Yugo Sightseeing tour and adventure
The city of Zagreb, capital of Croatia, on the historic and political threshold between East and West, illustrates both the continental and Mediterranean spirit of the nation it spearheads. Zagreb is the cultural, scientific, economic, political and administrative centre of the Republic of Croatia, and is home to the Croatian Parliament, Government and President. Its favourable location between the Pannonian plain, the edge of the Alps and the Dinaric range has allowed it to become a crossing point for mass international communication.
The historic events of the 20th century transformed the map of the world and left a mark on the lives of citizens of Zagreb. In 1918, after the World War I, Croatia severed all bonds with the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy and became a part of the Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes, a new state formed by the south Slav peoples. The population of Zagreb increased and new districts emerged in the eastern and western parts of the city, while impressive residences were built in the foothills of Sljeme. In this early part of the 20th century, Zagreb developed close links with other European centres of art, culture and science
For people living in Ex-Yugoslavia the one and only Yugo was never just a car, it was both a member of a family and a best friend.
The production of that legendary car reached the number of 784.428. Yugos were being assembled in Zastava factory in Kragujevac between early 80’s and 2008.
Everybody drove a Yugo and it was even exported to many countries – from the Great Britain to the USA becoming the cheapest new car money could buy. However, western world didn’t share our enthusiasm towards Yugos, claiming it was “The worst car in history “. Ironically, that nickname gave Yugos a whole new career – the one of a Hollywood movie star. This pride and joy of Yugoslav motorcar industry co-starred Bruce Willis and Samuel L Jackson in Die hard 3, Danny de Vito in “Who drowned Mona“, it appeared in The Simpsons and many other movies and TV series.
We are here to share the legend, and if you want a Yugo story of your own that will begin with „You remember that one time years ago when we were in a good old Yugo…“ check out our YUGO adventures and LET’S HIT THE ROAD!!!
