The wider Zagreb metropolitan area includes the City of Zagreb and the separate Zagreb County bringing the total metropolitan area population up to 1,113,111.

Zagreb lies at an elevation of approximately 122 m above sea level.

In the last official census of 2011 the population of the City of Zagreb was 792,875.

In relation to that, these images, acquired by the Landsat 5 and 8 satellites with an acquisition time window (before / after) of twenty-eight years, aim to show the urban difference before the war until today.

As we see in the overlay of the images, only small differences are visible to the north while clear changes in the fields can be seen, also taking into account the change of seasons in the two images.

Zagreb is the capital and the largest city of the Republic of Croatia.

It is located in the northwest of the country, along the Sava river, at the southern slopes of the Medvednica mountain.

The name "Zagreb" is mentioned for the first time in 1094 at the founding of the Zagreb diocese of Kaptol, and Zagreb became a free royal town in 1242, whereas the origin of the name still remains a mystery in spite of several theories.

In 1851 Zagreb had its first mayor, Janko Kamauf, and in 1945 it was made the capital of Croatia when the demographic boom and the urban sprawl made the city as it is known today.

A cultural as well as commercial centre, the city has a university (established in 1669); an opera house; music, art, and film academies; museums; art galleries (such as the Strossmayer, which boasts paintings by the Old Masters); and the former Yugoslav Academy of Science and Arts.

Landmarks here include the 15th century Cathedral of St Stephen, an 18th century palace, and the remains of an 11th century cathedral.

Zagreb has a special status in the Republic of Croatia's administrative division and is a consolidated city-county (but separated from Zagreb County), and is administratively subdivided into 17 city districts, most of them being at low elevation along the River Sava valley, whereas northern and northeastern city districts, such as Podsljeme and Sesvete districts are situated in the foothills of the Sljeme mountain, making the city's geographical image rather diverse.
