His short stories (short story) are usually divided into two groups, based primarily on his themes, but also his techniques, methods and styles: * realistic stories taking place in local settings of Zagreb and Zagorje (Hrvatsko Zagorje) and with characters taken from real life, * bizarre tales with weird, individualist characters. He was born in Sušak, Rijeka. Rebellious by nature, he was expelled from Rijeka high school and dropped out of the school in Zagreb. Because of his participation in the demonstration against the Hungarian governor in Croatia, Khuen-Héderváry (Károly Khuen-Héderváry), he was sentenced to three months in prison in 1903. Headstrong and temperamental, he called himself Kamov, after Ham (Ham (son of Noah)) (or Kam) from the Old Testament, who saw his father Noah naked but unlike his siblings Shem and Japhet did not cover his nakedness, thus issuing a curse. Kamov probably saw himself as a revealer of bourgeoise hypocrisy and wrote to his brother Vladimir in 1910 - "Kamov to me is a literary program..." death_date WikiPedia:Zagreb Commons:Category:Zagreb Dmoz:Regional Europe Croatia Localities Zagreb

. In 1891 her father obtained special permission to enroll Marić as a private student at the all male Royal Classical High School in Zagreb. Highfield, 1993, p.37 She passed the entrance exam and entered the tenth grade in 1892. She won special permission to attend physics lectures in February 1894 and passed the final exams in September 1894. Her grades in mathematics and physics were the highest awarded. That year she fell seriously ill and decided to move to Switzerland, where on the 14th November she started at the "Girls High School" in Zurich. Highfield, 1993, p.38 In 1896, Marić passed her Matura-Exam (Matura), and started studying medicine at the University of Zurich for one semester. In the autumn of 1896, Marić switched to the Zurich Polytechnic (ETH) (later Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule (ETH)), Trbuhovic-Gjuric, 1988, p.35 having passed the mathematics entrance examination with an average grade of 4.25 (scale 1-6). Trbuhovic-Gjuric (1988), p.60. She enrolled for the diploma course to teach physics and mathematics in secondary schools (section VIA) at the same time as Albert Einstein. She was the only woman in her group of six students, and only the fifth woman to enter that section. Highfield, 1993, p.38 D. Trbuhuvić-Gjurić, ''Im Schatten Albert Einsteins'', 1988, p. 35 She and Einstein became close friends quite soon. Before World War I, numerous other railways were built. In 1860, Pragersko was connected to Ormož (Ormož railway station) and further to Čakovec, Croatia, thus connecting the Austrian and the Hungarian part of the empire. In 1862, a single-track railway (expanded into double-track in 1944) along the Sava river was built, connecting Zidani Most with Zagreb. In 1863, the "Carinthian railway" was built along the Drava river, connecting Maribor (Maribor railway station) with Dravograd (Dravograd railway station), Klagenfurt (Klagenfurt Hauptbahnhof) and Villach (Villach Hauptbahnhof). In 1870, a railway along the upper Sava river valley was built, connecting Ljubljana with Kranj (Kranj railway station), Jesenice (Jesenice railway station) and Tarvisio, Italy. In 1873, a line from Pivka via Illirska Bistrica (Ilirska Bistrica railway station) connected Rijeka, then the most important commercial port in the Hungarian part of the empire. In 1876, a line from Divača connected Pula, the Austrian naval base, via Prešnica. In 1906, Bohinj Railway was built, connecting Villach with Jesenice, along the Soča river valley to Gorizia and further to Trieste, with two over-6000 meter tunnels. Crossroad of Pan-European corridors Ljubljana is at the heart of the SŽ system. Here, the Pan-European corridors V and X intersect. These transportation corridors are being established to tie larger segments of Europe economically together: Corridor V links Venice - Trieste Koper - Ljubljana - Maribor - Budapest - Kiev, while Corridor X connects Salzburg - Ljubljana - Zagreb - Belgrade - Thessalonica. The freight system to Koper, a modern and growing port east of Trieste, represents the shortest connection to the Mediterranean for a large portion of the hinterland of Central and Eastern Europe.

'''Zagreb''' ( The wider Zagreb metropolitan area includes the City of Zagreb and the separate Zagreb County bringing the total metropolitan area population up to 1,110,517. It is the only metropolitan area in Croatia with a population of over one million.

Zagreb is a city with a rich history dating from the Roman times to the present day. The oldest settlement in the urban area of the city is Andautonia, a Roman settlement in the place of today's Ščitarjevo. The name "Zagreb" is mentioned for the first time in 1094 at the founding of the Zagreb diocese of Kaptol (Kaptol, Zagreb), 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.

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. The city extends over north-south.

The transport connections, concentration of industry, scientific and research institutions and industrial tradition underlie its leading economic position in Croatia. Zagreb is the seat of the central government, administrative bodies (public administration) and almost all government ministries (Government of Croatia). Almost all of the largest Croatian companies, media (Mass media) and scientific institutions have their headquarters in the city. Zagreb is the most important transport hub in Croatia where Western Europe, the Mediterranean and Southeast Europe meet, making the Zagreb area the centre of the road, rail and air networks of Croatia. It is a city known for its diverse economy, high quality of living, museums, sporting and entertainment events. Its main branches of economy are high-tech industries and the service sector.
