State Archives Zagreb – Historical Zagreb Documents

State Archives Zagreb is situated in a beautiful 19th-century Erdödy-Drašković palace. Not to mention it is a protected cultural monument.


State Archives Zagreb is primarily an institution for preserving national and local documents. On the other hand, they are located in a beautiful 19-century palace with a courtyard.

The palace consists of two buildings. An older two-story Baroque palace and a classical style one-storey facing towards Opatička Street. Together they enclose the courtyard which is an irregular shape.

At the State Archives, you have a chance to research old Zagreb city records. In the first place, they are a national archive. Open to the public with both digital and physical access.

We have to point out that the courtyard is home to one of the Courtyards event which is held during summer. With every courtyard comes its own story.
