  University of Zagreb
by elcolibri

The University of Zagreb is the oldest Croatian university and also the oldest university in South East Europe. It was founded in 1669 by Emperor and King Leopold I Habsburg , giving the status and privileges of a university to the Jesuit Academy of the Royal Free City of Zagreb, but two hundred years after during his visit to Zagreb in 1869 the Emperor Franz Joseph signed the Decree on the Establishment of the University of Zagreb.
Now the building, in front of the National Theatre houses the Faculty of Law.
