Translating as ‘Zagreb Lady’ and extending over 27 levels, this high-rise office building is ranked either the 1st or 4th tallest structure in Croatia, depending on whether you count the rooftop radio mast or not. The ‘Zagrepčanka 512’, a staggered race up the building’s 512 steps in aid of Croatia’s Addiction Awareness Month has been held annually since 2012.
