit. We only spend about 3 weeks a year in Zagreb and the rest of the year we are renting it out.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love this area because it's in the heart of downtown Zagreb. All the shops, restaurants, museums, grocery stores, market places and meeting points are walking distance, which is great when you are traveling! It saves us a lot of time!

Grič Tunnel was built in 1943, during World War II and connected to Zagreb tunnels. Its primary purpose was to shelter civilians from frequent bombings during WWII and the Croatian War of Independence.
After all, it is a part of a network of Zagreb tunnels under the Upper Town. But the only one open to the public!
You can find the tunnel entrances as they are marked with Zagreb coat of arms. Once you look at Zagreb coat of arms on the rooftop of St. Marks Church, you will notice the underground, secret door under the castle. Symbolizing the entrance to hidden Zagreb network of tunnels.
Stories and legends speak of secret underground passages all over the city. One of them speaks of the great 1880 earthquake. When it is said most of the tunnels disappeared, containing the church gold.
Nowadays it is a buzzing new Zagreb tourist attraction. The tunnel was renovated in 2016 with traces of old warning signs and new public toilets.
With its 350-metres it is a great place to host events. Amazing events were held here, such as:
• 1993 Under City Rave
• Advent in the Tunnel
• Flora Art
• Croatia je Hrvatska
The best event so far was the award-winning multimedia exhibition “Croatia je Hrvatska”. The exhibition brought you through time, showing Croatia’s rich and turbulent history.

• Mesnička Entrance
• Radićeva 19 Entrance
• Art Park Entrances 1 and 2
