Zagreb County (Croatian : Zagrebačka županija) is a county in central Croatia. It surrounds – but does not contain – the nation's capital Zagreb, which is a separate territorial unit. For that reason, the county is often nicknamed "Zagreb ring" (Croatian : zagrebački prsten). According to the 2011 census, the county has 317,606 inhabitants, most of which live in smaller urban satellite towns.

Contents

The Zagreb County once included the city of Zagreb, but in 1997 they separated, when the City was given a special status. [5] Although separated from Zagreb City County both administratively and territorially, it still remains closely linked with it.

Zagreb County borders on Krapina-Zagorje County, the city of Zagreb, Varaždin County, and Koprivnica-Križevci County in the north, Bjelovar-Bilogora County in the east, Sisak-Moslavina County in the south and Karlovac County in the southwest.

Franjo Tuđman Airport is located on the territory of Zagreb County, the biggest and most important airport in the country.
