Fieldwork: Activism & Municipalism in the Trešnjevka Neighbourhood
A walking tour around Trešnjevka will lead you through key locations of this traditionally working-class neighborhood. On one side, you'll have a chance to see the Zagreb as it used to be, and on the other side you'll hear the story of the mismanagement of the communal services and how organised neighbors can change it.
