A systematic revitalization of cultural and historic ensembles has been noticeably absent in modern Croatia. Some activities in cities have been carried out in an ad hoc manner without a systematic approach and appropriate methodology, legal framework or spatial planning and other documentation. The situation that arose after the earthquake in Zagreb on March 22, 2020 should give impetus to do what should have been
done a few decades ago, namely to launch a systematic professional and scientifically based restoration of the protected historic ensemble of the City of Zagreb as well as of other cities in Croatia. This publication was conceived as a contribution to this goal as well as a contribution to repairing the consequences of the earthquake in Zagreb. It is expected to provide the answers to numerous questions that accompany the process of urban revitalization. The publication consists of three main chapters that give a general introduction to the modern process of urban revitalization, offer illustrative examples of transformation and urban revitalization of European cities and suggest useful guidelines for initiating and implementing the urban revitalization process of the City of Zagreb.
