Zagreb 10000 Croatia
Dating back to 1925, The Regent Esplanade Zagreb is one of the most famous and gracious buildings in Zagreb. The hotel has a long and distinguished history and is famed for its impeccably high standards of service.
The Hotel Esplanade owes much of its mystique to its proximity to Glavni Kolodvor, the Capital train station, which was a major stop on the Orient Express. Upon com-pletion it was hailed as "a triumph of home architecture & craft".
