Zagreb’s Iconic Cinema Kino Europa Turns 92 Today

Kino Europa

One of Zagreb’s iconic movie theaters turns 92 today.

Kino Europa, which is a protected cultural heritage and national treasure of Croatia, today celebrates 92 years since it first opened its doors.

Kino Europa started to be built in 1924 by the Zagreb-based Müller family, wishing to construct the most beautiful, important and modern cinema in the region.

On 8 April 1925, at its current address of Varšavska 3 near Flower Square, the cinema opened its doors to the public for the first time. It did not take long for it to become a cult place in the city.

92 years later and it is still going strong. In 2016 the cinema beat 1,078 European cinemas from 644 cities to win the Best Programming Award, awarded by Europa Cinemas, which was one of the most significant honours bestowed ever to a cultural institution in Croatia.
